Tanks requiring cartridge heaters can utilize indirect heating with band heaters or, they may use direct heating that typically uses some type of immersion heating.
WATTCO Band heaters may be found in various kinds of dimension, wattage, voltages and material. Mica band heaters are an affordable industrial heating solution that surrounds pipes and tubes which require external indirect heating. Pipe heating, drum heating, barrel heating normally utilized for oils, lubricants or other circular applications. Band heaters use electric heating elements (NiCr wire) to heat-the external surface of drums or pipes for any gradual heat transfer. Band heating is definitely an indirect method of industrial heating and offers safety when heating volatile and explosive substances as well as pipes or containers that cannot otherwise be heated using direct heating methods. Industrial band heaters can be created with NEMA 1 terminal boxes or NEMA 4 moisture resistant terminal boxes that protect terminations and possess the choice of a thermostat or thermocouple digital temperature controllers to help you control and regulate an applied heat. Insulation is additionally necessary to help direct the warmth for your application as an alternative to experience heat loss, and slow heat-up time.
Band heaters from WATTCO are the ideal solution for top watt densities and high operating temperature applications, specifically the plastics industry. The various types of mica heater bands offered at WATTCO include mica insulated band heaters and ceramic band heaters. For direct heating, our immersion heaters section is suggested being a better method for heating your liquids. Direct heating uses flanged heaters, screw plug heaters, within the side heaters as well as pipe heaters.
Straps are tightly clamped round the cylinder’s surface and distribute the drawing force uniformly around the band heater. This force is moved to the interior windings and improves heat transfer by supplying effective surface contact and eliminating air gaps. Same features because the independent strap. The top sheet usheatc6605 made into a strap by placing barrel nut fasteners on each side from the gap. Barrel nuts are used for holes and cutouts, as an option to independent straps
Design is just like that relating to the built in barrel nut. Manufactured from a completely independent strap fastener which is spot welded to the top sheet on each side of your gap. This type of clamping mechanism can be used to allow for a heated section below the fastener. The most economical clamping mechanism. Made for thermocouplers. Basic design for only a little space higher than the heater. Made from clamp slides (wedge shape) on the lips of your heater on both sides of your gap. Standard height in between the inner diameter as well as the highest point of the wedge lock is 5/16”. Latch and clamp releases by using a flip of thumb. Inside the fastened position, the spring-loaded ¼-20 bolt absorbs the thermal expansion.
