HT Flex Band Heaters
The HTFlex Band™ from TUTCO combines high temperature performance with an innovative, easy to install design that sets new industry standards for band heater reliability and productivity.
The key innovation is flexibility – HTFlex Band’s one-piece design is engineered to flex over the barrel diameters. Unlike conventional rigid designs, the HTFlex Band allows for installation and removal from any point along the barrel without the need to remove or even disturb other heaters and equipment mounted to the barrel. Compared to conventional two-piece bands, TUTCO’s HTFlex Band eliminates labor-intensive assembly including the wiring of multiple terminations.

HT Flex Band Heaters can be modified to meet the demands of virtually any special application.
Thermodynamics, specifically heat transfer, is used throughout our daily lives, but not always thought of. A common practice of cooking breakfast would be one simple example. You place one type of media, your frying pan, onto a hot surface and apply the “heat”, which is your source of energy, to cook the food. The heat […]
Mica is a superb insulating material that is versatile and cost-effective for heater design. At TUTCO-Farnam the majority of our custom-designed heaters use mica board machined to meet the customer’s specifications. A variety of types and thicknesses of mica are available and are selected for use based on the parameters required. Design variations using mica […]
When installing a band heater, it is important that it be well seated on a clean smooth surface and be tightened so that good heat transfer occurs between the heater and the body being heated. The more circular the object to be heated is, so much the bet- ter. Conductive heat transfer is the best […]
Does continuous operation shorten heater element life? It’s a common question, and frankly, the answer is yes. All heating wire will eventually fail over time, but it is possible to improve the life of the heater by following these recommendations. All heater types require a balance of cooling and voltage control to avoid overshoot failures. […]
