Replacement Heating Elements
Elements eventually wear out and need replacing. Some elements are indexed and put through rigorous and rapid temperature changes. Industrial facilities are under constant pressures to improve efficiencies, increase production, and gain advantages. Heater element life expectancy is vastly different from application to application. Heating element life is dependent on proper control and element wire temperature. The estimated life-cycle is based on the heater element operating at or below temperatures specified. Most element failures are due to low air flow or damage associated to power control and voltage ramp up rates. If an element has failed prematurely, it should be inspected to determine the cause of the failure. Determining the cause will prevent the same problem from reoccurring.
OEM custom field replaceable elements can be engineered to improve processes and element life based on application characteristics. We can even develop heavy duty replacement elements for competitive process heating products. For more information on our custom capbilities and Serpentine Replacement Element products click here.
