Technical Data
   
   

Mica Band Heaters are constructed by winding a nickel-chrome resistance ribbon around mica insulation and encapsulated in a stainless steel sheath. It is then formed to the desired diameter for installation over a dies, barrels and nozzles. They are available in an extensive variety of sizes and shapes with options for holes, notches and cut-outs. A number of threaded terminals, wire lead options and terminal boxes offer great flexibility for field wiring. With temperature capabilities of up to 900°F, these heaters are ideal for plastic processing applications and for anywhere heat is needed on a round or curved surface.

HEATER CONSTRUCTIONS

     
 
One Piece Construction
To be used when a heater can be slipped over a barrel without having to expand the heater extensively.
Diameter:5/8” min; 22” max
Width:5/8” min; 14” max
 
     
     
 
Two Piece or Multiple
Segment
Two piece or multiple segment bands make installation far more convenient and are recommended for applications over a 14” diameter. Spring loaded clamping is recommended.
Diameter:2” min; 44” max
Width:5/8” min; 14” max
 
     
     
 
One Piece Flexible
One-piece flexible heaters are used in applications where expanding the heater is necessary during installation and a multiple segment heater is not practical. These heaters should not be opened more than twice.
 
     
     
 
Square or Rectangular
Mica Heaters can be constructed in square or rectangular shapes if required. Other multi sided shapes are available.
 
     
     
 
Partial Coverage
Band heaters can be constructed to cover only a portion of the barrel or die. These are used where large holes or obstructions prevent the heater from going around the part.
