Cartridge heaters are capable of operating at temperatures of up to 760°C and achieving watt densities of up to 260 watts per square centimeter. Available from stock or custom manufactured to your individual application need, they are available in many different imperial and metric diameters and lengths with many different style terminations, wattage and voltage ratings.
In the plastics industry cartridge heaters are used in hot runners in order to temper thermoplasts during injection moulding processes. Other areas of applications include food processing, heating gases and liquids, sealing bags, aerospace and more.
