Mica Strip Heaters
Mica Strip Heaters are manufactured by winding a nickel-chrome resistance ribbon around mica insulation and encapsulated in a stainless steel sheath. These strip heaters are available in an extensive variety of sizes and shapes with options for holes, notches and cut-outs. A variety of threaded terminals, wire lead options and terminal boxes offer great flexibility for on-site wiring. Offering temperature capabilities of up to 900°F, Mica Strip heaters are ideal for plastic processing applications and for anywhere heat is required on a flat or curved surface.
Ceramic Insulated Strip Heaters
High-Density Strip Heaters are constructed with a ceramic insulation that quickly conducts heat from the resistance wire to the sheath offering low internal temperatures and long heater life in most demanding applications. Precise placement of the resistance wire provides uniform sheath temperature across the width and along the entire heated length. Ceramic strip heaters are usually 3/8” thick and come with mounting tabs for easy installation. There are three terminal options to allow for easy installation wiring. These heaters are extremely rugged, capable of high temperatures and high watt densities.
