Ceramic Finned Strip Heaters
Finned strip heaters are extremely efficient and dependable as a heat source for hundreds of industrial and commercial applications. They are used for both forced and natural convection air heating.

Channel Strip Heaters
Channel Strip Heaters have proven to be extremely efficient and dependable as a heat source for surface heating in hundreds of industrial and commercial applications. The rectangular tube gives full surface contact when used in a milled slot to provide maximum heat transfer area.

Mica Insulated Strip Heaters
An economical, practical and reliable heat source capable of providing uniform heat transfer to flat surfaces. Mica insulated strip heaters are used in hundreds of industrial and commercial heating applications.

Temperatures reach as high as 500 degrees F and use the high quality magnesium oxide that is used in tubular elements that allow for effective heat transfer. A fairly inexpensive way of heating surfaces or small areas, strip heaters are an excellent solution to meet any budget.

Strip heaters are composed of a heating element, a protective sleeve or sheath, and mounting hardware. If strip heaters are used as a radiant heater, they have can have fins to maximize surface area and heat transfer to the air. Strip heaters can be clamped or bolted onto objects or solid surface contact heating over large areas and are primarily used in indoor applications.
