Ceramic Strip Seamless Strip heater

Ceramic Strip Heaters

The PTSHEAT Ceramic Strip Channel Heaters are stainless steel strip heaters which provide clean, dependable heat with sheath temperatures up to 649°C (1200°F) and watt densities up to 40 Watts per square inch.  Because of the seamless stainless steel sheath, these ceramic-insulated strip heaters are dimensionally stable in milled slots.  They can also be used in any number of applications requiring bolt-on heat.  Channel Strip Heaters are Conductive heaters and must have excellent contact with the part being heated for good thermal transfer.  You will also need to have a Thermocouple located close to the heater in your heated block to monitor the temperature of your heater and part.  Proper control is important for best heater life.

(For specific applications, correctly rated elements should be used to prevent overheating and to ensure long life)
