Cartridge heaters are cylindrical electrical heating elements installed in limited spaces in applications requiring high concentration of heat. Protected with a stainless steel sheath, the watt density can reach up to 320 watts per sq. in. and operating temperatures can go up to 1400° F.
These types of heaters are widely used for heating solids such as injection press, heating plates and other various tools or to heat liquids and gas. Cartridge heaters are used in the a wide variety of industries such as in the plastic processing and rubber parts, car industry, food processing industry and are commonly used in the chemical, electronics, medical equipment and nuclear industries.
Cartridge heaters can be manufactured in 3 main technologies, high-density (CCHC), medium range (CCMC) or low-density (CCBC) depending on the application, dimension and watt density requirements. For specific applications such as radiators and towel dryers there are double insulated cartridge heaters. Self-regulated cartridges are ideal for defrosting and evaporators and bolt heaters are typically used for mechanical assemblies.
