The flexibility of Metallic Heating Elements makes them especially practical for use in tight work areas and have the capacity to generate tremendous amounts of heat. These elements are manufactured in different shapes and sizes depending on the application and can also be manufactured up to 320 inches in length.
When choosing an element material, it is important to know that the thickness has a direct relationship with the elements life since when wire diameter in increased, more alloying element is available per surface area. In order to ensure a longer life of your heater, avoid temperature fluctuations and avoid corrosion from solid substances, fluids and gases.
These heaters are mostly used in industrial furnaces and have proven to be very reliable, rugged and long lasting. When choosing electricity, oil or gas as a common source of heat for your furnace, it is very important to note that electrical furnaces are reliable and trouble free, produce very high quality products and are more environment friendly. Of course it is also important to know that you save money when choosing electrical furnaces since gas or oil furnaces are far more expensive, require a lot more space and cost much more because of pipe installation.
