elements are used in numerous consumer and industrial products. These elements
are used to heat air in various applications such as clothes dryers, room
heaters and heating ducts for performance testing of power-generation
equipment. The heating elements are made from wire and strip products. They are
typically wound into coils to maximize the surface area of the heating element
to rapidly heat flowing air.
