Mineral insulated bands are a high wattage heater with ratings up to 100W/in2. The MI bands are great for any application that needs fast heat up times without having to worry about causing failure to the heater in the process.
The MI bands are a stainless steel sheath wrapped around a nichrome heating core embedded in an aluminum oxide compound that has to be dried for a 4-5 day period before it can be baked for 40 hours. The baking process ensures that the compound becomes a solid piece of ceramic inside the heating element.
The heater band can come with a large number of termination styles, sizes, as well as holes and cutouts.
We stock all standard sizes and wattage. With all our bands being made in the US our customers know that the quality they buy is the best in the industry. We have not gone overseas to profit, we have elected to make sure our customers receive the longest lasting bands available. It makes no sense in saving a few dollars on a heater that will cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars in downtime replacing parts that fail.
