Band & Strip Heater

Product Description

Band & Strip Heaters

Band and Strip heaters are most suitable for cylindrical and flat-surface applications.  It can accommodate various types of termination designs, as well as, customized cut-outs and holes that offer flexibility to customer applications.  It uses either, mica or ceramic insulation materials depending on customers’ temperature range requirement.  Both insulation materials allow for efficient heat transfer from the heating wire to the surface of application, ensuring uniform heat distribution, which extends the life of the heater.

Ceramic band/strip heaters can go as high as 80 W/in².  Mica band heaters can reach up to 55 W/in². While, Mica Strip Heaters can go up to 35 W/in².

There are various ways of clamping or mounting the band heater, depending on the customer application or requirement.  The clamping method or mechanism affects the quality of heat transfer rate and has its advantages and disadvantages.
