- Titanium Heater Element - Bulk Reef Supply
A Reliable Long-Term Heating Element!
We have been on the hunt for a reliable heating element that solves a lot of the issues we currently have with other heaters in the hobby. We have always had issues with heaters that have built-in controllers and segregating the controller out from the heater allows it to do a single job, keep your tank warm. Each heater is fully submersible and lets you place the heater right where you need it without any compromises.
- Fully Submersible
- Includes Suction Cup Mounts
- Corrosion Resistant Titanium Body
- 6-Foot Power Cord
- 3-Year BRS Warranty
Four Sizes Available:
- 100W - up to 40 Gallon Aquariums
- 200W - up to 75 Gallon Aquariums
- 300W - up to 100 Gallon Aquariums
- 600W - up to 200 Gallon Aquariums
Compared to glass heaters, titanium heaters are virtually unbreakable and will never shatter in your aquarium and can conduct heat through the body much quicker, ultimately making them more efficient. In most cases when a glass heater fails, the failure-prone seals will go bad allowing water into the heater body and can start to corrode the contents inside the heater causing water contamination and possible electric shock, or the body will just shatter leaving glass particles throughout your aquarium. Titanium heating elements take both of those risks and eliminate them by having a shatterproof body along with welded end caps for a life-time of operation.
How to Control the Temperature?
A heater is only as good as the controller telling it when to turn on and off. The BRS Titanium Heater Elements require a temperature controller to monitor your tank's temperature, and power the heaters on and off as needed. We really like to use the Bulk Reef Supply Aquarium Heater Controller to create a stand-alone heater management system, but works great with full-blown aquarium controllers like the Neptune Systems Apex Controller.

Function over Form By reefermadness on 6/28/2020reefermadness would recommend this product to a friendGot the 200W for my 55 reef, including the controller. So far it does a great job keeping the temperature within set range. It was easy to setup and configure. Audible tone works awesome and literally just went off because my temp was higher than set range. My only complaint is the color. Not sure if any reef safe paint exists that could be use to cover the titanium, but the sliver stands out on my black tank background. I would still buy this versus any other heater.
TITANIUM AQUARIUM HEATER By steve on 6/3/2020steve would recommend this product to a friendvery good heater no problems
200w Bad weld By Austin on 5/19/2020Austin would recommend this product to a friendMy 200w had a bad weld and started oozing out a tad bit of blue stuff. I don't think any of it got in my tank and if it did I'm running carbon so I hope that got it. Sometimes with products you get unlucky. I trust Ryan enough to know this was bad luck and the heaters aren't cheaply made so thats why it's a 4 star review. If you know anything about BRS the customer support was a breeze and I'm saying that while in the middle of a pandemic. Word of advice is to at the very least buy a cheap backup if something like this happens. This is supposed to be a really good heater so I think buying a backup of one of these is a waste of money cause it should last a lot of years. Thanks for the quick service BRS and I believe Chad helped me out. I sent a picture in the middle of the day and got in the online chat and asked if he could please just take a look at the email and he did. We caught it right then and I appreciate not having to wait for someone else to look at the email because I probably would have put it back in my tank so thank you Chad!
Build looks great poor heating By stephen on 2/23/2020stephen wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have two 100w heaters in a 40 gallon breeder with a 40 gallon sump plus rock and equipment. Temp set at 78 on their controller with a 1 degree swing temp in tank when these were installed temp was 78 with two cobalt stealth heaters next morning temp was at 75. I don’t think the watts to gallons heating capability chart is accurate.
Too good for the page ratings By Tyler on 2/23/2020Tyler would recommend this product to a friendThese heaters are great - almost too good!
A single 600w heater is pulling 660w, and heating my 160gal system by 1deg in only 20 minutes! This is way too fast, I'll need to down-size, and can't return the 600w heater as it's been in my tank.
I wish I hadn't followed the wattage recommendations! I should have picked up a 300w heater for my 160g.
200w on a 300 gal By Ryan S on 1/30/2020Ryan S would recommend this product to a friendGot two 200w elements for my 300 gal.
On a closed but vented hood and the typical sump equipment I'm able to heat with a single 200w BRS heater.
