The ceramic fiber heater product
line offers some of the highest temperature heating element capabilities
in the Watlow family of heaters. Ceramic fiber heaters are made
by integrating an iron-chrome-aluminum (ICA) heating element and
ceramic fiber insulation for a new concept in application problem
solving..." heated insulation!"
Heating units constructed of ceramic fiber insulation isolate
the heating chamber from the outside. Ceramic fiber heaters are
extremely low mass, high insulation value units with self-supported
heating elements. They're versatile for many applications that
can benefit from the convenience of heating element and insulation
in one package.
Ceramic fiber is an insulation made of an alumina-silica composition,
held together by an inorganic binder. It's commonly used as a
refractory material. Its lightweight, low-density properties make
it ideally suited for high temperature applications requiring
low thermal mass.
