BAND & CLAD HEATERS

MICA BAND HEATERS

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Custom designed and manufactured to meet specifications

FEATURES

  • Flexible, one-piece unit allows for quick and easy installation and can be fully opened to the diameter of the barrel
  • Installed individually without having to remove other band heaters already in place
  • Excellent dielectric strength achieved by using high-grade mica insulation, which transfers heat away from the windings to the sheath of the band heater
  • High temperature nichrome resistance ribbon precisely wound for even heating
  • Mild steel, electrogalvanized steel inner sheath
  • Brightly annealed stainless steel outer sheath
  • Various clamping configurations available including welded barrel clamps, bent up angled clamps or quick-release clamps
  • Terminal arrangements available to suite your specific machine such as the standard kettle plug, connection box, stud terminals or flexible leads

APPLICATIONS

  • Plastic injection moulding
  • Plastic blow mouldings
  • Plastic recycling
  • Plastic extrusion

CAPABILITIES

  • Sheath temperatures to 280° C
  • Watts density ratings to 3,0W/cm2

 

SEALED NOZZLE HEATERS

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Custom designed and manufactured to meet specifications

FEATURES

  • Brass encapsulated for maximum thermal conductivity
  • Stainless steel option for nylon and higher temperature purposes
  • Manufactured with standard bent-up angle clamps
  • Terminated through a totally sealed terminal cap with flexible braided cable
  • Standard range available or custom designed to specification
  • Built-in thermocouple option

 

CERAMIC BAND HEATERS

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Custom designed and manufactured to meet specifications

FEATURES

  • Higher performance capability than the mica band heater
  • Ceramic insulating bricks used to support the element wire therefore allowing for higher thermal conductivity
  • A layer of low thermal conductivity insulation between the ceramic core and element sheath directing heat to the centre of the unit
  • Higher watt density results in faster heat-up times and throughput which increases overall productivity

CAPABILITIES

  • Operating temperatures up to 750° C
  • Watts density ratings to 6,0 W/cm2

 

CAST ALUMINIUM HEATERS

Manufactured primarily for the plastics industry these elements can be cast to suit any barrel or die that needs to be heated. These units can also be supplied with cooling tubes cast in for heating and cooling applications. With a low thermal mass of aluminium these heaters have a quick heat up time and due to the larger surface area, a lower loading on the element is exerted, resulting in a longer life expectancy.

 

FLAT METAL CLAD ELEMENTS

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Custom designed and manufactured to meet specifications

FEATURES

  • Excellent dielectric strength achieved using high-grade mica insulation transferring heat from the windings to the sheath of the clad element
  • High temperature nichrome resistance ribbon precisely wound for even heating
  • Low mass construction which heats up faster
  • Brightly annealed stainless steel outer sheath (also in brass)
  • Terminal arrangements to suit requirements including standard kettle plug, connection box, stud terminals or flexible leads
  • Economical and reliable
  • Manufactured in any shape

APPLICATIONS

  • Dies and moulds
  • Hot plates
  • Packaging and food warming equipment
  • Vulcanising presses

CAPABILITIES

  • Sheath temperatures up to 280° C
  • Watts density ratings to 3 W/cm2
