Electric heating elements embedded in aluminum, brass and bronze are an excellent solution to transfer heat with no risk of corrosion. At Electricfor we manufacture this kind of product designed for applications such as heating presses, extruders, molds and heat exchangers. These are cases where it is of vital importance that the heating element is not in contact with the solid or fluid to be heated, hence it is possible to increase the element heat load while avoiding possible corrosion.
Electricfor’s heating elements embedded in aluminum, brass and bronze provide excellent conductivity, homogeneity and heat transfer. They reach temperatures up to 750ºC (when talking about aluminum, up to 400ºC) and are designed in order not to dangerously affect other parts of the device that incorporate them, therefore ensuring an acceptable life.
Its applications also include vacuum equipment used in sectors such as plastics, packaging, metallurgy and chemical industry. This type of packaging machines usually require electric heating elements with a large number of forms and applications (static air, circulating air, contact...). Electricfor adapts in this sense each design to each circumstance, distributing the necessary power at each point to achieve an effective temperature homogenization.
Our heating elements embedded in aluminum, brass and bronze electric can be designed with an internal cooling circuit for rapid cooling. We mechanize them to adapt their surface to the part to be heated, also allowing the arrengement of holes and accessories for their subjection.
Electricfor can build this type of heating elements under ATEX / IECEx certification, mandatory in areas where an explosive atmosphere can be generated. This guarantees that all the protective measures are accomplished so that the electrical resistance does not become (by electric arc or by surface temperature) a source of combustion or incandescence.
