Mica Band insulated heaters are widely used on operations involving heating of cylindrical surfaces and are manufactured in a full range of standard construction variations, physical dimensions, electrical ratings, and a complete arrangement of screw terminals and lead terminations.
The HT Band offers a high temp alternative to Mica bands without the higher cost of mineral insulated bands. If you are experiencing high failure rate of your Mica Bands due to the need for the process to have a high Watt Density this may be an alternative worth exploring. Please give us your specs and let us tell you if this is a viable option.
We carry the former Watlow Thin Band, with or without the unique quick clamp feature. Use comment field below to specify Thin Band part number and clamp style.
The Mineral Insulated Band is the answer for applications that require high watt densities (W/in2) and/or high operating temperatures. Mineral Insulated Band heaters can handle temperatures up to 1400°F (760°C) and watt densities up to 150W/in2 (23.25W/cm2) for Nozzle Band Heaters and 80W/in2 (12.4W/cm2) for Barrel Band Heaters.
Ceramic Band Heaters are manufactured in a full range of standard construction variations, physical dimensions, electrical ratings, and a complete arrangement of screw terminals and lead terminations.
Maxiband heaters (aluminum channel) are manufactured in five standard widths: 3/4", 1-1/2", 2-1/2", 3", and 4". They are available in a full range of standard diameters; construction variations for heating only, heat and cool, and cooling only; electrical ratings and a complete arrangement of various types of terminations to accommodate your specific application.
There are many other variety of band style heaters that we offer, including cast-in heaters, coil heaters for many applications as well as many others.
