Mineral insulated cable heaters can be formed to a wide variety of shapes and sizes that can deliver high temperatures to areas where standard heaters are impractical due to size or space restrictions. Malte-H Mineral cable heaters can be formed to cover cylindrical areas that require uniform heat patterns. Custom-formed mineral insulated cable heaters are transitioned with a moisture resistant transition to a flexible leadwire, which can have additional protective jackets such as stainless steel braid or stainless steel armor. These heating cables are used where high power output, high exposure temperatures, or extreme resistance to environmental corrosives are needed.
Mineral insulated cable heaters are constructed of compacted MgO insulation and capable of operating at high temperatures with excellent dielectric strength and insulation resistance properties. Sheath materials of Inconel or stainless steel are standard. These heaters can be manufactured with internal Thermocouples for integral temperature control. Special cold section lengths can also be designed into this heater as dictated by application requirements.
