ZIRCAR Molybdenum Disilicide Heating Element Type MOSI2 is an electric element principally containing molybdenum disilicide for use in industrial and laboratory furnaces. Elements fabricated of this unique material support high power densities on their surface (e.g. 20 W/cm² of element surface area at an element temperature of 1700°C, 14 W/cm² at 1800°C and 5 W/cm² at 1900°C), can be cycled rapidly, and provide up to 10KVA / sq. ft. power density in rapid cycle and continuous furnace applications. 3 grades are available with maximum element temperatures of 1700°C, 1800°C and 1900°C in air.
The element's "U" shaped heating shanks are supported by larger non-heating terminals. Aluminized ends are provided for positive connection to electrical straps
