About our Electric Cast Iron Radiators

Many of our Cast Iron Radiators can be converted to Electric Cast Iron Radiators by adding one of our heating elements. There are limitations when using an electric heating element. Firstly, the cast iron radiator needs to be long enough to house the heating element and secondly, the heating element needs to be powerful enough to heat the cast iron radiator in a reasonable amount of time.

Not all of our castings are suitable for using with a heating element. The maximum operating temperature for electric cast iron radiators is 65 degrees Centigrade, meaning that they have a slightly lower heat output than the same radiator used in a traditional wet plumbing system. 

The time it takes to heat the radiator to operating temperature depends on several factors: the weight of iron in the radiator, the volume of water it contains, the wattage of the heating element, and the typical heat output of the cast iron radiator.

The larger the radiator the higher the heat output once the radiator reaches operating temperature, but the longer it will take for the radiator to reach this temperature and the more electricity will be required to keep it at this temperature. If the radiator is too large for the heating element it will never get hot. 

We have done the calculations to help you choose the best radiator for your situation:

Heat output Watts (ΔT=45) 550 watts  605watts 660 watts   715watts  770watts 825 watts

Internal water volume 6.7l 7.37l 8.04l 9.71l 9.38l 10.05l
Approx. Weight of Iron 42.8kg 47kg 51.2kg 55.4Kg 59.6Kg 63.8Kg
Estimated Time to reach operating Temperature (1200W HE) 38-45mins 44-52mins 49-59mins 56-68mins 63-78mins 71-90mins
