High-temperature & high-pressure custom air heater
solutions for precise and durable performance.
Growing global demand for fuel efficiency, reduced emissions, and renewable energy has given rise into new technologies dependent on ever increasing temperature and pressure gas streams. Tutco SureHeat Specialty Flanged Inline (SFI) Heaters deliver safe, precise, and durable performance in a wide-range of extremely demanding high-temperature, high-pressure and low-flow applications. SFI heaters are customized electric heating solutions manufactured to meet your specifications.
TUTCO SureHeat manufactures electric heaters used in the testing of pneumatic components that require high pressure, high temperature air. Our line of Specialty Flanged Inline (SFI) heaters are designed to meet the critical and demanding requirements of FAA Repair Stations as well as for OEMs developing the next generation of aerospace components. With its industry leading performance based on SureHeat’s open-coil, Serpentine Technology™, achieving the highest productivity and cost effectiveness is assured. TUTCO SureHeat products are proudly engineered and manufactured in the USA and sold worldwide.

Typical SFI Applications:
Combustion Research and Engine Development test stands: Jet, auto, and diesel.
Valve testing for aviation maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) facilities.
Fuel cell R&D test stands and heat-up operations.
Pollution control in SCR NOx and other Catalyst applications.
High temperature furnaces.
Waste to energy processes.
Key Advantages: Specialty Flanged Inline (SFI) inline heaters offer superior performance over conventional sheathed (“tubular” or “immersion”) style heaters because they are designed specifically for air and inert gas applications.
Tutco SureHeat’s proprietary SERPENTINE element facilitates a very high power density and compact overall design. SFI heaters can be as much as 8-12X smaller than equivalent tubular/immersion designs.
With this advantage, installations become smaller, lighter, and more cost effective, with a faster heat-up and cool-down time.
Whether for a research test stand, factory production line, or key component in a product or system, Tutco SureHeat’s Specialty Flanged Inline heater is the right tool for the job.
