Abstract

The heating of liquids, especially water, is carried out in the homes and industries for various reasons. The domestic water heater has become a near- ubiquitous appliance in the Nigerian homes. An important source of concern with this appliance is the frequent possibility of outbreak of fire due to negligence on the part of the user. This paper describes an immersion water heater that is free from such hazards. The safety condition is achieved by incorporating a device, which automatically switches off power from the heating element when the water level drops below a certain mark.
