Channel Strip Heaters with Post Terminals

PTSHEAT Channel Strip Heaters have proven to be extremely efficient and dependable as a heat source for surface heating in hundreds of industrial and commercial applications.  The rectangular tube gives full surface contact when used in a milled slot to provide a maximum heat transfer area.
For surface mounting installations, channel strip heaters must be securely clamped along their entire length to a smooth metal or conductive surface.  When supported by mounting tabs, the terminal end should be secured firmly. Opposite end should be loose to allow for thermal expansion.  Contact one of our Sales Engineers for exact specifications that will work for your application.  We are factory trained to work on NEW application design as well as crossing over OEM strip heaters.
