Heater Type
   Heater Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Air Heater       Air heaters are used to heat air. This category includes forced air products and all types of radiant and space heaters. 
   Band Heater       Band heaters are ring-shaped heaters that clamp onto a cylindrical object and heat via conductive heat transfer. 
   Coil Heater and Cable Heater       Coil heaters and cable heaters are heating elements formed from straight (uncoiled) segments of round or square heating cable. 
   Cartridge Heater       Cartridge heaters are cylindrical heaters that are inserted into a heated substance. 
   Cast-In Heater       Cast-in heaters are made-to-order tubular or wire heaters that are cast into a part. These parts are designed to be an integral component of a larger piece of equipment. 
   Ceramic Fiber Heater       Ceramic fiber heaters are only used for radiant heat transfer. They are not designed for conduction heating applications. 
   Circulation Heater       Circulation heaters are used to heat moving or circulating fluids. 
   Drum Heater       Drum heaters are used to heat cylindrical containers of viscous materials. They either clamp onto the outside diameter of the drum, or are inserted directly into the material to be heated within the drum. 
   Duct Heater       Duct heaters are used to heat streams of moving gas. 
   Enclosure Heater       Enclosure heaters are designed for use within enclosures. They prevent freezing and provide protection and humidity control. 
   Flexible Heater       Flexible heaters can be molded to the shape of a heated object. 
   Forced Air Heater       Forced air heaters use forced convection to move air past a heat source with a fan or blower. 
   Heat Torch       Heat torches are forced-process air heaters. They are used in applications that require modest amounts of focused air. 
   Immersion Heater       Immersion heaters are used in applications where it is necessary to immerse a heater in the substance being heated. Flange and screw-plug varieties are easy to use and quick to install. 
   Induction Heater       Induction heaters use an electrical source to drive alternating current (AC) through a coil to heat metal objects. 
   Infrared Heater       Infrared heaters use current flowing through resistive elements to produce electromagnetic waves in the infrared (IR) spectrum.  These waves may be reflected onto the material to be heated, or may use a panel to evenly distribute the heating waves.  The IR waves heat the object or material in the path. Note that the object is heated directly by the IR waves instead of the surrounding air.  
   Over-the-Side Heater       Over-the-side heaters are immersion heaters that hang over the side of a tank of heated material. 
   Radiant Flat Panel Heater       Radiant flat panel heaters are used to heat objects via radiant heat transfer.  
   Radiant Reflective Process Heater       Radiant heaters use a reflective shield to direct radiant heat onto a heated surface.  
   Radiant Heater Element       Radiant heater elements are used with radiant flat panel and radiant reflective heaters. 
   Radiator       Radiators have coils that contain heated, circulated media such as oil, hot water, or steam. 
   Room / Space Heater       Room and space heaters are used to heat rooms, garages, and other areas that workers use. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary heaters. 
   Steam Injection Heater       Steam injection heaters inject steam into a system to maintain or raise temperature levels. 
   Strip Heater       Strip heaters are flat heaters that can be bolted, clamped or stuck to a solid surface for freeze protection, humidity control, food warming and other applications. They are available in both plain and finned designs. 
   Tubular Heater       Tubular heaters are used in custom heating applications. Base (tubular) heating elements can be bent into standard or custom shapes. 
   Water Heater       Water heaters are gas, oil or electric-fired devices that heat water for residential and commercial use.

Power Requirements and Outputs
   Maximum Operating (Sheath) Temperature       Maximum operating (sheath) temperature is the highest temperature that the heater's sheath (or protective cover) may reach. This is not the maximum temperature a heated substance may reach. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.
   Phase:       
   Your choices are...         
   Single Phase       Heaters use single-phase power. 
   Three Phase       Heaters use three-phase power. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   AC Voltage Required       Heaters require AC voltage. Most heaters use AC voltage instead of DC voltage. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   kWatts       Heating capacity is the wattage which the heater can deliver. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Watt Density       The maximum watt density that the heater can deliver. Watt density is a good measure of how quickly the heater can transfer heat to a heated surface. To calculate watt density, suppliers divide the available wattage by the heated surface area. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Sleeve (Sheath) Material
   Sleeve (Sheath) Material      Most heaters have a protective sheath or sleeve that covers the heating elements. There are usually many choices for sheath or sleeve material.
   Your choices are...         
   None       The heater has a bare, exposed heating element without a sleeve or sheath. 
   Aluminum       The sleeve or sheath is made of aluminum, a bluish, silver-white, malleable, ductile, light, trivalent, metallic element that provides good electrical and thermal conductivity, high reflectivity, and resistance to oxidation. 
   Brass       The sleeve or sheath is made of brass, an alloy that provides good strength, excellent high temperature ductility, reasonable cold ductility, good electrical conductivity, excellent corrosion resistance, and low magnetic permeability. 
   Copper       The sleeve or sheath is made of copper, a common, reddish, metallic element that is ductile and malleable. Copper is one of the best conductors of heat and electricity. 
   Fluoropolymer (Teflon®)       The sleeve or sheath is made of a fluropolymer such as Teflon® (DuPont Dow Elastomers). Teflon refers to a class of fluoropolymer resins used for a wide variety of commercial applications. They are highly-resistant to temperature, chemical reaction, corrosion, and stress-cracking. 
   HT Foil (Ceramic Foil)       The sleeve or sheath is made of high temperature (HT) foil. HT foil is sometimes called ceramic foil. 
   Iron       The sleeve or sheath is made of iron. 
   Nickel Alloy (Inconel®, Incoloy®, Monel®)       The sleeve or sheath is made of nickel alloy. The amount of nickel varies by alloy type. Proprietary alloys include Inconel®, Monel® (Special Metals Corporation) and Incoloy® (Inco Alloys International). 
   Polyimide (Kapton®)       The sleeve or sheath is made of a polyimide such as Kapton® (DuPont). 
   Rubber       The sleeve or sheath is made of natural or synthetic rubber, silicone, or styrene butadiene (SBR). 
   Stainless Steel       The sleeve or sheath is made of stainless steel, a chemical and corrosion resistant alloy that can have relatively high-pressure ratings. 
   Steel       The sleeve or sheath is made of steel, a commercial iron that contains carbon in any amount up to about 1.7% as an essential alloying constituent. Steel is malleable under suitable conditions and distinguished from cast iron by its malleability and lower carbon content. 
   Synthetic Rubber (Neoprene)       The sleeve or sheath is made of a synthetic rubber such as neoprene. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary sleeve or sheath materials.
