The Mini Clean Flow heaters can be used to heat media in-line with the process flow. The heater is cleaned with IPA and rinsed with DI water and then passivated. This process minimizes contamination of the media being heated. For liquids, the max outlet temperature is driven by the liquid media, for gases the max outlet can be 550°C. The internal element in most cases comes with a built-in thermocouple (K or J), which will monitor the heater and the media temperature. BCE prefers grounded junctions, meaning grounded to the sheath of the internal heater. By having this configuration, the heating element is in direct contact with the media, hence maximum efficiency.
Electric heaters and assemblies for wafer manufacturing process. Heated platens for universities, general purpose R&D applications and prototyping. Temperatures up to 700C.
Industrial process tools used for memory devices, transistors, crystal silicon, microprocessors, photovoltaic (PV) cells, and thin film PV cells. All these applications required a shrewd knowledge of temperature, BCE continues to innovate and provide customer specific thermal solutions that are critical to next generation equipment and processes.
High temperature, quick responding, flexible, electrically and environmentally insulated.
Cable heaters feature continuous operating temperatures up to 1200F (843C). Rapid heating and cooling occur due to the low mass construction. All heating elements are sealed from contamination and the stainless steel sheath provides maximum corrosion resistance. Optional internal thermocouples may be utilized for precise control. These coil heaters are available in profiled coil configuration for maximum heating efficiency.
Gas and pump line heaters.
Circulation heaters for water, oils, and steam to chemicals and hydrocarbon gases.
Electric heaters for flowing air or gasses.
BCE Is a highly recognized supplier of electric heaters for a variety of industries worldwide. Offering a comprehensive array of heater products, both industry standard, and custom designs, to suit virtually any thermal processing equipment.
Cartridge heaters provide localized heat in restricted work areas requiring close thermal control. Dies, platens and a variety of other types of processing equipment are efficiently heated. Closely controlled work temperatures up to 1400° F (760° C) are obtained by a combination of heater location and proper wattage output.
Mica, ceramic, and aluminum band heaters available in all standard sizes and termination styles. Configurations for all plastics industry equipment including injection molding, blow molding, and extrusion. Manufactured in on or two piece constructions
BCE's silicone rubber and polyimide heaters take advantage of the unique properties of silicone and polyimide to provide flexible heating elements of unparalleled performance.
Industrial tubular immersion heating elements are used for direct liquid heating applications. They are fabricated of one or more heater elements brazed or welded into various types of fittings. Custom or standard engineered electric heater designs are available for made-to-order solutions to your thermal application requirements.
BCE ceramic thick film heaters are easily customized into a variety of shapes and sizes, and provide excellent heat transfer. Long life is assured by precise thermal matching between ceramics and resistor traces.
Mineral insulated cable heaters can be shaped to a wide variety of forms and sizes delivering high temperatures to areas where standard heaters are impractical due to size or space restrictions. MI Cable heaters can be designed to cover cylindrical areas that require constant heat patterns. Custom-formed mineral insulated cable heaters are transitioned with a vapor resistant transition to a flexible lead wire, which can have additional protective jackets such as stainless steel braid or stainless steel armor.
The delta T between the heating element sheath and the internal wire is minimal which allows you to use high watt density heating elements without any failure, particularly with gas heating.
