The construction of plate heating elements is identical to that of band heaters, only plate heaters are flat or bent at an angle. Also for plate heaters there are many possibilities for the electrical connection.
These elements can off course also be equipped with thermocouples, holes and so on. For a good heat transfer it is of importance, that the plate heating element is clamped onto the object to be heated. Heating Group International can supply you, on request, with a tailor made clamping plate.
Plate heaters are used on all kinds of flat heat transferring metal parts, such as machine parts (of f.e. plastics or rubber machines), moulds, seal bars, hot presses, tanks, warming plates, etc.
