Heating elements

Mineral insulated Heating for research institutes

Providing highly localised and controllable heating with low power consumption  is critical for a range of research applications. This applies both to work in the laboratories of research facilities as well as during field work where resources might be limited and large heaters can be impractical, inconsistent and unreliable.

The variety in thermal challenges for researchers is as varied as the analytical and life science fields for which they are used. Mineral insulated heating elements and  heating cable are a welcome solution for many research institutes. They are small, flexible, responsive, reliable and use very little power. Furthermore, at Kamet we can develop and deliver MI heating units that are highly customized for a client’s specific research application.

Advantages and usage of MI heating in the research industry

Research institutes run projects for various industries. The microheaters and heating cables offered by Kamet have a number of advantageous characteristics that can be relevant to this work including:

  • Precision temperature control
  • high accuracy over a range of temperatures
  • Flexibility to fit in intricate, small spaces
  • Resistance to challenging environments including high temperatures, corrosive atmospheres and high pressures or vacuums
  • Power efficient: heat is generated exactly where required, reducing power consumption
  • Short thermal response times when heating is only required for very brief, intermittent periods
  • Easy to braze

A few examples of research areas where MI heating has been shown to offer significant improvements:

  • battery testing
  • fluid tank level indicators
  • isotope separators
  • DNA analysis
  • micro scale sensing experiments
  • gas detection
  • diagnostic technologies
  • semiconductor applications

Heating solutions for research institutes

The range of potential for using MI heating solutions in research is vast and the projects being run by research institutions reflect many different industries. However one of the most significant advantages to purchasing MI thermal solutions through Kamet is that our  in-house experts are available to work closely with clients in order to choose, design or customize the ideal heating solution for any thermal challenge.
