Cast-in heaters are a unique heat source that can be adapted to many high-performance applications. Cast-in heaters are basically a heated part or tool that can be conceptualized and integrated as a component in a variety of equipment such as hot melt adhesives, foodservice, medical, packaging, paint spraying, semiconductor, and process pipelines.
The heating element is cast into aluminum, bronze, or iron and is an integral part of the final metal part, therefore operating at maximum heater efficiency, and eliminating the need to supply a heater as a second component attached to a machined component.
Durex engineering can assist with the process of specifying cast-in heated parts to fit your application. Additional components such as terminal boxes, threaded fittings, special tubing, or temperature sensors can be cast-in as system requirements dictate.
