Band Heaters

We offer a range of Mica, Ceramic and Tubular Band Heaters.  Band heaters have a variety of uses in the manufacturing sector.  Mica heaters can attain a maximum sheath temperature of 900°F, but with different electrical termination styles, clamping mechanisms, and ability to accommodate holes and cutouts, mica band heaters are successfully used in many applications, but are mostly sought for in the plastics industry.

Ceramic heaters are medium-to-high temperature heaters that can deliver up to 1200°F. Ceramic heaters flexible and highly energy efficient. An energized ceramic heater that operates at 1200°F internally will have around 400°F on its outside shell. Ceramic heaters consume 20 % less energy than band heaters that are not insulated. An additional advantage of Ceramic heaters is that they transfer heat through conduction and radiation. This makes their tightness on barrels less critical; thus they are less prone to thermal expansion problems.

Strip Heaters (Channel and Finned)

Channel strip heaters are reliable flat heating cells, designed to provide efficient heat to flat surfaces and in space heating applications. The thick rectangular stainless steel housing of these heaters provides a rugged construction suitable for industrial applications.

Finned channel strip heaters are highly efficient heating cells that are utilized in many air heating applications like driers, duct heaters, curing ovens, dehumidifiers and shrink tunnels. These heaters are designed to function in forced as well as natural convection air heating applications.

Cartridge Heaters

cartridge heater is a tube-shaped, heavy-duty, industrial heating element used in the process heating industry, usually custom manufactured to a specific watt density, based on its intended application. Highly compacted they reach a surface watt density of up to 50 W/cm².  It may be used to heat any kind of substance or material, such as oil, air, or sugar with the most common application are plastic pellets, which are melted in order to form molded plastic parts.  Cartridge heaters resemble tubular heaters structurally but tend to have higher watt densities.
