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. 

Fined Strip Heater

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
