Finned Strip Heaters
Steel Fins Maximize Heat Intensity and Transfer
Finned strip heaters are composed of a heating element, a protective sleeve or sheath, and mounting hardware along with steel fins that are used to extend surface area.
Type 304 Stainless Steel sheath provides excellent physical strength and resistance to high temperatures of up to 1200°F (650°C) as well as chemical corrosion.
Helically wound resistance wire coil made from the nickel-chrome wire is evenly stretched and precisely strung through the internal ceramic insulator, providing uniform heat. Magnesium oxide grain is used to increase thermal conductivity and dielectric strength and to fill all remaining space inside and around the ceramic insulator.
features and benefits
Available lengths from 5 1⁄2 to 48 in. (140 to 1220 mm)
Stainless steel sheath promotes chemical resistance and long life
Nickel-plated steel fins conduct heat more efficiently into the air
Welded post terminals produce strong trouble-free connections
Ideal for mounting across air streams within forced air ducts
