MI Band Heaters
Mineral insulated heater assembly is formed under pressure to a precise diameter with a thin low-
mass cross section assuring fast heat-up rates and reduced cycle times.

PERFORMANCE RATINGS
Max. Sheath Temperature: 1400°F (760°C)
Nom. Watt Density:
Nozzle Bands – under 3” dia.: 30-100 W/in² (4.7-15.5 W/cm²)
Barrel Bands – 3” & greater in dia.: 20-70 W/in² (3.1-10.9 W/cm²)
Max. Watt Density: Dependent on application.


Mica Band Heaters
A mica insulated heater incorporating a low thermal expansion alloy outer sheath that is used as a
uniquely designed built-in strap.

PERFORMANCE RATINGS
Max. Sheath Temperature: 900°F (482°C)
Nom. Watt Density:
Nozzle Bands – under 3” dia.: 20-55 W/in² (3-8.6 W/cm²)
Barrel Bands – 3” & greater in dia.: 20-45 W/in² (3-7 W/cm²)
Max. Watt Density: Dependent on application.


Maxiband® Heaters
The channels in the specially designed extruded aluminum track have been precisely sized to
accept a .315 diameter tubular heating element, and provide an excellent heat sink for rapid heat
transfer and good temperature uniformity.

PERFORMANCE RATINGS
Max. Temperature: 650°F (350°C)
Nom. Watt Density: 25-35 W/in² (3.8 – 5.4 W/cm²)
Max. Watt Density: Dependent on application.


Ceramic Band Heaters
Ceramic Band Heaters consist of a helically wound resistance coil made from nickel-chrome wire
precisely strung through specially designed ceramic insulating bricks, forming a flexible heating
mat.

PERFORMANCE RATINGS
Max. Sheath Temperature: 1400°F (760°C)
Nom. Watt Density: 20-45 W/in² (3-7 W/cm²)
Max. Watt Density: Dependent on application.


Tubular Band Heaters
Tubular Band Heaters are recommended for heating applications where premature nozzle band
heater burn-out on plastic injection molding machines is a constant problem due to contamination
from plastic overflow or other contaminants.

PERFORMANCE RATINGS
Max. Sheath Temperature: 1000°F (540°C)
Nom. Watt Density: 40 W/in² (6.2 W/cm²)
Max. Watt Density: Dependent on application.
