Flexible heaters from Watlow are thin, bendable and shaped to fit almost any type of equipment. Heat can be applied to the most complex shapes, geometries, curves and pipes conceivable without sacrificing efficiency or dependability.
Excellent heat transfer results from the heater’s thin design and direct bonding to an application. Flexible heaters provide fast heat-up and cool-down rates, uniform heat distribution and high watt densities.
Many applications that require a fixed temperature set point incorporate a mechanical thermostat for thermal control. Thermostats have proven, however, to be inadequate for many applications due to their inability to provide optimum temperature controller and meet long-term reliability requirements, such as a 100,000 cycle rating.
The SERIES EGH® thermal solution includes a compact temperature control, thermocouple sensor and power switching device integrated with the heater’s power cord. The SERIES EHG solution reduces system costs and increases reliability while providing substantially longer life than a conventional thermostat.
The small thermocouple mass provides superior response to changes in process temperature enabling higher watt density silicone rubber heater designs. The integrated, custom set point temperature controller offers a long life span and allows a thermal system design that delivers faster heat up rates and improved accuracy. The SERIES EHG System has been tested to over four million cycles at rated amperage. Depending on the application, Watlow’s power switching design can last up to 40 times longer than a conventional thermostat.
