We are contactable by phone, or email and customers can pick goods up from front door.
Romar Elements will be on break from the 20th of December 2019 to the 13th of January 2020. Manufacturing times currently stand at ten days and therefore any orders taken after the 10th of December will be ready towards the end of January 2020.
We hope you all have a safe and happy holiday over the next coming weeks and look forward to assisting you with your heating needs in 2020!
No one likes missing out on their daily coffee, and if you run a cafe, a broken coffee machine could mean no customers.
At Romar, we can’t tell you what is wrong with your machine, but if you know you need a heating element, we can help.
Getting your heating element fixed.
Romar Elements can manufacture heating elements for new or old style coffee machines and we have rebuilt heating elements for machines which are now considered antique. As long as you still have the old element, we can create sheathed tubular element to suit.
What we need to fix a broken heating element.
If you need your element re-built, we will ask for the sample to be sent or brought in to our factory. The sample will be checked for immersion length, voltage and wattage, diameter and formation. This information is then transferred onto a design sheet and the element sample is dismantled. The tubular parts of the element are scrapped and the head of the sample is checked for any faults (wear and tear) and then shot blast clean. We will then manufacture new element/s, and refit by forming then soldering into the head. New terminations will be fitted and a new gasket (ask if required) can be supplied to fit.
How much will it cost?
There are so many different variations on form, material, length and terminations, we cannot give exact quotes until we see your heating element. However, the below table is a guide to help you establish the minimum cost for a replacement.
COMMERCIAL COFFEE MACHINE ELEMENTS
SINGLE ELEMENT FROM $80+GST (The elements has 2 terminations)
DOUBLE ELEMENT FROM $90+GST (The elements has 4 terminations as below picture)
TRIPLE ELEMENT FROM $100+GST (The elements has 6 terminations)
To determine how many heating elements are in the head, simply count the terminals at the top. Each element has two terminations, one at either end. The elements below show four terminations protruding from the head, they are all double elements.
For a single element there will be two terminations protruding from the head and for a triple element there will be six terminations.
How long does it take to fix/remake an element?
Manufacturing generally takes around ten days, however, if your business relies on a coffee machine, Romar can refurbish your broken element in 24 hours, for an emergency breakdown fee, as long as we have the original element sample.
*Please note the 24 hr manufacturing time does not include delivery time.

For over 20 years, Romar Elements has designed and manufactured electric heating elements for home and commercial/industrial brewing.
During this time we have had the pleasure of assisting customers with their varied brewing set-ups from the very simple 10 Lt kettle to 1000Lt+ multi-vessel set ups.
At Romar we can design and manufacture customised heating elements for the best watts density and performance according to customer requirements. This prevents unsatisfactory results such as burning sugars in your brew.
Romar Elements also offers standard off the shelf heating elements and controllers, designed for simple set ups.
Romar Elements will be closed on the 19th of December and re-opening on the 14th of January 2019. (Please note that orders placed after the 10th may not be delivered until after we open in 2019. Depending on complexity and quantity.)
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your ongoing support and wish you the very best in 2019!
Heating elements are not always easy to design, especially if you don’t have a sample, or you are developing a new product. We would always recommend you coming in to our office so we can discuss your heating needs in person, however because this is not always possible, we need a little more information over the phone or via email.
The drawing to the left shows some of the different aspects of a heating element that we may ask you about, whether you are having an element made or requesting a quote.
Often we will need to know what equipment the element will be working in, so we can get a better understanding of the environment and adjust the element materials to suit.
To bend up an element, we will need certain exact measurements depending on your needs. The sample drawings below are the more common shaped heating elements. These drawings may help you in determining the measurements you require when asking for a quote or ordering your heating element.
Please click on the drawing you are interested in to get a clearer view.
When you speak to our sales staff, please quote the number directly below the drawing box. We can then take your unique measurements and place them in reference against each important angle of the element. The more information we have the more precise your element will be designed and manufactured.

We always recommend you hire a licensed electrician or service repair technician to check out your water service tank. They can readily identify problems and suggest solutions that best suit your circumstances.
Once the heating element is out of the tank, it can be inspected for any faults and checked for wattage and length requirements for replacement.
Romar Elements can manufacture a large range of bolt on elements, in copper or incoloy (for hard water areas). Our standard manufacturing wattage range is between 750W and 4800W, and immersion between 140mm to 580mm. We manufacture hot water heating elements for residential, commercial, industrial and marine industries. All types of tubular heating elements for all types of tanks.
We also have a small supply of imported standard copper sickle and straight incoloy elements on shelf which come in wattages from *2400W, 3000W, 3600W and 4800W. *(dependant on supply)
Each bolt on heating element comes complete with sturdy rubber gasket for tight leak proof fitting. These rubber gaskets can be sold separately if required.
So don’t put up with cold showers if you don’t have to. Call Romar Elements today to get a new heating element for your hot water service tank.
At Romar, we know how difficult it can be to work out what you need for your heating application. There are so many varied designs, incorporating size, shape, wattages, voltages and material considerations, that our technicians need as much information that you can provide. Some of our basic questions are –
What are you heating? Water/air/oil/caustic solutions…
How much material are you heating?
What temperature do you need to heat the material to?
Are there any sensitive instruments or equipment that need to be protected from the heat source?
Do you require single or three phase?
Any particular shape or size to fit into your equipment?
These are just some of the questions you might be asked to create the best heating solution for the desired outcome of your project.

Poor water quality is quite common in areas with high mineral soils. The water collected in natural catchments can become saturated by minerals and impurities that then become a part of our household water supply. When this water is used in appliances, such as an electric hot water service, it can quickly corrode a heating element designed for less aggressive water.
Australian land, being a wonderfully rich source of metals and minerals, is renowned for just this type of problem, particularly in W.A and S.A.
There are a couple of things that can help assist the life of the heating element in a hot water service tank.
A higher quality sheath material, such as Incoloy (not the typical copper sheath type)
Sacrificial anodes, which will attract the corrosive impurities rather than the element itself (sacrificial anodes much be checked and often replaced regularly)
A lower watts density element, which delivers the same heat, with less intensity
If you do live in an area well known for it’s water impurities, or notice that you seem to be replacing your heating elements yearly or even monthly, consider the above options when buying a new heating element.
