Believe it or not, the bulk of the mail we get here at the Downtown Frame Up Blog headquarters in some manner or form usually revolves around the topic of the cartridge heater. For the benefit of those of you who do not know anything about this particular product and in an effort to stem the literal tsunami of letters that is overwhelming our mail room, the editorial board of the Downtown Frame Up Blog is posting the following information taken from the Gordo Sales website:
[The] Cartridge heater [is] an extraordinarily versatile and durable product that is used to heat a myriad different processes from heavy industrial – plastics and packaging applications to critical care medical devices and analytical test instruments to being used on aircrafts, rail cars and trucks. Cartridge heaters are capable of operating at temperatures of up to 1400F and achieving watt densities of up to 260 watts per square inch. Available from stock or custom manufactured to your individual application need, they are available in many different imperial and metric diameters and lengths with many different style terminations, wattage and voltage ratings.Cartridge heaters are an excellent choice to use as a conductive source for heating solid metal plates, blocks and dies or as a convective heat source for use in a variety of liquids and gases. Cartridge heaters can be used in a vacuum atmosphere with proper design guidelines.
As the faithful readers of the Downtown Frame Up Blog should be well aware (after having read the verbiage from the Gordo Sales Website) the cartridge heater is an extremely useful product especially in the heating of various different processes. Accordingly, now that this information has been promulgated we expect to see an ebb in the tide of mail sent to our mail room written about this topic.
