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. […]
