Kanthal – Electric Heaters and Globars
Kanthal is the brand for Sandvik’s heating technology products and services. The Kanthal brand belongs to the Sandvik Group, a high-technology engineering group with expertise in areas such as industrial heating and materials technology.
SUPER MOSI2 HEATING ELEMENTS
High-power electric molybdenum disilicide (MoSi2) heating elements for element temperatures up to 1850°C (3360°F). Kanthal Super MoSi2 heating elements are available as straight or bent elements in a wide range of shapes and sizes, all characterized by long life and consistent performance.
The Kanthal program of MoSi2 heating elements includes seven grades with specific features for use in demanding applications and atmospheres, including nitrogen, hydrogen, vacuum and mixtures of endogas and reducing atmospheres.
In addition to MoSi2 elements in standard shapes and sizes we provide special designed MoSi2 elements according to customer needs, enabling an optimized element design for each particular application.
FIBROTHAL HEATING MODULES
Prefabricated heating modules with metallic heating elements and vacuum-formed ceramic fiber insulation for up to 1350°C (2460°F) element temperature.
The construction method of Fibrothal heating modules ensures accurate positioning of the coils and eliminates the distortion or other problems connected to the conventional open coil elements in grooves or on tubes. Fibrothal heating modules also provide major energy savings in several applications.
