Features

Mica plate heaters are manufactured custom made at our plant since 50 years and offer excellent thermal conductivity. Mica plate heaters with pressure plates are repairable.

  • Special configurations available : Triangular, trapezoidal, U-shaped, plates, etc.
  • Made from aluminized steel (ensuring better heat transfer) or from stainless steel
  • Standard 3/16’’ thickness
  • Pressure plates available : 1/8', 1/4' or 1/2' (to avoid plate rippling with use)
  • Maximum operating temperature of 600 F
  • Even heat (more density at the ends if needed)
  • Monophased or three-phased
  • Double voltage  if requested
  • Also available with grounding and built-in thermocouple
  • With fold-over ends to avoid risk of contamination
  • Special cold areas
  • Thermocouple holes
  • Notches
  • Mounting holes
  • Irregular shaped holes
Applications
  • Flat surface parts heating
  • Food cooking and hot food preservation
  • Vulcanization

Tips
  1. The heated area has to be clean with no residue and have a flat surface.
  2. It is very important that the strip heater is installed in "sandwich" between 2 pressure strips or strongly tightened with a mounting screw to avoid the creation of air pockets between the strip heater and the pressure strips insure a better heat transmission Volton manufactures on demand those strips with the thickness you wish in order to incorporate them to your strip heaters.
  3. Verify the thickness of the strip heater on the heated area after the first heat and tighten again if needed.
