Single Ended Tubular Heating Elements are of similar construction as our standard tubular elements. They terminate at one end which can simplify wiring and installation. These are most commonly used in molds and other heat transferring metal parts as well as open air applications and immersion applications.
Molds and other heat-transferring metal parts and air heating applications. Immersion heating with flange, screwplug, threaded fitting or other means of mounting.
Elements with both terminals at one end, in dies, can simplify wiring in many cases. Use slim elements to concentrate heat into a confined area, taking up less space than a U-shaped element with terminals at each end.
Construction — Similar to the standard Chromalox tubular design, except that both terminals of the embedded resistor wire are at one end of the element. 10" lead wires have silicone-impregnated Fiberglas® sleeves and are attached to the terminals inside a ceramic terminal bushing.
Sealed End for Immersion Heating on end opposite terminals is provided on all stock, single-end elements. When ordering nonstock elements for use as immersion heaters, specify “sealed end”.
Work Temperatures — See Tubular Heater Overview section.
Bending — Generally not recommended for single-end elements.
