WHDN are Danotherms largest, high power resistors. The power ranges from 40-1450kW. They consist of a steel tank with resistor tube elements fitted. The tank is fully welded. Depending on the environmental conditions steel AISI304 or AISI316 is chosen. All WHDN resistors are customized. Water in- and outlet, size of electrical terminals and protection circuits define the design.
