Ceramic band heaters are designed with spirally wound inner resistance coils evenly threaded through interlocking insulated ceramic “tiles”. This combined assembly of the Ceramic Band Heater offers a flexible heating system that yields efficient transmission of conduction and radiated heat.
Band heaters are ring-shaped heating devices that clamp around a cylindrical element. Heat transfer from band heaters occurs via the conductive method. Some products clamp around the inner diameter of a pipe. Typically, band heaters are quipped with ceramic or mineral insulation to reduce heat loss to the environment.
