Vikas Ceramic Flange Heaters were developed to meet industrial requirements for high temperature long lasting heaters. They are ideally suited to comply with today’s new resins, which calls for ever-increasing process temperatures.
An additional advantage of the Ceramic Flendge Heaters is that they transfer heat through conduction and radiation. This makes their tightness on barrels less critical; thus they are less prone to thermal expansion problems.
Theoretically, there are no restrictions on the diameter that ceramic band heaters can attain; however, because these heaters utilize ceramic tiles that are available only in specific lengths, the width of these heaters falls within a certain incremental range of sizes.
