Nexthermal offers many cartridge heater performance options to ensure that the cartridge heater you receive is made with your specific application needs in mind.
Nexthermal has developed industry specific winding profiles to improve thermal profiles including packaging, rubber and injection molding. We have also successfully developed OEM specific winding profiles to compensate for challenging cartridge heater placement.
If your application requires wash down, has high amounts of humidity in the ambient air, or has machining oil nearby, then Nexthermal has a wide range of options to deliver moisture resistance at your operating temperature, leading to high performance for your cartridge heaters.
Anti-Seize Coating for Cartridge Heaters
Building a cartridge heater that lasts longer can make removal more difficult when a heater must be replaced. Removal labor often costs more than the cartridge heater itself. Nexthermal in-house anti-seize coating is a cost effective option that can be added without impacting delivery.
Nexthermal offers knock out tabs and other removal aids that allow you to quickly and confidently remove a cartridge heater when it is a time to replace it. Knock out tabs are recommended when you are installing the heater in a through bore prone to oxidation.
Right Angle Exit
To customize cartridge heaters for specific applications, Nexthermal has redesigned the right angle exit with flat sides, making it possible to use a wrench to precisely position lead exit and break oxidation bonds when removing a heater.
Right Angle Block
The Right Angle Block has flat sides and substantial materials to provide the strength needed for highly corrosive environments such as die casting- where the cartridge heater sheath can be bonded to the bore.
Standard Flanges, Special Flanges and NPT
If your application calls for the heater to have a specific insertion depth, or to be held in place - Nexthermal offers standard flanges for most diameters. We can also design special flanges for your application. NPT fittings can be added to your cartridge heater.
Centerless Grind Tolerance
Nexthermal’s standard tolerance of ±.002” compares favorably to other cartridge heaters. If heat transfer is critical to your application, Nexthermal offers premium centerless grind tolerances that are ±.0008”.
With the above range of cartridge heater performance options from Nexthermal, you are ready to create cartridge heaters customized to your applications.
