Our most popular product is our cartridge heater. We make low to medium and high watt density cartridge heaters. Cartridge heaters provide localized heat to restricted work areas requiring close thermal control. Dies, platens and a variety of other types of processing equipment are efficiently heated. Closely controlled work temperatures up to 1400 deg, F (760 C) are obtained by a combination of heater location and proper wattage output.
Immersion heaters are ideally suited for heating various liquids. They are available in various sheath materials and watt densities tailored for your specific applications. Units may be supplied for single, three phase or three heat operation. The lead end of the unit may be sealed for extreme environmental conditions.
Air process heaters will provide hot air and gas up to 1400 deg. F (760 C) with infinite control by varying the voltage and air flow. Air heaters are available with various male and female fittings, hose adaptors (entry only) and flanges. We can also provide temperature sensing control.
Stainless steel strip & Finned strip heaters provide clean, dependable heat with sheath temperatures up to 1200 deg. F (650 deg. C) and watt densities up to 40 watts per square inch. Finned strip heaters are available with aluminum or stainess steel fins. Mica insulated strip heaters are also available in various sizes.
Foil Heaters are a self contained one piece assembly. A resistance element is laminated between two layers of aluminum foil. This heater is ideally suited for area and surface heating applications. Operating temperatures up to 300 deg. F (150 C). Sizes range from 125” to 60” wide with lengths of 4”and up.
Glassrope® heaters are flexible heaters available in various lengths, sheath materials and terminations. Operating temperatures up to 900 deg. F (485 C).
