Scarlet Furnace Heating elements & Heater Coils
The flexibility of Metallic Heating Elements makes them especially practical for use in tight work areas and have the capacity to generate tremendous amounts of heat. These elements are manufactured in different shapes and
sizes depending on the application and can also be manufactured up to 320 inches in length. When choosing an element material, it is important to know that the thickness has a direct relationship with the elements life since
when wire diameter in increased, more alloying element is available per surface area. In order to ensure a longer life of your heater, avoid temperature fluctuations and avoid corrosion from solid substances, fluids and gases.
These heaters are mostly used in industrial furnaces and have proven to be very reliable, rugged and long lasting. When choosing electricity, oil or gas as a common source of heat for your furnace, it is very important to note that
electrical furnaces are reliable and trouble free, produce very high quality products and are more environment friendly. Of course it is also important to know that you save money when choosing electrical furnaces since gas or oil
furnaces are far more expensive, require a lot more space and cost much more because of pipe installation.
Scarlet heating elements provide engineers tremendous flexibility and control over conventional heating elements. SAW elements can be fabricated with a change in the Watts / inch along element of an order of magnitude. By using this capability engineers can design zones or segments of specific energy output at the element. Transitions can be smooth or abrupt.
As you can see the element in Figure 1 has the same length and power as the element in Figure 2, but power is distributed differently. Elements are fixed diameter elements with a variable number of wire turns per inch. Elements are made with a pitch (spacing of turns) from closewound wire to one turn in 10 inches or more. Transition from one pitch to another pitch can be immediate or vary smoothly over a distance. By using this technique power can be distributed in a piecewise distribution as shown in the illustrations (Fig 1 and Fig 2) or follow a mathematical expression such as a sinusoid or logarithm, continuously changing over a predetermined length. Complex parts are consistent –especially important in modern automated assembly systems.
Provide landmarks for assembly operations to:
· decrease assembly time and errors
· decrease failures by reducing turns per inch at tight radius bends
· increase accuracy of finished product
· reduce manual labor steps decreasing your product’s cost
· provide consistent dimensions enabling automated assembly
