All Wenesco melting pots
utilize even convection heating designed and are
built to safely melt "soft" materials that liquefy
at temperatures up to 250F.
Convection heated melters have many advantages over
direct heat or water jacket melters.
There is no hot water to spill or evaporate with
convection heating. Ours cool quickly when turned
off and the pot is empty. The water in the jacket
retains heat for a very long time.
Unlike uninsulated water jacket melters, convection
melters are fully insulated. The exterior remains
cool during use which helps prevent accidental burns
and conserve energy.
Convection provides even heat. Heat up time is
usually 1-1/2 to 2 hours. There are no hot spots
like a direct heat melter. This means less danger of
burning your product if you have no stirrer in the
Our accurate temperature control ensures that you
will not overheat sensitive products. The air
temperature in the jacket will never exceed your
Convection heating can be used with little danger of
burning out heating elements. The high watt density
element in a water jacket melter will burn out if
the water level falls and exposes the immersion
