Press-fit standard heating elements for industrial processors can arrive ready-made for integration. What about configurations involving custom heating elements designed to spec across design and engineering networks? Correctly applying these tools demands partnerships with reliable, capable precision-intricate solutions providers who can suit the unique needs of their clients.
Teams stand to benefit immensely from the expertise. A thorough understanding of available options and thermal applications ensures the success of the product and the relationship.
A Look at the Tubular Element
Flexible, open, and closed coil custom heating elements save energy over their usage. The reference to tubing in the name of the name can be a little distracting. Most think of round shapes, but in this case, the term ‘tubular’ covers the flattened, triangular, and finned varieties as well.
Many come single or double-ended and feature overheat protection, high-temperature sheaths, and timing controls.
Open Coil Heater
These popular heater types come in ceramic, and showcase voltage dropping, resistance coils using gauge wires ranging from AWG 16 to AWG 40. Minimum tooling is needed to utilize the open coil assembly, and they see long field life. They’re compact, economical, and employ external lead termination.
The Foil Heater
They’re exceptional in performance and relatively inexpensive cost wise; users have reported an efficiency improvement rate of around 50 percent. Whether acryllc or silicon, the moisture resistance makes the foil heater one of the best choices when compared to other options – the key is the flexible fiberglass element.
