Air Cooled Ceramic Band Heaters

Air Cooled Ceramic Heater Assembly For Extruder Barrels

aThis new super-efficient and economical air cooled ceramic heater bands are designed for use on extrusion machinery or on any heat/cool operation.

The new heater bands feature 63% open perforated metal sheath, which assures maximum surface area exposure. They also provide the user with a more economical operation, via a rapid heat-up and cool-down feature. Their "Black Star" coating further increases efficiency. Advantages of air cooled vs. Liquid cooled operation include: lower cost, replaceable heaters, low maintenance, no leak problems, and close temperature control.

The new air cooled ceramic heater bands are available in various sizes to either accommodate new designs or to replace less efficient, more expensive cast aluminum heaters.
