A food manufacturer has historically been using tubular heaters in combination with a high-temperature, food-grade thermal paste to heat their dies that form rice cakes. The wattage required for this application is very high in order to accommodate the high throughput of this manufacturing process. The high wattage can be detrimental to the heating element if the heat is not effectively transferred away from the element and into the die. This ineffective heat transfer has caused a high percentage of failures in the field which causes undesired downtime and added labor costs. The manufacturer searched for and consulted with many different heater manufacturers to find a better solution without success. However, Tempco was able to come up with a more effective design that will last longer in the field.
