Silicone Rubber Products
Silicone Rubber Fiberglass Insulated Heaters
Silicone Rubber Fiberglass Insulated Flexible Heaters can improve heat transfer and speed warm-ups where controlled heating is required in confined areas. Two circuit designs are available: etched foil or wire wound. Heaters with etched foil designed elements are available where the length or width dimension is less than 12″(305 mm). All other heaters where both the length and the width dimensions exceed 12″ (305 mm) use the wire-wound element design. Effect of power density: gentle warming is best done with 2.5 W/in2. A good all purpose unit is the 5 W/in2. Rapid warm-up and high temperature are achieved with the 10 W/in2; however, temperature must be controlled as the safe maximum operating temperature limit of 450°F (232°C) may be exceeded.
Silicone Rubber Heaters
Environmental factors of many industrial heating applications require a product with the ability to withstand chemicals, moisture and abusive treatment. These same applications also require rapid heat up, steady temperature maintenance, and uniform heat distribution. For applications such as these, OMEGA silicone rubber heating blankets are the best products available.
OMEGA silicone rubber heating blankets are used for freeze protection, process temperature control, melting of solids, temperature heat-up or maintenance. Whether installed in Original Equipment or in the field, our silicone heaters will provide the durability required.
Insulated Flexible Heaters (Polyimide Film)
Insulated heaters (Polyimide Film) are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and wattages. Wattage ratings are 2.5, 5, or 10W/in2 at 115 or 28 V. Polyimide Film offers a high degree of resistance to chemicals, and has excellent outgasing properties in high vacuum environments.
Typical construction consists of an etched foil element of 0.0005″ or 0.0001″ thickness which is encapsulated between two layers of 0.002″ Polyimide Film and 0.001″ FEP adhesive
