Custom Flexible Silicone and Kapton Heaters

Custom Flexible Silicone and Kapton Heaters

custom flexible heaters

Flexible Heaters are thin and lightweight surface heaters for precise heating of solid bodies. They consist of wire wound elements and a flexible material such as Silicone or Kapton foil. Flexible heaters come in various shapes such as Wire wound heaters, Etched foil heaters, Foam insulation heaters, Preformed heaters, Spiral heaters and Kapton heaters.

Flexible Heaters can be used for a wide variety of applications, e.g. Industrial catering, Battery warming, Environmental control or electronics particularly telecommunications, Military & Aerospace devices, Laboratory equipment, Fluid or gas delivery systems, Photographic and optical equipment, GRP pipe curing systems, and more.

Features:

  • Wire wound heaters, Etched foil heaters, Foam insulation heaters, Preformed heaters, Spiral heaters and Kapton heaters

  • Flexible and lightweight

  • Bespoke solutions on request

  • Moisture and chemical resistant

  • Temperatures up to 260°C

  • Fast and efficient thermal transfer

  • UL, VDE and LSLT options available

Wire Wound  Heaters

wire wound heater


Heaters that are constructed using wire wound elements are ideal for customers looking to purchase in lower volumes. This particular construction is optimal for heaters that will be handled frequently, as opposed to being fixed or static. This type of heater can be heavily customised to suit a wide variety of applications.

Characteristics:

Moisture and chemical resistant

Flexible and lightweight

UL, VDE and LSLT options available

Maximum size 940 x 3000mm

Thickness range 1.1mm to 3mm

Temperature range -60°C to 250°C

 

Connecting your heater:

  • DBK will make the heater with a wire harness to suit your needs.  Tell us what length you require, specifying with connectors, terminations or bare ends.

Controlling your heater:

  • If required, safety thermostats, cycling thermostats and NTC thermistors can easily be accommodated into your design.

 ETCHED FOIL HEATERS

Etched Foil Heaters

Heaters that are constructed using etched foil tracks are ideal for customers who are looking to purchase in higher volumes. The heat distribution in etched foil elements is significantly better than wire elements due to the additional coverage they provide. This increased area means an etched foil heater can handle high power densities with rapid heat up properties. This type of heater can be heavily customized to suit a wide variety of applications.

Characteristics
  • Moisture and chemical resistant

  • Flexible and lightweight
  • UL, VDE and LSLT options available
  • Maximum size 595 x 2500mm
  • Thickness range 0.8mm to 1.5mm
  • Temperature range -60°C to 230°C



    We would be pleased to help you with your design and calculation, and we will also prepare the complete determination of the heating element at your request.

    KAPTON HEATERS

    Kapton polyimide heaters

    Kapton (polyimide) is a thin, flexible and semi-transparent material that is ideally suited for applications that require a fast and efficient thermal transfer. Due to the resilient nature of the material, these heaters are suitable in environments that require chemical resistance with zero outgassing. This type of heater can be heavily customised to suit a wide variety of applications.

    Characteristics

    • Ozone, weather and chemical resistant

    • Fast and efficient thermal transfer
    • Thin and lightweight
    • Maximum size 285 x 550mm
    • Thickness of 0.2mm
    • Temperature range -269°C to 200°C
        We would be pleased to help you with your design and calculation, and we will also prepare the complete determination of the heating element at your request.

        SPIRAL HEATERS

        spiral heaters

        Spiral heater has been specifically designed to be suitable for straight, curved or rigid pipework. Being robust and easy to install, they are the ideal solution for pipework with small diameters.

        Characteristics:

        • Moisture and chemical resistant
        • Flexible and lightweight
        • UL option available
        • Standard lengths from 205mm to 1020mm
        • Target diameters 6.35mm to 12.7mm (others available on request)
        • Temperature range -60°C to 200°C

        PREFORMED HEATERS

        preformed heaters

        Silicone heaters can be pre-formed to suit a wide variety of pipework and vessels. These heaters will hold their shape without fixings in certain applications. We can also supply with separate fixings for more dynamic or sensitive applications. This type of heater can be heavily customised to suit a wide variety of applications

        Characteristics

        • Moisture and chemical resistant

        • Can be made in wire or foil
        • UL, VDE and LSLT options available
        • Diameter range 10mm to 200mm
        • Thickness range 1.5mm to 2.2mm
        • Temperature range -60°C to 260°C