When set at a 0.5 degree swing I'm cycling my heater on ~5 times a day. 1-2 times during lights on and 3-4 times during lights off in room at a constant 72 degrees. Takes ~3.5hrs to heat and 6-10hrs to cool.
This is the minimum heater I can get away with at this size and a legit heater holder is necessary as this thing laying on a sump probably wouldn't end well.
Best Heater Ever By Derik on 1/11/2020Derik would recommend this product to a friendAmazing build quality, small foot print. Tight fit in return chamber of Trigger 34 sump, but it did fit. Set my Apex to a temp range of 77.4-77.5 and the reading has been 100% stable @ 77.5 for the past 24 hours. I love my Jaeger heater but, I don't think I could go back to glass after this bad boy.
Look no further By John on 12/15/2019John would recommend this product to a friendBy far the best heater I’ve ever used in the 25 years I’ve been reefing. Along with the BRS controller you can’t go wrong
Best heater I’ve had By Dustin C. on 12/9/2019Dustin C. would recommend this product to a friendBest quality built heater I e seen so far. Good going on this one.
The new standard in the industry. By Bart on 12/6/2019Bart would recommend this product to a friendWe dropped two 600's in the sump with the BRS controller and it's on temp all the time.
Unbreakable,with a three warranty.The new standard in the industry.
Great Heater By Blake on 11/15/2019Blake would recommend this product to a friendI purchased one 600W BRS Heater to replace two old 250w offbrand heaters I had on a 75g tank in my garage. The previous heaters were allowing the tank to drop to 68 degrees during the cold nights. The BRS heater hasn't let it drop less than 0.1 degree from the setpoint! I'm very happy with my purchase. Now if those magnetic mounts would just come back in stock!
Solid build quality. Simple By Justin on 10/24/2019Justin would recommend this product to a friendthe heater element looks to be made in Germany. Very simple indestructible heater element which is what I’ve been looking for. I’ll control it with my apex which I have multiple temp probes on. Good call on OEMing this product BRS! Only time and many units in the field will tell, but so far this thing looks rock solid.
Is there a maximum length of time the heater should be on for or is it rated for continuous duty? Not looking for a conventional wisdom but actual ability.
It is intended to be used for short periods of time to keep an aquarium at a specific temp. Outside of that use I would not be able to recommend.
I just purchased 2of the 600w heaters for my 180 gallon tank. Are these heaters safe to use in a acrylic sump?
Maintaining good flow over the heaters will also ensure there is no localized heat buildup. Provided the sump chamber housing the heaters does not run dry and the heating elements do not contact the sump directly they are 100% safe for use in an acrylic sump.
I hope this helps!
When will these be back in stock?
We are hoping to get a shipment in this week!
Would 2x 300W elements cover a 225g DT w/ 50g sump and protect against destruction if either stuck on or off?
Two of our 300 watt heating elements should be able to maintain your systems temperature provided the ambient temperature isn't outside of normal room temperature range. If you need much more than a 10 degree increase you may find your heaters are on all the time in which case you may want to add an additional heater or a larger heating element on a seasonal basis.
With the 300 watt elements, provided you can catch a failed heater within a reasonable amount of time, you should be able to take corrective action before the tank temp drops too low or gets too high. Having a stand-alone thermostat capable of alerting you to a significant drop/increase in temperature (i.e. an Apex) is ideal.
I hope this helps!
Definitely interested in your new heaters. But....
I currently have an 8" long heater which just manages to fit in the return of my HOB skimmer.
I see that your 100 watt heater is 2.5" longer.
My first question is; does the heater have to be submerged?
If not, how far down does it have to be, in relation to the water line of my skimmer?
Also - assuming it fits - I noticed the 150 watt model is the same size, yet only a few bucks more. All things being equal would be nice to have if I upgrade my tank (currently 38g).
But might it be more likely to damage the acrylic of my skimmer body than the 100 watt?
The heater does need to be submerged but not fully, if you look at the pictures we have you will see a line indicating how far the heater needs to be submerged. We highly do not recommend adding the heater inside of your skimmer, that is a bad idea if the skimmer stops working it will completely melt the acrylic.
Hi, Can you use this heating element with the Inkbird controller?
Yes, you can use these elements with Ink Bird controllers :)
