Flexible heaters offer a range of advantages in a variety of commercial industries including aerospace, electronics, food and beverage, and medical. They perform various functions, such as keeping food warm to prevent condensation in electronic equipment. Some of the most common flexible heaters are flexible silicone heaters and Kapton heaters, which offer excellent heat transfer and flexibility, and provide fast warm-up for a variety of applications. However, it is important to understand some of the challenges associated with using both types of heaters in order to prevent product issues or equipment failure. With this in mind, we offer a range of flexible heater solutions, ideal for a variety of applications.
Some things to consider when using flexible silicone heaters:
Some electronics and other products are used within certain temperature limits to prevent them from malfunctioning. Industrial applications must often adhere to these constraints. So when we design the heater, we will install a temperature control switch on it to control the temperature of the heater within the acceptable range of electronic products. In this way, the failure of electronic products due to excessive temperature is avoided.
Depending on the type of resistive element and material used for the flexible heater, heater size limitations need to be considered. The thinness of the heater can also control the possible size. The size of the silicone heating element depends on the type of resistance element used, it can be designed according to the user's product, and the size of the heater can be set within a reasonable range.
Heating Material Limits
When selecting an appropriate flexible heater, manufacturers must consider the properties of the material to be heated. If the properties of the material change when heated, or if the material is susceptible to high temperatures, a heater that produces a lower temperature is required. The raw materials used by Danyu can operate at -40°C-200°C, and can be used for a long time below 150°C. Material thickness can also affect the effectiveness of the heating element. The thickness can be customized according to the needs of the product, and we also have thick film heaters to choose from.
The inherent low profile, tensile strength, resistance to common solvents and fluids, and precise heating capabilities of the flexible heater material allow aerospace and satellite equipment with space or weight constraints in extreme temperature environments and rapid heating or surface heating Use of custom flex heaters is a must.
Flexible silicone heaters have excellent tensile strength, tear resistance, dimensional stability and bendability. Flexible heaters can be bonded to the surface of a variety of complex products, so they can be installed in narrow or space-constrained spaces to distribute heat evenly across the heated surface.
The design and application of flexible heaters are very flexible to meet your specific needs, and the first step in choosing the right heater is to understand the functions and limitations of different heaters. Danyu has a wealth of heater design and production solutions, and can design solutions that suit them according to different customers.
