Standard Crankcase Heaters

TUTCO's Standard Crankcase Heaters are built with a continuous sheath construction, providing full contact with the HVAC compressor housing, facilitating heat transfer. With a continuous sheath comes more mass, which allows the heater to operate in open air. They comes in three varieties: single pass (standard design), double pass (for those high wattage applications), and narrow double pass (for those applications where space is limited).
