The EcoBand insulation reduces the overall electricity consumption for this heater band by 15-25%

Band Heaters:
 
 
Heater Bands are primarily used on injection moulding and extrusion machines in the plastic industry.Other applications include packaging machines and general heating of containers, pipes. A distinctive feature of these elements is even heat distribution over a large surface area. Construction consists of heating wire, insulated with either Mica-plates or ceramic formers. The elements are usually metal shrouded for mechanical strength.
 
 
Mica Insulation:
 
Mica insulation offers thin construction (4mm), maximum Watts density of 3.5 W/cm² and operation up to 380°C. For process temperatures in excess of 280°, ceramic insulation is preferred.
 

Ceramic Insulation:

Ceramic elements are thicker in construction (12mm) but offer a Watts density of 5.5 W/cm² and operating temperature up to 600°C. Generally ceramic elements are more durable than mica elements, thus offsetting the higher price with a longer life expectancy.
