Acrolab Pre-Heat Station Showing Tubular & Coil Heaters
Acrolab Resistive Heaters
These type of heaters are typically used for heated tooling or augmenting heat in molds. Cartridge heaters can withstand sheath temperatures of up to 1500°F. There are a variety of builds and styles available from 90° exits, distributed wattage, cold zones, to multi-zone control. Check with our engineers to find the right build for your application.
Split Heaters can operate at temperatures over 1600°F. This style of heater is best utilized in high temperature applications where a standard cartridge heater cannot operate properly. The unique split design allows a user to remove the heater with ease. Split Heaters can be manufactured with distributed wattage for more even heat distribution if required.
Band heaters can be manufactured in almost any standard width and diameter. They are utilized in applications of temperatures up to 1400°F. There are 3 main types of band heaters and our engineers can help you determine which is the best fit for your situation and application.
Plate & Strip Heaters
Strip or Plate heaters can be manufactured in almost any standard width and length. They are utilized in applications of temperatures up to 1400°F. There are 3 main types of plate/strip heaters:
- Mica Heaters are cost-effective but lack the ability to have high wattage.
- Mineral Heaters can achieve very high wattages but do cost more than mica heaters.
- Ceramic Style Heaters are utilized more for higher temperature applications.
Each type has their best fit situation and application.
This style of heater can be manufactured to almost any custom shape you require. They are typically round in cross-section and can handle application temperatures of up to 1400°F. Tubular heaters can operate in free air, inside a groove, mounting to a surface, or cast into metal. There are a number of different termination styles that can be used to meet your specific application.
Silicone Rubber Heaters
Silicone heaters can be manufactured to suit almost any flat geometry and can accommodate hole and cut outs. They can be used in applications of up to 450°F. This type of heater is moisture and chemical resistant and if required, an adhesive backing can be applied for ease of installation.
This style of heater can be manufactured to almost any shape you require. They are typically rectangular in cross-section and can handle application temperatures of up to 1500°F. Coil heaters can operate in free air, inside a groove, mounting to a surface, or mount over top of a nozzle. There are a number of different termination styles that can be used to meet your specific application.
Acrolab barrel heaters are used to pre-heat liquids in drums or pails to make them less viscous. They are suitable heat sources when heat is required to handle liquids during pouring, dipping, coating or mixing operations. Barrel heaters are made to brace a drum externally and they are easily installed and removed when needed.
