Durex Industries’ 1/8” Cartridge Heater was developed for OEMs that require a small but high-power thermal solution. Typical applications include injectors used in a gas chromatograph, ion sources used in mass spectrometry, lead attachment in die bonders and other applications requiring a high watt density in a small area. The heater, also known as a miniature cartridge heater, is designed with a thin 304 stainless steel wall for fast temperature response, and is swaged for low internal temperatures and longer life. Additionally, the proprietary magnesium oxide compaction process assures the highest possible dielectric strength. The cartridges can be used in applications up to 1000 F. Custom heaters can be designed to lengths up to 12”, 750 W and voltage from 8 to 240 VAC.
