Introduction | Tubular | Finned | Terminals | Fittings | Brackets

 

Tubular Elements are the most versatile, dependable and rugged of any heat generation device. These qualities make it an ideal heat source for many applications. ASB uses precision wound 80-20 nickel-chrome wire to deliver an even heat distribution to the element sheath. High purity, grade A magnesium oxide is used as the internal insulation to insure the best thermal transfer and insulation resistance. A variety of electrical terminations, mounting fittings and brackets, along with the wide array of bending options, allow for easy integration into any heating system.

BENDING

     
 
Bending
Both Finned and un-Finned tubular elements can be bent to one of our many standard configurations. We can also bend to your specifications. ASB specializes in bending complex manifold/mould heaters from customer supplied drawings.
 
     


ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS

     
 
Terminals
A variety of Threaded Stud terminals, Tab terminals, Push On connectors and wire lead options are offered to meet your application requirements.
 
     


MOUNTING FITTINGS

     
 
Fittings
Welded and Brazed Fittings are supplied for heaters immersed in liquids. Crimped-On fittings are typically used for air or gas applications. Fittings are offered in Brass, Steel and Stainless Steel. Custom fittings are available and are subject to quantity minimums.
 
     


MOUNTING BRACKETS

     
 
Brackets
Mounting Brackets are available in a variety of materials, sizes and configurations. They can be supplied with or without gaskets. These are typically custom made to match your mounting requirements, but we do offer some standard designs.
 
     


FINNED ELEMENTS

     
 
Finned Elements

Finned Tubular Heaters are used for heating air and other gases. We offer a standard carbon steel construction and a high temperature/ corrosion resistant stainless steel construction. As with regular tubular elements, they can be bent to a number of shapes and are available with fittings and mounting brackets as required.
