Aluminum band heaters use a tubular heating element to provide excellent heat transfer and resistance to contamination. Its aluminum body allows for better conformity to slightly irregular diameters.
The tubular elements are placed in a precisely extruded aluminum base. This aluminum base is normally sectioned to ensure a positive contact with the object being heated. The aluminum body also serves as an excellent transfer medium for rapid heat-up while providing a uniform temperature throughout the entire band.
Some applications require both heating and cooling. With the advent of exothermic materials and heat generated by screw rotation, our aluminum band heater was adapted to provide both heating and cooling functions. Cooling tubes are placed in proximity to the heating elements to produce the Heat/Cool band. Due to its low mass, it can be cooled relatively quickly.
