|Types of Flexible Heaters|
|Silicone Rubber Heaters
OMEGALUX™ silicone rubber fiberglass insulated flexible heaters can improve heat transfer and speed warm-ups w here controlled heating is required in confined areas. All heaters where both the length and the width dimensions exceed 12" (305 mm) use the wire-wound element design. Effect of power density: gentle warming is best done with 2.5 W/in2. A good all purpose unit is the 5 W/in2. Rapid warm-up and high temperature are achieved with the 10 W/in2; however, temperature must be controlled as the safe maximum operating temperature limit of 450°F (232°C) may be exceeded.
|Kapton Insulated Flexible Heaters|
Kapton insulated heaters are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and wattages. Wattage ratings are 2.5, 5, or 10W/in2 at 115 or 28 V. Kapton offers a high degree of resistance to chemicals, and has excellent outgasing properties in high vacuum environments. Typical construction consists of an etched foil element of 0.0005" or 0.0001" thickness which is encapsulated between two layers of 0.002" Kapton and 0.001" FEP adhesive.
OMEGALUX™ Silicone Rubber Extruded Heating Tapes are lowwatt density electrical resistance heaters designed for temperature maintenance in applications requiring moisture and chemical resistance. Silicone rubber tapes are constructed of finely stranded resistance wires fully insulated with braided fiberglass and knitted into flat tape with fiberglass yarn. These tapes are encapsulated in a voidfree silicone rubber sheath
OMEGALUX™ rope heaters apply heat to tubing with diameters as small as 1/8" (3.2 mm). Featuring a maximum allowable operating temperature of 482°C (900°F), the FGR series rope heaters can be wrapped around either conductive or non-conductive surfaces. Each end terminates with 24" (610 mm) long fiberglass insulated lead wire. These rope heaters are very similar to our heater tapes. Please review our tape heaters for your application needs.
|Wrap Around Tank Heaters
The OMEGA™ TOTE Series tote tank heaters are flexible wraparound surface heaters offered in different sizes based on height. These heaters provide a quick, easy, non-invasive way to warm your product. They fit nearly every standard tote tank utilizing adjustable nylon straps with buckles. There are 3 straps for placing around the tank and 2 for across the top. Units include an adjustable thermostat and a manual reset high-limit thermostat for each of the 2 zones.
|Gas Cylinder Warmers
OMEGA’s GCW Series gas cylinder warmers create a convection current and increase pressure inside the cylinder. This cost-effective process reduces condensation, allowing more gas to fill the cylinder. Use with gases such as SF6, propane, nitrogen, oxygen, BCl3, WF6, and HF.
