Misumi USA has expanded its Cartridge Heater range to offer more flexibility in selecting a suitable heating element for industrial machinery, manufacturing, assembly and finishing processes.

Misumi’s cartridge heaters are compression-type heaters comprised of a ceramic core wrapped with nichrome heating wires (isolated by magnesium oxide), housed within a stainless-steel sheath.

Applications for these heating elements are broad and diverse, according to Misumi.

For example, they can be placed into metal plates, blocks or rollers used in processes such as shell casting, dry and adhesive presswork, hot stamping and engraving – as well as in the manufacture of products and systems for heat exchange, distillation heating, medical sterilisation and solder melting operations.

The latest product designs in Misumi’s portfolio of cartridge heaters include high-temperature configurable L cartridge heaters: MCHLH, MCHLHB and MCHLHC.

These high-temperature heaters provide a maximum operating temperature range up to 900C, with reliable insulation integrity over a long service life.

Users can configure the heaters based on flange shape, length (in 1mm increments from 50-300mm), diameter, voltage (100V to 220V), wattage (in 10W increments from 50-1,100W).

Misumi also offers cartridge heaters with internal connection for lead wire protection: MCHG, MCHGA and MCHGB.

In this design, the heat-generating wire and lead wire are connected within the stainless-steel sheath.

Since the crimp terminal is not exposed, the heater has a stronger structure to protect against breakage due to bending or vibration.

Maximum operating temperature is 600C.

Users can configure the heaters based on flange shape, length (in 1mm increments from 50-400mm), diameter, voltage (100V to 220V), wattage (in 10W increments from 50-2,000W).

Another addition to the range are cartridge heaters with flanged flexible hose: MCHH, MCHHA and MCHHC.

In these three line extensions to the existing MCHH flexible hose heater, the lead wire is covered with a flexible hose made of stainless steel to protect the heater and lead wire from damage due to external impact or metal fatigue.

Misumi’s other standard and configurable cartridge heater designs include: L, W and F types; high-temperature types; flanged and knurled flange types; compact heaters with built-in sensor (K-Type Thermocouple), and more.

Misumi also offers a wide range of specialised heating elements, including: rubber heaters, plate and ceramic plate heaters, air sheathed heaters, sheathed heaters for liquid heating, plus a range of cord and ribbon heaters featuring a flexible, sheathed design that allows the heating elements to be wrapped directly around piping.
