OMEGA™ finned strip heaters are extremely efficient and dependable as a heat source for hundreds of industrial and commercial applications. They are used for both forced (mounted in a duct) and natural convection air heating (mounted at the bottom of cabinet type ovens). The finned strip heater’s basic design consists of a helically wound resistance coil placed in a specially designed ceramic insulator. The resistance coil is mechanically connected to the screw terminal for positive connection. Stainless steel rectangular tubing is used to house the heater assembly. All remaining voids are filled with high purity magnesium oxide to increase thermal conductivity and dielectric strength. Nickel-plated steel fins (stainless steel optional) are mounted to the rectangular tubing. The fins have been specially designed to provide maximum surface contact for good heat dissipation into the finned cross sections, thus resulting in rapid heat transfer to the air. OMEGA finned strip heaters are manufactured in a full line of standard sizes, electrical ratings and terminations, or can be made to your specifications.
