Can #cartridgeHeaters be used to heat liquids?

Cartridge heaters are generally not suitable for heating liquids in direct contact as they are usually of the high watt density type. Liquids do not offer a fast enough heat transfer as metals and therefore will cause the heater to quickly overheat or liquid to quickly evaporate and boil.

We do however have a nipple type cartridge heater that allowed for use in liquids as it keeps the terminal away from the liquid by the threading into a suitable waterproof connection.
