Since being established in 1986, we have grown significantly with multiple expansions of our facility both in the US and Asia to cater to growing needs of our customers.
Whether it’s designing a fully customizable solution for your application, or building custom heating elements, sensors, or controllers – Nexthermal has it all. We have consistently helped many of our customers solve complex problems using thermal simulation analysis and designed products to help save energy cost, minimize downtime, and attain a desirable thermal profile.
Due to our global reach and dynamic supply chain, Nexthermal has been consistently meeting and exceeding industry standards with competitive lead times even in the midst of the current ongoing supply chain crisis our world is facing today.
Due to ongoing demand for providing heat solutions, we have expanded our capabilities to develop end-to-end solutions from ideation stage to building and delivery of products. If heat is critical to your application, we are often the go-to company for many of our customers, and we hope that next time you consider us for solving your problems and to help make your projects successful.
How Nexthermal Helps with Customized Heating Solutions:
Heaters, Sensors and Control systems are only parts of a heating system. To get the best Overall Equipment Effectiveness out of the manufacturing floor each part of the system must be designed to complement each other.
Our Vision is to earn worldwide leadership by delivering smart heat management solutions that improve our customers’ competitive advantage.
What does this mean?
Nexthermal works with customers of all industries to understand the needs of the process and the client and uses its highly engineered tools and decades of experience to present a solution. Sometimes the solution might involve redesigning how the tool uses the heat, or a revised sensor location. Others might need only the heat energy to be redistributed without tool changes. Our global engineering team is dedicated to delivering a smart solution.
Nexthermal manufactures a full range of industrial electric process heaters, sensors and control systems in the USA and India. Our global sourcing and international UL, CE and RoHS ratings allow us to tailor the solution to meet the requirements and can include wire harnesses or “up level” assemblies to make it simple to implement into the customer supply chain. Nexthermal also offers flexibility in stocking solutions and volume pricing to meet future requirements.
So, if you’re looking for a better way to reduce scrap, increase process uptime or just want to find a better way to manage your supply chain, talk to Nexthermal for Smart Heat Management.
What are Ceramic Infrared Heaters? Ceramic infrared heaters are generally of two types – convective ceramic infrared heaters and radiant ceramic infrared heaters. In the convective type of heating method, heat is transferred by passing electricity through a sequence of aluminum parts or fins. Ceramic infrared heaters are radiant heaters and can reach temperatures over 750°C. Ceramic infrared transfers heat
Temperature sensors measure the temperature of air, gas, liquids, and solids. They measure how cool or hot a given object is and convert the measurement into readable units such as Fahrenheit and Celsius. They are an important part of various industrial applications and other sectors like medical, food processing, automotive monitoring, oil mining, and glass manufacturing. RTDs (Resistance Temperature Detectors),
Heaters are used for increasing the temperature of various materials and equipment using thermal energy. They are used in several industries that utilize various types of applications. The most common types of heaters are cartridge heaters, electric heaters, ceramic infrared heaters, coil heaters, and induction heaters. What are Coil Heaters? (Dos) A coil is a heating element that can be
Tubular heaters and cartridge heaters are very much alike, but they each have a very different purpose. What Are Cartridge Heaters? Cartridge heaters are a type of industrial heater that come in different diameters and lengths. Cartridge heaters give focused and accurate heating. Most cartridge heaters are straight cylindrical tubes with sizes that are meant to fit into pre-drilled holes.
In simple terms: Fitness for the application.
– Is it the right heater for the process? Heat transfer can be Conductive, Convective or via Radiation, the design will influences the performance and durability in each.
– Are the risk factors that can influence the life or performance addressed in the design? For example temperatures can affect the performance of the lead wire over time resulting in safety issues. Materials have two temperatures: maximum (short term exposure) and continuous (long term exposure) which will be lower. A lead wire rated is rated on its operating temperature (which includes the self heating from current flow as well as environment) and movement. This is only a example to consider, make sure you fully explain the use and installation with the sales engineer to be sure all risk factors are addressed.
– Are safety certifications like UL, CE or RoHS required in the end application?
– How are you controlling the heater? Sensor placement is critical to the performance of the system and can influence durability as well as poor performance.
– Do you need the heater integrated into a harness system for Plug n Play installation? Nexthermal can offer UL listed wire harnesses to simplify your supply chain and add value to certified safe and ready to use manufactured system..
A standard component heater can be built with 10 – 15 business day. If special component required one need to add the time required to make those components based on availability and complexity
Poor fit, movement causing leads to crimp or break, moisture entering the heater, improper placement of the sensor and using the wrong heater for its application.

Nexthermal adds sales tax only as per individual state’s guidelines.
This is what our lawyers want us to write: Nexthermal has as standard a one year warranty on materials and workmanship. Please review our Terms & Conditions posted on our website for more details.
For the rest of us – here is the rest of the story. As with most speciality designed and manufactured products performance to the customers need typically outweighs the importance of a warranty as the overall life and performance of the heater in the system will be largely influenced by the proper design, installation and operation in the system. Your satisfaction of our products performance and life is highly influenced by our ability to understand your challenges and adjust the design to fit the risk.
