Channel strip heaters are reliable flat heating cells, designed to provide efficient heat to flat surfaces and in space heating applications. The thick rectangular stainless steel housing of these heaters provides a rugged construction suitable for industrial applications.
The housing of a channel strip heater is 0.375” x 1.5” stainless steel rectangular tubing. Coiled Nickel-Chrome wire is placed inside special ceramic tiles. The terminals are secured with ceramic and mica insulators to the sheath. In order to improve their heat transferring capability and to make them vibration-resistant, channel strip heaters are filled with magnesium oxide powder that is compacted through vibration.
Channel strip heaters are made with or without slotted mounting tabs.
