Component heaters (Strip, Ring, Band, Cartridge) by themselves meet many heating needs. They can also be integrated into more complex heating systems to provide a complete thermal solution for your heating requirements. Shape and size most often are the determining factor in most heater applications.
Strip heaters are used for heat transfer by conduction or convection to heat liquids, air, gases and surfaces.
- Food warming
- Freeze and moisture protection
- Tank and platen heating
- Dies and mold heating
High Quality, Coiled Alloy Resistor Wire is uniformly spaced over the width and length of the strip heater to assure even heat distribution.
Resistor Wire is Embedded in specially formulated, high-grade refractory mate- rial which both insulates the resistor and transfers heat rapidly to the sheath.
Refractory is then Compressed to Rock- Hardness and high density under tremen- dous hydraulic pressure to maximize heat transfer from coil to sheath. Elements are oven cured at high temperatures to semi- vitrify and mature the refractory.
Maximum Heat Transfer, from the instant the element is first energized, is provided by the high emissivity black oxide finish. El- ements with shiny surfaces do not transfer heat as well.
Strip Heaters can have parallel terminals, one terminal at each end and offset terminals, the most common.
Housings can be purchased for the terminals as an options.
