Metallic Strip Elements

Metallic strip elements are manufactured from a range of resistance heating alloys chosen based on application requirements

Product Description

Metallic strip elements are manufactured from a range of resistance heating alloys chosen based on application requirements such as power, temperature, operating atmosphere, and mechanical requirements.

These heating elements are typically suited where the power requirements exceed those achievable by metallic wire elements within the same space constraints.

* The typical application temperature when operating in ordinary dry air. The maximum heating element temperature is even higher. The maximum temperature is also dependent on the alloy and strip thickness chosen.

** Maximum power is not possible for every voltage and connection configuration. Having a suitable supply voltage and connection configuration may be necessary to achieve maximum power.
