Our product range comtains a wide range of Temperature Sensors, Catalyst Bed Heater, Metal Sheathed Thruster Heaters, Flexible Heaters and Silicone Rubber Heaters
Metal sheathed, high temperature heaters provide uniform heat with excellent heat transfer and electrical insulation in high temperature and high vibration applications. Diameter tolerances to .0008" maximize surface contact and increase service life...available in S.A.E.and Metric sizes. Devices have been custom designed as glowplug heaters used to flash-off hydrogen build-up in industrial atmospheres and radial finned heatersensor elements engineered to eliminate the need for a discreet sensor in the control loop. By judicious selection of conductor material, we are able to develop high voltagelow wattage and low voltagehigh wattage devices without compromising heater performance.
Highly accurate and stable wire wound Platinum Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTD) furnish outstanding range, linearity, and accuracy. Over 1, 000 Qualified Sensor Configurations Available Existing designs can bemodified to meet your specific requirement. Sensor selection and mounting recommendations are available to ensure optimum performance. Sensors are available with complete calibration and data processing in any temperature increment (calibration is traceable to the National Bureau of Standards). DIN and reference grade curves are available. Wire round RTDs provide interchangeability and self-heating uniformity characteristics far superior to thin film devices. Precise wire tension control during winding, coupled with subsequent high temperature annealing, results in excellent repeatability and low hysteresis. Also, the resistance vs. temperature relationship is extremely accurate. Exposed Elements and Surface Sensors Thin and flexible Kapton surface sensors feature low thermal mass for accurate surface measurement without reference points or compensation circuits. Sensors can be mounted on flat or curved surfaces, or where other sensors are too large, or too rigid. For added convenience, Kapton surface sensors are available with factory applied pressure sensitive adhesive. Surface sensors can be mounted within devices such as multi-layer boards and encapsulated modules. Thermocouples, available in any ISA conductor combination, feature fast response, point sensing, and high temperature capability in a small package. Easy to use thermocouples provide rugged temperature sensing over a wide operating range, minimize cost, and simplify recording instrumentation interface. Standard and custom accuracies are available with grounded and ungrounded junctions. Thermistors can be configured as the sensing element in any of our envelopes to monitor the temperature of small areas with high base resistance and a very high signal strength.
Thruster heatersensor assemblies for monopropellant hydrazine thrusters are developed with proven manufacturing techniques that yield extremely cost-effective designs. Our proven manufacturing techniques yield extremely efficient and cost-effective designs that can be modified at minimal expense. These highly reliable assemblies feature low element watt density that significantly extends element life even during repeated temperature cycling. Hermetically sealed housings are available in heat resistant inconel or waspalloy and can be configured in a wide range of shapes to match thruster configuration. Platinum RTD's can be integrated for temperature control.
Flexible heaters furnish fast warm-up, precise heat, and long life in virtually any shape, size, and wattage. Flexible Kapton heaters provide highly efficient heat transfer over a wide temperature range. The thin, lightweight, and flexible design provides superior surface conformance.. extending heater life by minimizing the thermal gradient between resistive element and heat sink. In addition, flexible heaters feature low outgassing, tear resistance, and dimensional stability. Limitless Designs Flexible heaters are available with integral RTD's, thermocouples, or thermistors for optimum response time and gradient control. Sensors can be laminated inside a heater, adhered to the heater surface, or installed at specific locations within the system to prevent overshoot and heat fluctuations. Factory Bonding Proper heat-to-part installation is critical to achieving a tight bond, superior performance, and high reliability. For optimum heater performance and cost effectiveness, we can factory mount a heater to your thermal subassembly. You can supply the heat sinks or have us fabricate them to your specification, giving you a guaranteed bond, superior reliability, and the benefit of our extensive experience in bonding techniques. Contact us today for an innovative and custom solution for your heater needs.
Durable and precise silicone rubber heaters are available in a virtually unlimited range of configurations and geometry's. Silicone rubber heaters provide highly efficient heat transfer over a wide temperature range. Lightweight and flexible, the heaters provide superior surface conformance that extends heater life by minimizing the gradient between resistive element and heat sink. In addition, silicone rubber heaters are dimensionally stable and tear and chemical resistant. Available in a virtually unlimited range of configurations and geometry's, silicone rubber heaters can be designed with multiple heating, shielding and power levels. Thermostats can be incorporated in a heater for optimum response time and gradient control. Also, sensors can be laminated inside a heater, adhered to the heater surface, or installed at specific locations within the system to prevent overtemperature. Factory Installation Proper heater-to-part installation is critical in achieving a tight bond, superior performance, and high reliability. For optimum heater performance and cost effectiveness, we can vulcanize a heater to your thermal subassembly. You can supply the heat sinks or have us fabricate them to your specification...giving you a guaranteed bond, superior reliability, and the benefit of our extensive experience in bonding techniques.
