Strip heaters, or component heaters, provide an easy and efficient way of using surface area for effective heat transfer.
Steel strip heaters are an excellent industrial heating product. Using a temperature controller such as a mechanical thermostat makes them easy to control. Installing a bimetal thermostat on the heated surface is another cost-effective solution for strip heating.
Mounting holes help mount process heaters securely on almost any surface, with the 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 control panel is easily adaptable to this configuration.
Temperatures reach as high as 500℉ (260℃) and use the high-quality magnesium oxide found in tubular elements that allow effective heat transfer. An inexpensive way of heating surfaces or small areas, strip heaters are an excellent solution to meet any budget.
Strip heaters are composed of a heating element, a protective sleeve or sheath, and mounting hardware. Radiant heater strip heaters 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. That makes them optimal for indoor applications where strip heating can be applied.
