Cartridge Heaters & Tool Heating

Info & Product Examples

Cartridge Heaters can, to a limited space, give very high power. Thanks to the design the heat is quickly distributed over the whole surface mantle of the element. The element can withstand high demands of impact resistance and vibration security. Fields of application for cartridge heaters are primarily tool heating within e.g. plastic -, rubber -, wood -, and paper industry, foundries, medicin technical and laboratory heating of liquids.

Nozzle Elements are produced with high precision and with high surface loading to meet the high demands of quick and safe heating. During the manufacturing process the element is subject to very high pressure to reach high insulation resistance, good heat transmission without internal voids in the element and a very smooth surface for optional and uniform heat transmission from the total surface of the element. The element is absolutely tight to avoid that for instance melted plastic, oil or gas can leak in.

Ring and Band Elements are generally produced and supplied to according to customer specification. Examples application areas are: Injection moulding machines-extruders, containers, tanks, moulds, tools, etc. The design of these units is typically either Micanite or Ceramic with plate casing.
