Cartridge Heaters

Cartridge Heaters

At KERONE we design manufacture and export wide range of cartridge heaters, these heaters are rigorously designed by keeping the customers process need in mind .

Cartridge heater is a tube-shaped, heavy-duty, industrial heating element used in the process heating, manufactured with best quality raw material and to achieve varied temperature range. Cartridge heaters can be used for the heating of substances such as oil, air, or sugar, but the heaters find their most common application in heating of dies of plastic and packaging industries.

Cartridge heaters are essential parts of many industrial applications because they deliver precise, effective heat in a small package. These cylindrical heating elements provide a high level of accuracy and temperature control, and are intended for insertion into metal blocks or other heating equipment. In sectors where dependable, confined heat sources are essential, such electronics, plastics, packaging, automotive, and aerospace, are used.

Quick and even heat distribution is ensured by the internal resistance wire, which is usually composed of nickel-chromium alloy. The heaters have a number of benefits, one of which is their short reaction time, which allows them to attain optimum temperatures rapidly and maintain constant heating performance. These heaters may be customized to match the demands of individual applications thanks to their range of diameters, lengths, and watt densities.

Cartridge heaters are essential parts of many industrial processes because they offer accurate and dependable heating solutions for a variety of uses. These small, cylindrical heating elements are made to distribute heat evenly to solid or liquid media, maintaining constant temperatures even in harsh settings. Cartridge heaters are used in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, and food processing. They are designed to be as versatile as possible.

A high-resistance wire, usually composed of iron-chromium-aluminum (FeCrAl) or nickel-chromium (Nichrome), is the central component of a cartridge heater. This wire is covered with a sheath that is often made of copper, stainless steel, or, in certain situations, exotic alloys, depending on the particular needs of the application. In addition to shielding the wire from the outdoors, the sheath makes it easier for heat to be transferred effectively to the surrounding medium.

Cartridge heaters have several benefits, one of which is their small size and high power density, which enable them to produce a significant amount of heat in a small area. They are perfect for applications requiring accurate targeted heating or where space is at a premium due to this feature. Their quick heating and cooling capabilities also improve operational effectiveness and decrease downtime, which raises total production.

Cartridge heaters’ adaptable features provide as even further evidence of their adaptability. Many alternatives are available from manufacturers in terms of diameter, length, wattage, voltage, and sheath material, allowing for customized solutions to satisfy particular heating needs. Furthermore, a variety of termination styles—such as threaded studs, leads, or connectors—allow for simple integration into current systems and installation.

Cartridge heaters are used in industrial processes where temperature control is crucial. The capacity to attain accurate temperature gradients guarantees uniformity in production procedures including semiconductor fabrication, plastic molding, and packaging. Moreover, they play a crucial role in applications including fluid heating systems, extrusion dies, and hot stamping where it’s imperative to sustain high temperatures.
