Customized ribbed heating elements

Electrical ribbed heaters are designed for heating air or non-corrosive gas by natural or forced convection

The design is based on customer process conditions : fluid to heat (type and properties), in/out temperature, pressure, heat exchange conditions (stagnant or flowing), and environment conditions (ATEX or not, onshore or offshore, etc.).

Ribbed heaters are the best solution for convection air heating in stoves, industrial ovens, drying cabinets & facilities or air-conditioning equipement.

Reliability and robustness are key drivers for our engineers.

  1. Connection terminals
  2. Tube
  3. Insulation : magnesia oxyde (Mg O), to secure optimized heat transfer and electrical insulation.
  4. Resistance wire: Made of Nickel Chrome 80/20, it is the active part of the heating element (Joule effect)
  5. Cold length
  6. Sealing material: Keeps out external moisture. Different types (silicon, resins, cement) are used depending on the industrial application, the external medium and temperature
  7. Output insulation: Made of steatite ou corundum, it provides dielectric insulation (creepage distance, distance in the air).
