The Ultima Band heater is one of the most rugged products on the market. Its tubular heating element enables the Ultima to provide uniform heat at medium to high temperatures while resisting contamination, corrosion and vibration.
Ultima band heaters are constructed of a heavy-duty stainless steel sheath with welded stainless steel end caps. This stainless steel structure eliminates distortion and deformation problems that may occur with other bands at higher temperatures.
