Cartridge Heaters

Technical characteristics

CCHC high density cartridge heaters can concentrate a very high heat flux, up to 50 W/cm² and an operating temperature of up to 800°C, subject to an H7 bore.

Main characteristics :

  • 80/20 nickel-chrome heating wire wound on a sintered magnesia core, insulated with magnesium oxide;
  • Stainless steel metal shield;
  • Standard sealing by ceramic head and cement Silicone or epoxy sealing (180 ° C max. depending on models) for applications which must resist to humidity;
  • Connection by flexible wires as standard, cable or threaded terminals on request. The wires can be mechanically protected by a metal braid or a flexible sheath;
  • Orientation with straight exit (in the extension of the cartridge) or with angular exit 90 degrees;
  • Accessories: threaded fitting, flange, tab …

.

In addition to our wide range available from stock, we produce custom-made high density cartridge heaters, with special options:

  • Special dimensions
  • Integrated thermocouple
  • Several heating zones distributed along the length
  • Reinforced power zone….

CCBC low density cartridge heaters : They have been designed for applications requiring watt densities of less than 6 W/cm² and having a surface temperature not exceeding 300°C . Unlike in the high density models, they do not withstand vibrations or shocks. Manufactured only on request , they can be equipped with connections and accessories identical to the high density models.
