Mica Strip Heaters

MIca Strip Heater

Mica insulated strip heaters are economical heat sources, suitable for providing heat to flat surfaces. The sheath temperature is limited to 900°F. Maximum allowable watt densities with respect to application temperatures are shown in the diagram. However, 20 Watts/in² is a safe value.

In order to avoid thermal expansion issues that detach mica strip heaters from the surfaces that they are applied to, strip heaters can be made to include several mounting holes or pressure plates that provide rigidity and improve heat transfer uniformity as well.

Mica insulated strip heaters are available in many electrical termination styles, and within certain design limitations can accommodate holes and cut-outs.
