Mica band elements
A mica band element is the ideal solution for heating cylindrical surfaces. These band elements can be used up to a temperature of 300°C and have a maximum surface load of 4 W/cm². The advantages of a mica band element are excellent heat transfer, even heating over the entire surface, long lifespan (if installed correctly), easy installation, high mechanical resistance and no reduction in power after long-term use.
The diameter starts from 60 mm and from a diameter of 500 mm, we recommend having it made in two or more parts. The width starts at 20 mm and runs up to a maximum standard width of 500 mm. A wider design is possible. However, the heat distribution will then be controlled internally by multiple groups, so that even heat transfer is guaranteed. The outer casing is made of high-quality stainless steel (AISI 430) and a high-quality nickel-chrome strip is used internally. The electrical connection can be made with a 3-pole plug housing (230 Volt – 1 phase), connection box with connection block or protective cover with special connection cable. With a width of 100 mm or more, it is possible to equip the mica element with a 3-phase connection.
For correct operation of these mica band elements, you must first check the cylinder for flatness. Mica band elements may only be used on cylinders of the same diameter, not conical or with grooves.
After approximately 30 minutes, during the first heating of the mica band element, the Allen screws should be checked again. The final test ensures that the ohmic resistance, insulation resistance, diameter, width and design of the cable have been checked for accuracy.
