During processing I heat my oil in 400L batches using a 3.8kW water heating element . This has worked for several years but recently either the elements or the thermostats have been failing.
I understand oil doesn't remove heat quickly enough from a water heating element and this causes them to fail.
Whereas the water for which it is designed removes heat more quickly.

I would like to hear from other users who use water elements satisfactorily or if anyone knows of a good source of a dedicated oil heater. Scintex sell one for $800-$1299 but the water heater are about $50
With thanks.
