Ultra Thin Ceramic Band Heaters

3/8" Thick, 3/16" thermal insulation, up to 65 watts/sq. in.

High performance heater band for processing high temperature engineering resins. The first improvement in ceramic heaters since the introduction of"Insulation Plus"TM in 1975. "Ultra-Thin" heater bands have the same basic construction as our standardceramic heaters except they are much thinner and have a high ratio of thermal to electrical insulation. The thin ceramic insulation’ used results in a lower mass construction, which improves response to control and minimizes temperature lag and overshoot.

The backside thermal insulation is highly efficient and results in minimal heat loss and lower sheath temperature. The "Ultra-Thin" has averaged 100 deg. F lower sheath temperature when tested against other high temperature heaters at 600 deg. F cylinder temperatures. The "Ultra-Thin" without thermal insulation and with a perforated sheath is ideally suited for air cooled systems.

"Ultra-Thin" heaters are constructed of all high temperature materials. The heater element itself is computer designed for maximum wire size which results in a long service life. Developed primarily for high temperature, high watt density plastic processing machinery, this premium performance heater can be used in many other applications.
