Selecting the Right Industrial Heating Element

To select the right heating element, you need to have the right information. There are some key questions you must ask in order to discover this information. These include:

  • What is the target operating temperature?
  • Where is the sensor location?
  • What environment is the application in? (Is it humid? Is there heavy heater movement? Are the machines washed down?)
  • What maximum temperature is required for the heating element to withstand?
  • Do the lead wires need to come out of the heater in a certain direction?

The answers to these questions will help you select the proper heating element, and having these answers in-hand can help expedite the process of obtaining the best heating element for your application when you contact an industrial heating elements manufacturer.

The right heating element can determine the quality and speed of the process or product in which the industrial heater is used, in addition to lowering the energy usage of the heating operation, and the cost of producing the product.
