Permaheat Band Heaters
TUTCO’s durable aluminum Permaheat Band heater uses a tubular heating element to provide excellent heat transfer and resistance to contamination. Its aluminum body allows for better conformity to slightly irregular diameters.
The tubular elements are placed in a precisely extruded aluminum base. This aluminum base is normally sectioned to ensure a positive contact with the object being heated. The aluminum body also serves as an excellent transfer medium for rapid heat-up while providing a uniform temperature throughout the entire band.

Permaheats can be used in many different situations, including heating barrels of extrusion and injection molding machines, especially in areas where contamination is possible.
- Injection Molding Machines
- Blown Film
In addition, Permaheat Bands can be modified to meet the demands of virtually any special application. Our engineers can utilize a variety of alternative features and options to customize the heater to your specific needs.
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. […]
