Silicon carbide (SiC) electric heating elements for element temperatures up to 1625°C (2927°F), available in a wide variety of standard sizes and geometries, or in customized designs to meet the specific needs of various processes and equipment.
Kanthal Globar SiC heating elements are capable of high power output, and may be mounted either vertically or horizontally. Because the element material remains rigid even at the maximum operating temperatures, no special supports are required, which simplifies the design of the equipment.
The Kanthal program includes several types of silicon carbide (SiC) heating elements for float baths used in the manufacture of soda-lime flat glass for architectural, automotive and solar-glass applications. Special float elements for flat panel display glass are also supplied.
