Strip heaters, often known as component heaters, are a simple way of using surface area to transfer heat effectively. Steel strip heaters are an excellent industrial heating product and can be easily controlled by using a temperature controller such as a mechanical thermostat or a cost effective bimetal thermostats that can be installed on the surface you are heating. Mounting holes are useful to mount the process heaters securely on almost any surface 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 control panel is easily adaptable to this configuration. Temperatures reach as high as degrees F and use the high quality magnesium oxide that is used in tubular elements that allow for effective heat transfer. A fairly inexpensive way of heating surfaces or small areas, strip heaters are an excellent solution to meet any budget.
Electric Radiant Strip Heaters Indoor & Outdoor - HEATSTRIP®
Strip heaters are used principally for convection-type air heating and clamp-on installations. When selecting strip heaters for either, two important factors must be considered: The proper sheath material for resisting any rusting and oxidizing inherent in the process or environment and for withstanding the sheath temperature required. Standard sheath materials are rust resisting iron, chrome steel and Incoloy NS Series only. Stainless steel and Monel sheaths are available at an additional charge. Maximum work and sheath temperatures are below.
