Flat heating elements

These elements, flat section, have many advantages over the heating elements round section:

  • Superior exchange surface with the heated material,
  • Lower power density with equal length and power: optimize the element lifetime,
  • Shorter heater with equal power,
  • Forming of the heater upon request according to your requirements…

cartouches plates - detail de la section

They can be used in varied applications such as :

- Heat conduction: for tools, plates, moulds, hoppers…

- Liquid heating: in the oil industry some applications require many kilowatts,.

- Air heating: exchanger with plates…

  • Technical description :

Specially manufactured heaters.

Heaters with 12 x 5.5mm – section.
Power density: up to 15 W/cm2.*
Surface temperature: 700°C max.*
* Density and temperature according using conditions.

304-Stainless steel metalic cable. Other materials according using conditions. Please, consult us.

The extremity of the element, the connection side, is sealed up to avoid the insight of any external agent in the element.
2 types of connection: “circular” or “flat”. (see drawing)
The other extremity is waterproof welded.

Electric insulation with extremely compacted mineral insulation.

The power supply cable are protected on the connection with ceramic perls or sheathing,
according to the manufacturing technology.

Standard connection: PTFE flexible insulated leads, length 150mm.
(max. working temperature: 250°C)
Standard length by 250mm-multiple up to 1000mm.
Other lengths: contact us. Other connection: see range.

Power supply: Amperage (6.8 A max.) and voltage depending on the characteristics of the heater.
