Ceramic Heaters

Durex Industries’ ceramic-heater technology, which is available in either aluminum nitride (AlN) or alumina (Al2O3), offers significant advantages over metal-based sheath heaters that have limitations in thermal performance or material compatibility. Durex’s ceramic heaters can operate in atmospheric and vacuum environments up to 1652°F (900°C). With its excellent thermal efficiency, AlN heaters can be designed with a multi-layer construction that can deliver up to 2,000 W/in 2. With chemical resistance to most acidic and alkaline solutions, these compact heaters are an ideal solution for demanding thermal applications. Ceramic heaters can be custom-designed to optimize thermal performance for the instrumentation or equipment’s applications.
