Keep the Water Warm

Ritchie upgrades immersion heater.

Ritchie Industries has added a new immersion heater to its line of automatic livestock watering fountains and accessories.

The new unit features an epoxy coating which prevents corrosion and deterioration. The design allows no metal to touch the water and features a built-in thermostat and an upper end safety switch to prevent overheating.

The heater is designed for use in poly livestock waterers such as those in the Omni, Thrifty King, WaterMaster and WaterMatic families. It can also be used in buckets and stock tanks. Power requirements are 120 VAC with 250 watts of heating power.
