Ceramic Heater Technologies

Ceramic heater technologies have material properties that result in performance advantages over other heater solutions.  High operating temperature, rapid thermal response, lightweight, and chemical resistance are a few of the ceramic heater characteristics that make them ideal for many aerospace, defense and security applications.   Typical applications include high temperature gas chromatograph injectors and mass spectrometer ion sources.

Durex industries' Rapid Fire aluminum nitride (AlN) ceramic heater solutions combine the thermal conductivity of aluminum and dielectric strength of specialty ceramics with physical properties similar to stainless steel.  New levels of machine design and thermal performance can be achieved through the excellent thermal, dielectric and physical properties of AlN heaters.

Ceramic heater technologies offer significant advantages over metal based sheath heaters that have limitations in thermal performance or material compatibility. Durex' ceramic heaters can operate in atmospheric and vacuum environments up to 1000°C (1832°F). With its excellent thermal conductivity, AlN heaters can be designed with a multi-layer construction that can deliver up to 2000 W/in2 (310 W/cm2). With chemical resistance to most acidic and alkaline solutions, these compact robust heaters are an ideal solution for demanding thermal applications. Ceramic heaters can be custom designed to optimize thermal performance for instrumentation and equipment applications.
