Our company provides a wide range of heating wire products, including PVC type, silicone rubber type, Teflon type, constant wattage type, nonmagnetic type, and far infrared type. If you are looking for high quality and competitively priced insulated resistance wires accompanied by dependable service, we can satisfy your requirements.
Our heater wires incorporate many great properties, such as good electrical insulating ability, flexibility and good heat conductivity. As a result, they are increasingly used in a variety of applications. For instance, they are used in medical apparatus for heat preservation purpose and in domestic, commercial refrigeration applications to avoid the formation of condensation on surfaces.
To ensure successful use of the product, customers should pay attention to the following three critical factors:
1. Proper selection of the resistance to provide the desired wattage.
2. Choosing the appropriate style of wire.
3. Proper installation in the application.
Proper Selection of Resistance
Our heating wire can be customized in terms of the resistance measured in ohms per meter. The resistance value depends on the watts per meter and voltage available in customer's application. The amount of heat or wattage required will vary according to the actual use and design.
Customers should keep many factors in mind during product installation. The most important one is a good thermal transfer between the wire and the surface to be heated. There are two major ways to install the heating wire: one is taping it directly to the surface, and the other is bonding it to aluminum foil and then securing the self adhering foil to the surface. The foil bonding design could ensure proper spacing of the heater wire, good heat distribution, and make installation easier.
Please avoid sharp edges and corners when laying the product in grooves or channels around door perimeters. Otherwise, the wire will be cut or abraded. However, customers can use fiberglass or aluminum braid over it to prevent surface abrasion. Metal or plastic channels can be used, and lining the grooves in wooden door frames with aluminum tape will provide abrasion protection and help reflect heat outward toward the surface to be heated.
In case that multiple passes of wire are used, customers should keep them apart to avoid contact. If the wire should cross itself, the effective wattage at that point is doubled, which may result in hotspot or burnout.
