Silicon Carbide Rods heating elements

Silicon carbide electric heating elements for element temperatures up to 1625C (2927F), available in a wide variety of standard sizes and geometries, or in customized designs to meet the specific needs of various processes and equipment.

Silicon carbide heating elements are capable of high power output, and may be mounted either vertically or horizontally. Because the element material remains rigid even at the maximum operating temperatures, no special supports are required, which simplifies the design of the equipment.

Standard grades

Grade Description
Globar SD Elements suitable for most applications in which silicon carbide elements are used. Kanthal silicon carbide heating elements feature hot zones of recrystallised silicon carbide, optimized for resistance to oxidation and common process gases. Available in rod or multi-leg designs.
Globar HD Silicon Carbide heating elements designed for the most challenging applications where conventional silicon carbide elements are unsuitable. Kanthal Silicon Carbide heating elements feature hot zones of high density, low permeability, reaction-bonded silicon carbide, which is highly resistant to oxidation, and to chemical attack by process volatiles and reactive atmospheres. Available in rod or multi-leg designs.
Globar SG/SR Tubular spiralled SiC elements made from Kanthal Silicon Carbide material.
