Enquiry

Dpstar provides the thermal engineering necessary to produce a custom heater that meets your exact length, temperature, and wattage requirements. We work with customers to understand their heating challenges and have provided many innovative solutions for custom-designed tape heaters to be installed on vessels, tubing, flat heat sinks and other applications. The engineered tape heater is electrically terminated, sealed and ready to install. The custom package may contain fixed temperature thermostats, lead wires or plugs and is always tested by quality control prior to customer use.

How  Does Heat Tape Work?

Thermal energy is transferred directly to the object through both conductive and radiant modes of heat. Addition radiant energy emitted away from the object is reflected back onto it. This ensures the most efficacious conversion of electrical energy to thermal energy directly to the tube being heated.

Note: In applications exposed to weather, water, mechanical abuse or solvents, tapes will require additional protection. If there is any potential for moisture to come in contact with the heat tape, we recommend a ground circuit should be installed between the aluminum top surface of the heating tape and the grounded metal heat sink to which it is applied.

Custom resistances from .11 ohms/ft. to 60 ohms/ft. available upon request.

(1) Ohms/foot with all conductors in parallel connection.
(2) Ohms/foot with all conductors in series connection.
(3) Ohms/foot with conductors in parallel/series connection.
(4) Maximum wattage per lineal foot when applied to a metal heat sink at room temperature. Reduce these ratings linearly to zero watts output at 500ºF. Use of Clayborn Terminals is encouraged to insure thermal grounding of Heating Tape along its entire length (see Terminal Literature –>) Adhesion to heat sink along entire length is important to prevent burnout when tape is used near maximum wattage rating.
