Ceramic Fiber Panels

Tempco Ceramic Fiber Insulated Heaters combine a heat source with superior high temperature insulation—an ideal solution for an unlimited number of industrial heating applications. Tempco Ceramic Fiber Insulated Heaters produce fast, efficient, and reliable uniform heat to temperatures of 1100°C (2012°F). Higher temperature ratings, up to 1200°C (2192°F), are available with a limited number of designs.

These heaters are comprised of high-quality helically wound Fe-Cr-Al alloy resistance wire elements embedded in a rigid body of vacuum-formed high temperature refractory fiber. This ceramic fiber insulation has very low weight, thermal mass and thermal conductivity and thus can handle extremely rapid cycling. The elements are typically mounted flush with the heated surface. The diameter of the helically wound element coil is kept to a minimum, reducing the difference between the element and chamber temperature, thus ensuring long heater life. This feature enables the design and manufacture of responsive heating systems and significantly reduces the risk of overheating the element.
