Mica Strip Heaters
Mica strip heaters are versatile and highly customizable. In addition to rugged construction, each heater is expert engineered to stand up to the most demanding applications.
Mica strip heaters are capable of sheath temperatures up to 900°F/480°C (aluminized steel), and 1200°F/650°C (stainless steel). A variety of heater constructions are available, with many termination options.
This datasheet contains many typical mica strip heater configurations. For specialized variations, please consult your Zesta sales engineer for custom applications.
