The Permaheat Strip heater is designed for heavy duty applications and is the most rugged strip heater we offer. It uses a tubular heating element to provide excellent heat transfer and resistance to contamination, and its aluminum body allows for better conformity to slightly irregular surfaces.
The tubular elements are placed in a precisely extruded aluminum base. The aluminum body also serves as an excellent transfer medium for rapid heat-up while providing a uniform temperature throughout the entire heater.
