Türk+Hillinger presents the world’s smallest heating cartridge for standard voltages
Türk+Hillinger, the world’s leading supplier of compacted electric heating elements will be exhibiting and presenting another technological breakthrough in the heating element industry at the World Plastics Industry exhibition in October, at the K Show in Düsseldorf. With numerous innovations, the German company has achieved worldwide growth in recent years in a difficult market environment. Among the growth drivers are the high-performance cartridge heaters of the Type HLP series, which have been established in the marketplace for many years. Thanks to their special design, these heating elements allow an extremely high surface load and thus accommodates high performance in the smallest of spaces. The available lengths and diameters allow a variety of applications for a wide assortment of applications in many industries.
The heating elements are manufactured according to customer specifications. For numerous diameters and lengths, there is also an extensive stock program on hand, which ensures short-term delivery.
The specialists from the German company based in Tuttlingen have reached another technological milestone with further miniaturization of their proven high-performance heating cartridges. „With the reduction of the diameter to 2.0 mm we surpassed the absolute threshold range. The development was challenging and our testing was extensive, so we are proud to offer these micro heaters to our demanding customers“, said Andreas Schlipf, Technical Director/ CTO of the company.
The compact heating elements are available in lengths of 10 – 150 mm with a maximum surface load of up to 70 W / cm² and a maximum sheath temperature of up to 750° C. The miniature cartridge heaters are made with insulated PTFE strands. A special feature is that these miniature heating cartridges are available for both low-voltage and standard voltage applications up to 250 V.
The small high-performance cartridge heaters offer many new possibilities, especially in demanding applications in medical technology, the automotive industry, laboratory and analysis technology, semiconductor industry and packaging machines. Another field of application for these micro heating elements is the heating of miniaturized plastic injection nozzles in hot runner technology. They can also be used in the cosmetic and consumer industry, as these miniaturized elements can heat complex systems to very precise temperatures.
Türk+Hillinger presents these and other new innovations at this year’s plastics exhibition in Dusseldorf in Hall 10 Booth J44.
