History

We have a long history of creating unique process heating solutions.

Formerly a division of OSRAM SYLVANIA Inc., a global provider of innovative lighting solutions, the process heat division was purchased by Smiths Group in October of 2017. Operated under the FlexTek division at Smiths Group, Tutco SureHeat is a now a 4th subdivision of the Tutco Heating Group. 

In 1968, then operating as part of OSRAM SYLVANIA, Inc., the process heat engineering team developed an innovative heating element that exceeded the industry demand for a clean, efficient, and highly controllable source of heat. The Serpentine design overcame the challenges of the manufacturing industry and ensured better heat transfers, faster and higher temperatures and longer heater element life—qualities unmatched in the industry.

​Manufactured in the USA, Tutco SureHeat air heaters are used in aerospace, automotive, industrial, electronic, food, medical, packaging, plastics, pharmaceutical, printing and numerous applications throughout the world. Tutco SureHeat understands industrial facilities are dependent upon productivity, safety, and efficiency. Every component, machine, and process impacts operational cost. In today’s industrial environments, meeting productivity goals can mean the difference between success and failure. As the need for higher temperatures has increased so has productivity demands. This is a problem for most air heaters. Reaching and maintaining temperatures quickly can result in dramatically reduced heater component life. ​
