Advantages of Ceramic Heaters

  • Compact, Lightweight and Energy Efficient
    Ceramic heaters feature high watt density and excellent thermal efficiency. Multiple heating elements can be layered into a single unit.
  • Superior Thermal Properties
    Ceramic heaters reach high temperatures rapidly, and are available with custom-designed heat distribution patterns. The material’s strong insulation properties permit direct contact with a variety of materials, including water, kerosene and metals.
  • High Reliability
    Superior dielectric strength, electrical insulation and chemical resistance give Innovacera’s ceramic heaters outstanding reliability. Our oxidation-resistant material ensures a long service life.
  • No Electric Noise
    Ceramic heaters produce no electric noise.

Heater Design Structure

The heating element of the ceramic heater is built into a substrate of alumina or silicon nitride material, then laminated and sintered into one piece — providing insulation and protection from the outside environment.
