Band Heaters are used to heat
(mostly) cylindrical surfaces and are
available in several construction styles
to perform under different operating
environments.

Band Heater Types and Specifications

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.
