Versatile tubular elements can be designed for
use in most applications. See guidelines in the
Tubular Heater Overview section.
The metal sheath isolates and protects the resistor
wire from the environment. At the same
time, it maximizes heat transfer capability to
the work. Tubular elements can be bent to put
the heat where it works best.
Type 4 Terminals — Standard. Integral parts of the element are of high strength to resist bending during tightening of the wiring connections.
Type 4 is threaded extension of the cold pin. See terminal detail drawing in the Tubular Heater Overview section.
Work Temperatures — See Tubular Heater Overview section.
Bending — Customer’s minimum inside bending radius is 1-1/2". See bending requirements in the Tubular Heater Overview section.
