Silicone Rubber Elastic Wrap Heaters
From technology development to product innovation, Durex Industries continues to develop solutions that can be applied to challenging thermal applications. Elastic Wrap Silicone Rubber Heaters is just one of many new products from Durex Industries.
Durex developed the Elastic Wrap Heater (EWH) technology for applications that require freeze protection or to prevent condensation. Based on silicone rubber heater technology, lengths of the flexible heater are coiled similar to a telephone cord. The elasticity of the cord facilitates easy wrapping of the silicone rubber heater around pipes, tubes, and fittings. The molded end protector snaps around a pipe to provide structural support for the lead wires. These 120 and 240 VAC flexible heaters are available in widths up to 1.0 in. (25.4 mm) and straight lengths up to 125 in. (3175 mm).
Customers have successfully applied the elastic wrap silicone rubber heaters in applications such as plumbing systems for water treatment and semiconductor processing equipment. Elastic wrap heaters are typically used on piping from 0.25 in. (6.35 mm) to 4.0 in. (10.16 mm) in diameter. The ease of installation and removal, along with the inert characteristics of silicone rubber make elastic wrap heaters an excellent value.
