Mica Heaters – Manufacturing Prerequisites to Contemplate When Purchasing The Heaters Band.

We manufacture thermocouples for General Application purposes. Our cartridge heaters are used primarily through the Plastics Industry. Thermocouples are sensors, or temperature measuring devices, would be the most often convenient and versatile tool for measuring temperature. Thermocouples function to transform units of heat into useable engineering units that work as input signals for process controllers and recorders. Thermocouples are suitable to use in temperature ranges from (-200 to 2316) °C [-328 to 4200] °F.

Thermocouple construction may be the pairing of two dissimilar Thermocouple Diagramedmetals or alloys (commonly available as wire) which can be welded together at one end to make the thermocouple Junction. This is basically the heating or cooling of the two metals that generate a voltage that may be correlated to the temperature. More basically, thermocouples are the construction of wires and sheath (tubing) components. Our industry standard Thermocouples (J,K, E, T) have Tube and Wire construction, while some variations might include MgO insulation. See our Thermocouple Options

Thermocouple Applications:

Food processing equipment; de-icing; Plating baths; Medical equipment; Industrial processing; Pipe tracing control; Packaging equipment; Industrial heat treating; Refrigeration temperature control; Oven temperature control; and Liquid temperature measurement.


The band heater can withstand temperatures approximately 900?F (480?C) for continuous operation.


Type E:

This calibration is best suited for temperatures approximately 1650?F (900 ?C) inside a vacuum, inert, mild oxidizing or reducing atmosphere. The thermocouple should outlive other types – when they are not in contact with corrosion, and once it has the very best EMF output per level of other standardly used thermocouples.

Type J:

This design is the second most popular of your calibration types. It will be the suitable choice for general purposes where moisture is not found in its surrounding atmosphere.

Type K:

These thermocouplers are the most common calibration for offering the widest operating range. They function well in most applications as they are primarily nickel based – aiding in corrosion resistance. This thermocouple can be used as applications around 2300?F (1260 ?C).

Type T:

This sort proves superior performance due to its compatibility in various applications in low and cryogenic temperatures. And it is the best option for oxidizing or reducing atmospheres. The application usheatc6605 a protection tube is usually recommended to extend the life span of the thermocouple. The recommended operating range for this type is -330? to 660?F (-200? to 350?C) it can be used around -452?F (-269?C).


The flexible wire is insulated, and woven with fiberglass or high temperature resins. Steel wire braid and flexible armor or common sheathing (tubing) are requested abrasion protection of the inner sensing junction. Common mounting options are: springs, ring terminals, specialty bolts, and pipe style clamps and shims.


Resistance can’t confirm the alloy meets correct thermoelectric specifications, nevertheless it will check out additional unfavorable characteristics including: opens, poor welds, or wire corrosion. Therefore, be sure you measure resistance away from application to guarantee EMF output won’t conflict using the resistance meter.
