  • Field replaceable tubing
  • Temperature indicator lights
  • High thermal efficiency
  • Long life span
  • Robust UV and chemical resistant outer cover

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.

At the heart of this innovative product, Dpstar Heat Tube, spirally wrapped onto your choice of tubing (Teflon, aluminum, stainless steel, etc.) with your choice of sizing (1/16” O.D. to 4” O.D.) and accessories. Custom engineered for individual use, Heated Sample Lines give you the flexibility to heat most anything using voltages from 12VDC to 277VAC. Control the temperature with the use of a variable voltage supply, an embedded thermostat or through thermocouple / RTD feedback on your controller. We offer indicator lights for user awareness; strain relief for durability; a variety of coverings to choose from and Dpstar engineering to ensure you know it’s done right.
