Construction Characteristics
The cutaway view shows the tubular heater’s basic construction.

  • A computer-designed helical coil of 80% Nickel 20% Chromium alloy resistance wire is fusion welded to the nickel-coated steel terminal cold pin.
  • This coil assembly is precisely stretched and centered in the element metal sheath
  • The sheath is then filled with Grade “A” Magnesium Oxide powder (MgO).
  • The filled tube is then compacted by a roll reduction mill into a solid mass, permanently stabilizing the coil in the center of the tube while providing excellent heat transfer and dielectric strength between the coil and the sheath.
