Liquid Cooled Band Heaters
Air Cooled Band Heaters
Crosshead Die Heaters
Cast Band Heater is the toughest band heater available. This cast band heater can withstand shock and vibration or contamination. They are made with or without liquid and/or air cooling. Liquid cooling incorporates tubing cast in as part of the heater assembly, allowing water or heat transfer solutions to remove the heat. Air cooling uses fins cast to the O. D. surface of the band heater. Blowers and specially designed shrouds aid in heat removal.
Cast Band Heaters can be made as Heat Only, Cool Only, or Heat/Cool. Tubular Heaters are cast inside the heater aluminum or bronze body. This provides excellent heat transfer. The inside diameter is machined to a precise dimension for a tight fit onto extruder barrels, transfer lines, and pipes.
Heat Only Bands are made with a tubular heater cast inside the heater body.
Cool Only Bands are made with a hollow Tube or Fins on the outside of the heater body. The hollow tubes allow a path for a cooling agent to be pumped through allowing the body to cool. Other Cool only bands have Fins on the OD of the heater so air can be blown over the surface to cool the Band.
Heat/Cool Bands are made with BOTH tubular heaters and either the Hollow tubes run parallel to the heaters or With the fins on the OD of the band. This design allows the Cast Bands to run as a heating agent or a cooling agent in the application.
