Finned strip heaters, often considered component heaters, are an electric heating element that maximizes heat intensity and transfer effectively in an area. Steel fin strip heaters are an excellent industrial heating product that can be easily controlled by using a heating control panel, mechanical thermostat or cost effective bi-metal thermostats that can be installed on the surface of the heater. Mounting holes are useful to mount the heaters securely on the wall housing with terminal extending from the sheath for easy electrical connections. Many users also request lead wires that extend from one end that make the installation more flexible as the temperature controller is easily adaptable to this configuration.
Temperatures can reach as high as 500 degrees F and use the high quality magnesium oxide that is also used in tubular heating elements that allow for effective heat transfer. Finned strip heaters are a fairly inexpensive way of heating small areas and are an excellent solution to meet any budget.
Finned strip heaters are composed of a heating element, a protective sleeve or sheath, and mounting hardware along with steel finned that are used to extend surface area. If strip heaters are used as a radiant heater, or a duct heater, they have can have fins to maximize surface area and heat transfer to the air. Strip heaters can be clamped or bolted onto objects or solid surface contact heating over large areas and are primarily used in indoor applications.
