Tubular Heaters (IX, HX, KX Series)

Caloritech™ tubular heaters are available in three different series.

  • HX Straight, Unfinned
  • IX Formed, Unfinned
  • KX Finned

IX & HX Series

The Caloritech™ IX & HX Tubular Heaters (Calrod® type*) can be used in most heating applications that require process heating temperatures up to 750°C (1382°F). These tubular elements can be clamped, immersed, cast into metal or spaced away from the work as radiant heaters. They can also be positioned in ducts or vessels for heating air and other gases. These units can be factory formed into virtually any shape, and inside bending diameters as small as one element diameter are sometimes possible. Caloritech™ tubular heater styles offer a selection of sheath diameters and material options, including copper, steel, stainless steel, incoloy®, inconel® and titanium.

KX Series

Caloritech™ KX Finned Tubular Heaters (Calrod® type*) are normally used for forced convection heating applications with outlet air temperatures up to 300°C (572°F). Steel fins are spirally wound over a heating element and then metallurgically bonded by furnace brazing, leaving negligible thermal resistance at the joint. Four surfaces finishes available: bare steel, nickel plated, aluminum painted and black enamel. Finned tubular heaters offer distinct advantages over open coil heaters, including minimized risk of fire or electrical shock, longer service life and less overall required maintenance.

Our guide to Typical Formed Tubular Heater Shapes may be useful when completing this section. Please note, however, that Finned Tubular Heaters can also use a straight unformed configuration. In the space below, please indicate which Figure from the guide you have selected as your preferred configuration. Alternately, if your preferred configuration is straight unformed, please note that. Please provide specifications for as many of the dimensions marked in each figure as you can.

Example:
Fig. 1
D = 3", B = 12", R = 2"

If you wish to develop a custom shape/configuration for your Tubular Heater, please note your intention and provide a brief outline of your requirements in the space below. You can then follow up with the CCI Thermal Technologies Inc. Representative assigned to your inquiry by faxing or e-mailing a sketch after your Online RFQ has been processed.

*Please note that not all Voltages are compatible with all Power Outputs or Sheath Diameters. CCI Thermal Technologies Inc. will make every effort to consider all of the information submitted and quote on the most suitable product model based on that information.

*For instructions on calculating your Heated Length, please refer to Steps 5 & 6 on Pages A10-A11 of Section A of the Caloritech™ Product Catalog

*Cold end(s) must be at least 40mm (1.5") for sheath lengths up to 2000mm (80") and at least 65mm (2.5") for sheath lengths over 2000mm (80").

*Please note that the lower the selected sheath diameter is, the lower the maximum possible sheath length for a single element configuration will be. If you require a longer maximum sheath length than is available for your selected sheath diameter, your quote will be adjusted to account for the multiple element configuration required to meet your specifications.
