Lead and Protections

Each application with it special leads

Placing the correct lead for each application is fundamental for the security and life of the cartridge heater. Excessive vibration and temperature wolid cause them to lose insliation and produce breakage and short-circuits.

Insulation Material Working temperature Más vida Útil High temperatures Vibrations Hermetic
Silicon Rubber 302º F / 150º C Poor Poor Excellent Good
Plomo fluoropolímero (PFA) 392ºF / 200ºC Excellent Good Excellent Excellent
Fiberglass / silicone 482ºF / 250ºC Good Good Poor Poor
Fiberglass / mica / silicone 752ºF / 400ºC Good Excellent Poor Good
Ceramic Bead Insulation 1200ºF / 650ºC Poor Excellent Male Male

Protect your Lead Wires

Protect your leads to avoid shocks, scratches, overheating, cleaning, contamination, cuts, explosive environments, moisture, etc. you will win in security and life will increase, giving extra professionalism to your project.
