|Strip Heater Styles and Types|
|Standard Strip Heaters
The HCS Series stainless steel strip heaters provide clean, dependable heat with sheath temperatures up to 649°C (1200°F) and watt densities up to 40 W per square inch. Because of the seamless stainless steel sheath, these ceramic-insulated strip heaters are dimensionally stable in milled slots.
|Finned Strip Heaters
High-quality, coiled nickel-chrome resistor wire is uniformly spaced over the width and length of the finned strip element, then embedded in high-grade refractory material which both insulates the wire and transfers heat rapidly. The refractory is then compressed to rock hardness and maximum density under tremendous hydraulic pressure to improve heat transfer from coil to sheath. Elements are oven baked at high temperatures to semi-vitrify and mature the refractory. Sheath material is either rust-resisting iron or chrome steel. Fins of aluminized steel are provided to improve that transfer to the air. Elements are individually replaceable.
|Seamless Incoloy Sheath Strip Heaters
Strip-heater advantages for higher temperature applications are offered by NS series. The heater design, materials and construction give long life for given power densities. The Incoloy sheath encloses nickel chromium resistance wire embedded in a densely compacted refractory material selected for dielectric insulation value and good heat conduction to the sheath. The small cross-section is often an advantage where space is a factor.
|Wide Strip Heaters
The OMEGALUX™ WS series strip heater features 2 terminals placed at a right angle on one end. A standard width of 2 ½" makes them ideal for most strip heater applications.
|Ring Strip Heaters
The ring strip heaters are easy to install. The flat circular shape are ideal products for heating tank bottoms, lead melting pots, dies, platens, hotplates, incubators and many other applications.
