A mineral insulated heating cable consists of one or two conductors of a highly resistant metal, such as nickel chromium, converting electrical energy into heat. The wires are insulated with high quality magnesium oxide and covered with a corrosion resistant sheath material, such as Inconel 600, Alloy 825, or stainless steel. Mineral insulated heating cables are applied in high temperature environments, when a large power output is required, and if strong resistance to corrosive surroundings are needed.
Kamet has many mineral insulated heating cables in stock that can be shipped to you directly.
Kamet has a large stock of over 30 different kinds of Okazaki mineral insulated heating cables that can be applied in a broad variety of industries. Our Okazaki mineral insulated heating cables are typically insulated with Inconel 600, Alloy 825, or stainless steel. Each cable is supplied in different resistance values, ranging from 0.16 Ohm per meter to 46.0 Ohm per meter.
Mineral insulated heating cables are applied to heat up processes in different industries, such as the semiconductor industry, aerospace, and for heat tracing applications. It is the preferred choice when high temperatures and a large power output are needed. One of the advantages of mineral insulated heating cable is a constant power output, independent of temperate variations. Temperatures of up to 800 °C can be achieved in environments with an exposed temperature of up to 1000 °C.
Inconel 600 has an excellent resistance to general corrosion and stress-corrosion cracking and a high capability of withstanding high temperatures.
Alloy 825 offers an ideal combination of ruggedness, high corrosion resistance and a high capability of withstanding high temperatures.
Stainless steel offers high corrosion resistance properties against a wide range of organic acids and alkalis.
