Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX would be glad to assist.Is this element like a water heater element?Do you have a 110 volt power supply? What is it you are doing with the element?What wattage?
With the information, we can determine what you can expect out of the element at 110 volts.
Let me know, and we can continue, thanks
Yes, that is correct, a heating element itself can work on different voltages than the one that it was designed for initially.The key, is you lose the wattage as you go down in the voltage, so keep that in mind as to what wattage you need for your particular situation.You have the formula to calculate whatever elements you wish.You can use any standard thermostat with sensing bulb, just go with an analog type and it just makes and breaks the voltage when it reaches temperature.If you go digital, then you need the voltage to match for its operation, whether it is 110 or 230 volts.CLICK HERE and see an example of the type thermostat.I am sure you can find one at a building supply close to you or one you regularly shop .
