Band Heaters

What Band Heaters Are Used For

Band heaters are used for a variety of purposes in electrical applications. Band heater elements usually consist of mica elements which have very good high temperature resistance.

Band heaters can be found in appliances such as hair dryers, toasters, ovens, and space heaters. Band Heaters are made by applying insulation that is resistant to the temperatures and then winding a metal wire around that insulator several times. Band heaters are generally made of nickel alloy wires and they may be either coiled or straight. Band heaters usually have an aluminum coating with this technology hence the elements do not need to be provided with oiling as with cartridge heaters. Band heater elements can be found in household appliances, industrial toasters, ovens, heating units.

Band heaters are mainly used though in industrial applications where the process may demand a high degree of accuracy and control. Band Heaters usually have a surface temperature about half that of their metallic core. Band Heaters usually come in two different types: Mica Band Heaters and Cartridge Heater Band

Heaters can be made from coiled nickel alloy wires that are clad with aluminum. Band heaters use mica insulation because it can withstand high temperatures and has good dielectric properties. Mica Band Heaters usually come in widths of 4 inches to 24 inches, lengths up to 200 feet, and powers ranging from 13 kW to 1400 kW. Band heaters must be provided with oiling for cleanliness and long life. Band heaters are often used in ovens for baking, furnaces, heating units, toasters, etc. Band heater elements can be used for both direct and indirect heating of objects. Band Heaters are made by winding nickel alloy wires with aluminum coating around ceramic or mica insulators form the shape of a closed loop and then the entire encased winding is placed within a protective tubing. Band heaters usually have an aluminum or nickel-aluminum coating for corrosion resistance and durability.
