Tanks requiring cartridge heater can utilize indirect heating with band heaters or, they may use direct heating that typically uses some type of immersion heating.
WATTCO Band heaters can be obtained from several kinds of dimension, wattage, voltages and material. Mica band heaters are an economical industrial heating solution that surrounds pipes and tubes which require external indirect heating. Pipe heating, drum heating, barrel heating normally used for oils, lubricants or some other circular applications. Band heaters use electric heating elements (NiCr wire) to heat-within the external surface of drums or pipes for any gradual heat transfer. Band heating is undoubtedly an indirect kind of industrial heating and offers safety when heating volatile and explosive substances and also pipes or containers that cannot otherwise be heated using direct heating methods. Industrial band heaters can be done with NEMA 1 terminal boxes or NEMA 4 moisture resistant terminal boxes that protect terminations and have the choice of a thermostat or thermocouple digital temperature controllers to aid control and regulate an applied heat. Insulation is likewise needed to help direct the temperature for your application rather than experience heat loss, and slow heat-up time.
Band heaters from WATTCO are a fantastic solution for top watt densities and high operating temperature applications, especially for the plastics industry. The various types of band heaters offered by WATTCO include mica insulated band heaters and ceramic band heaters. For direct heating, our immersion heaters section is suggested as being a more efficient method for heating your liquids. Direct heating uses flanged heaters, screw plug heaters, across the side heaters as well as pipe heaters.
Straps are tightly clamped around the cylinder’s surface and distribute the drawing force uniformly throughout the band heater. This force is moved to the inside windings and improves heat transfer by offering effective surface contact and eliminating air gaps. Same features because the independent strap. The very best sheet usheatc6605 made into a strap by placing barrel nut fasteners on either side in the gap. Barrel nuts are used for holes and cutouts, as an option to independent straps
Design is comparable to that relating to the built-in barrel nut. Manufactured from an impartial strap fastener that may be spot welded to the top level sheet on either side in the gap. This sort of clamping mechanism is commonly used to fit a heated section underneath the fastener. One of the most economical clamping mechanism. Created for cartridge heater with thermocouple. Basic design for only a little space over the heater. Made up of clamp slides (wedge shape) about the lips in the heater on either side in the gap. Standard height in between the inner diameter as well as the highest reason for the wedge lock is 5/16”. Latch and clamp releases with a flip of thumb. Inside the fastened position, the spring-loaded ¼-20 bolt absorbs the thermal expansion.
