Vikas Industrial Heaters provides the ability to withstand higher temperatures . Vikas Strip heaters, often considered component heaters, are a simple way of using surface area to transfer heat effectively. A fairly inexpensive way of heating surfaces or small areas, strip heaters are an excellent solution to meet any budget. If strip heaters are used as a radiant heater, they have can have fins to maximize surface area and heat transfer to the air.
Our Ceramic Strip Heaters are dependable and reliable flat heating elements – designed to provide efficient heat to flat surfaces from common to industrial applications. The seamless sheath design of Ceramic Strip Heaters makes them ‘dimensionally’ stable in milled slots.
Ceramic Strip Heaters are constructed with ceramic insulation that quickly conducts heat from the resistance wire to the sheath resulting in low internal temperatures and long heater life in the most demanding applications. Precise placement of the resistance wire provides uniform sheath temperature across the width and along the entire heated length. This is an extremely rugged construction capable of high temperatures and high watt densities.
The inner construction consists of wound nichrome resistance coil. The inner flexible wire is strung through ceramic insulator pieces. The coils are attached to the screw terminals, or high temperature lead wires, for a positive connection. MgO (magnesium oxide) is used to fill and pack open areas surrounding the coils. The MgO material helps increase the elements thermal conductivity and dielectric strength.
