MICA Band Heaters

Mica band heaters are a type of electric heater that clamps around and transfers heat to different types of surfaces. Mica band heaters are typically used to heat flat and cylinder-shaped surfaces. All of these heaters operate on the basis of electrical conduction, though some may use a combination of electrical conduction and convection. Some band heaters clamp around the inner diameter of a surface, while the majority of applications requires clamping of heater around the outer diameter of a cylindrical element in order to transfer heat from the outside.

Mica band heaters consists of mica, which act as an insulating mineral. Heating element is wrapped around the mica core and together, they are bent to form the mica heater. Although mica heaters can only reach a maximum temperature of 850 degrees Fahrenheit, their resistance to water and chemicals makes them a popular choice for harsh operating environments.

It is a cost economical as well as reliable heater, designed with the high quality nickel-chromium heating element, enclosed in a lightweight assembly for fast heat transfer. Furthermore, temperature control can be offered to ensure that the heater operates as needed. Mica band heaters are a cost-effective as well as an efficient way to heat cylindrical and flat surfaces that need external heating.

These types of heaters are widely used in a variety of industries due to their durability and flexibility. Marathon heaters has been a reliable and industry-leading supplier of mica band heaters for many years. Depending on the various industrial applications, we can also provide band heaters with various clamping techniques and construction styles (one-piece band, two-piece band).
