Power Requirements and Output
   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.
   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.

Dimensions
   Nominal Diameter       The heater diameter should be sized for proper insertion into holes. 
   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.
   Heated Length       The measured length is for the heated section of the cartridge only. 
   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       The sleeve or sheath is made of a fluoropolymer 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       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       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       The sleeve or sheath is made of a synthetic rubber such as neoprene. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary sleeve or sheath materials.

Insulation
   Insulation Options      Heater insulation reduces heat loss to the environment. Some heaters may be available with multiple insulation options.
   Your choices are...         
   No Insulation       Heaters do not have insulation. They have a lower profile and are useful in areas where space is at a premium, but are not particularly energy efficient. 
   Ceramic Insulation       Heaters have ceramic insulation. Ceramics consist of nonmetallic minerals, such as clay, that are permanently hardened by high-temperature firing. Most ceramics resist heat and chemicals. 
   Magnesium Oxide       Heaters have magnesium oxide insulation. 
   Mica Insulation       Heaters have mica insulation. Mica consists of colored or transparent mineral silicates that are crystallized in monoclinic forms and readily separated into very thin leaves. Mica is valued for its electrical insulating properties and resistance to heat and acids. 
   Mineral Insulation       Heaters have mineral insulation. 
   Fluoropolymer       Heaters have fluoropolymer insulation made of materials such as Teflon® (DuPont).  
   Fiberglass Insulation       Heaters have fiberglass insulation. Fiberglass is strong, durable, and impervious to many caustics and extreme temperatures. Fiberglass fabrics are used widely in industry. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary insulation options. 
   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.
