We offers variety of band heaters to accommodate any cylindrical application. Fast Heat's product offering ranges from the patented better band using mineral insulated technology to the better belly band used for compressor applications
Band heaters are ring-shaped heating devices that clamp around a cylindrical element. Heat transfer from band heaters occurs via the conductive method. Most band heaters clamp around the outer diameter of a cylindrical element and heat the element from the outside. Some products clamp around the inner diameter of a pipe. Typically, band heaters are quipped with ceramic or mineral insulation to reduce heat loss to the environment.
Band heaters use a sleeve, jacket or sheath as a protective outer covering for the heating elements.
Band heaters must attach, or clamp to the object(s) they are heating. Most have multiple clamping options from which to choose. Examples include: standard (bent up) flange or tab, quick release, built-in strap, separate straps, barrel nuts and wedge lock or mounts.
