Channel Strip Heaters are available with or without mounting tabs. If without, the ends are welded shut to prevent moisture and contaminants from entering the heater. Tabs are not available on 1/4" thick by 5/8" wide heaters
Specially selected and de-signed ceramic insulator houses the resistance wire coil, insulating it from the outer sheath.
Note: Channel Strip Heaters are available with fins for air heating applications. SeeFinned Strip Heaters.
Helically wound nickel-chrome resistance wire is precisely strung through the ceramic insulator, and is then mechanically connected to screw terminals or lead wires for a strong positive joint.
Type 304 Stainless Steel Sheath provides physical strength and resistance to high temperatures and corrosion. Dependable at sheath temperatures of up to 1200°F (650°C).
A custom mixture of several High Purity Magnesium Oxide grain sizes, chosen to increase thermal conductivity and dielectric strength, are used to fill all remaining space inside and around the ceramic insulator.
Stainless Steel 10-32 threaded screws are Standard and are securely fastened (twist-proof). Various termination configurations and options are available. Click on a link above for termination type desired
