Tempco Tubular heaters, also known as sheathed elements or tubular elements, are extremely versatile. They are widely used in commercial, scientific and industrial heating solutions for a variety of applications. They consist of a metal sheath that encloses a resistance wire coil surrounded by compacted, insulating material. Magnesium oxide is most-commonly used as the insulating material because of its high thermal conductivity and low electrical conductivity. Tubular heaters can be bent into different shapes and sizes. Tempco offers multiple sheath materials to suit different heating mediums and environments. Tubular heating elements can also be fitted with various terminations and mounting options for easy installation and maintenance. Additionally, they can be designed with different electrical ratings, heater diameters and heater lengths. Read more at our latest blog!
