Flexible / Band Heaters

We distribute a large range of Process heaters and our extensive knowledge and experience in this field allows us to help determine the best solution for your heating needs.

Band / Barrel Process Heaters

The mineral insulated band heater is a high-performance heater.  A thin layer of the “high” thermal conductive MI material is used to electrically insulate the element wire from the inside diameter of the heater sheath. A thicker, “low” thermal conductivity layer backs up the element wire directing the heat inward toward the part being heated. The result is more efficient heat transfer, which lowers element wire temperatures and increases heater life.

Nozzle Process Heaters

These heaters are formed to fit cylindrical parts. Applications for these heaters range from industrial processes to medical applications.

Products: Mineral Insulated Nozzle Heaters, Thick Film Cylindrical Heaters, Pre-coiled Nozzle Heaters
Materials: Stainless Steel
Temperature Max: 1400 F (760 C)

Radiant Process Heaters

Used in non-contact applications where conduction or convection heating is not practical.

Products: Band and Strip Emitters and Panel Heaters
Materials: Stainless Steel
Temperature Max: 2000 F (1095 C)

Flexible Process Heaters

Commonly used to heat irregular surfaces, shapes and pipes. These heaters can be bonded or fastened to parts and are often used for freeze protection.  Flexible heaters from Valax are thin, bendable and shaped to fit almost any equipment. Heat can be applied to the most complex shapes, geometries, curves and pipes conceivable without sacrificing efficiency or dependability.

Materials: Silicone Rubber and Polyimide
Temperature Max: 500 F (260 C )
