Baptism is very famous activities in churches. To be brief, the process can be simplified in these steps: stand, sit and then kneel down in the water for salvation and clarification. However, there’s a serious problem in the temperature of water for baptism, tank rarely stays stable. Indeed, water temperature depends on the weather.
Fortunately, due to number of innovation in technology has solved this problem. Baptistery heating units are particularly designed to keep the tank of baptistery constantly warm according to the user’s expectations. When it comes to baptistery heater, you may wonder of two types; the immersion type, also known as over the size type and circulation type. Indeed, they’re the two most popular genre of Baptistery heater used in church. Below we’ll completely understand about the types of baptistery heating units available in the market these days:
- Immersion baptistery heater: It’s normally T letter shape heater. The concept of immersion baptistery heater works is too simple: it converts electrical energy into heat energy using a stainless steel or other material that can be easily heated. The heat produced will warm up the water around the unit, the level of the water raises in the tank, whereas the cold water is replaced with the hot water around and is heated again and again. Over a passage of time the tank is completely filled with warm water.
Immersion heater works perfect on 110 or 220 voltage plus. Few have thermostats installed together with them, it enables the user to set and check the water temperature according to their need. Due to its heating method, immersion heater takes quite a long time to heat up the entire tank. Hence people install immersion heaters in a tank in some churches, homogenously to minimize the heating time.
- Circulation heater: Circulation heater is the next generation heater following immersion heater in the market. This heater has quickly drawn attention towards the people due to its heating time is shorter than immersion heater. The following mechanism of the device is: The inflow water is taken by the heater, it heats up and pump incorporated with the heater is responsible for pumping the warm water into the tank. Meanwhile, rest of the cold water inflow comes and heater heats up again, the process goes in viscous cycle during the entire ceremony. The baptized people feel relaxed and warm.
Make sure connect the safe electricity wire to connect the heater inside the water tank – this gives the users trust to install circulation heater in their churches tanks and get into the water with a machine beneath.
- Hybrid heaters: In simple words, hybrid heaters can be explained as the combination of immersion heaters and circulation heater. This is the most advanced device amid the church heaters available in the market these days.
