Mineral Insulated Cable Heaters
Mineral insulated cable heaters can be formed to a wide variety of shapes and sizes that can deliver high temperatures to areas where standard heaters are impractical due to size or space restrictions. MI Cable heaters can be formed to cover cylindrical areas that require uniform heat patterns. Custom-formed mineral insulated cable heaters are transitioned with a moisture resistant transition to a flexible lead wire, which can have additional protective jackets such as stainless steel braid or stainless steel armor.

Durex can also modify any cable heater with special sheath materials, sheath seals and protective connection housings for immersion heating in a gas or liquid environment. Flange and over-the-side designs, as well as many other styles, are also available. Contact us for Engineering Assistance.
Mineral insulated cable heaters are constructed of compacted MgO insulation and capable of operating at temperatures up to 1800°F (980°C) with excellent dielectric strength and insulation resistance properties. Sheath materials of Inconel or stainless steel are standard. These heaters can be manufactured with internal thermocouples for integral temperature control. Special...
When the temperature, moisture-resistance or chemical exposure factors require, any Durex heater can be supplied with Teflon® end seals on the heater sheath, Teflon® coating on the entire sheath and/or Teflon® insulated lead wires. Durex produces these heaters for such demanding yet varied environments as semiconductor and food processing applications,...
