Flat heaters are thin and flexible heating elements
Flat electric heaters are thin, flexible heating elements, perfect for accurate temperature distribution and targeted heating. They are designed in several different power ratings and shapes.
Flat Heating Elements are being used in cases when flat surface has to be effectively and symmetrically heated. They have winded heating wire and two shifts of insulation. At the optimal heat transition their working temperatures rise up to 450 °C (exceptions up to 600 °C) and surface load up to 5 W/cm².
Micanite flat heaters provide heat by conduction to flat surfaces. In the middle of this device, there is a resistance wire, wound on one mica sheet and insulated on both sides by another one. They are best suited to heat by conduction and can be used for heating flat surfaces or inserted in appropriate slots, to heat metallic masses. We can place them into injection molding machines, extruders, extusion dies, moulds for plastic materials, press moulding plates, vacuum plastic moulding machines, blow film dies, dies and molds, plates for presses, thermoforming, ovens, food service equipment, tanks and trays, process packaging equipment, packing installations and many other applications.
The ceramic flat heaters are made of ceramic elements and resistance wire in flat shape that allows them enough flexibility if necessary. They are suitable for higher surface loads and high-temperature applications or applications where heat storage in necessary.
Generally ceramic elements are more durable and with a longer life expectancy than other flat heaters.
