Cartridge PTC heater elements are the kind of PTC heating element built into exceptionally corrosive resistant stainless steel casing. The shape is just like our normal cartridge heater, but the inside heating element is PTC elements. PTC ceramic heating elements improve the efficiency of typical resistive heating elements used in immersible applications where optimal heat transfer is required. Such as water heating or oil heating equipment. Thus, no need to worry about the over heating during the working, because the elements functionality is PTC ceramic heating elements are self-limiting and voltage self-insulating, providing more efficient heat transfer.
Application of the Cartridge PTC Heater Elements:
Heating gases & liquids
Hot melt adhesives
A PTC element cartridge component converts electrical energy through the resistive element to heat which transfers very effectively to the aluminum housing. The circular stainless steel housing is designed to transfer heat directly to the surrounding surface or liquid.
Due to the compact size of these heating elements and power density, the energy transfer is more efficient than many other types of heating elements. The PTC elements draw more power initially due to lower resistance and heat faster but lower power as the element reaches equilibrium with the adjoining space.
How to order?
When you are ready to order a cartridge PTC heater, you need to let us know the working condition of the elements will work in and what is your required temperature, you can also let us know your desired watt or ask our advice, and you also need to let us know all the dimension just like what we make for cartridge heaters, like the diameter, length, lead wire requirements or screw flange information, if you have a technical drawing or simple drawing would be great helpful.
Jaye make the Cartridge PTC heating elements with high quality standards based on customer’s specific working condition and temperature requirements.
