Micanite heating elements are electrical contact heaters and consist of a Micanite winding part and a heating conductor. For electrical insulation, the winding part is fixed between two Micanite plates and covered with a steel sheet for additional mechanical protection. Micanite is a material with high temperature stability for electrical insulation. Micanite heating elements are available in various shapes depending on the application and are usually pressed against the body from the outside or fastened via the existing fixing holes. They can be designed as flat or tubular heating elements. We recommend thermal insulation towards the non-heated side of the heater.
