Flexible Circuit Heaters Meet Most Challenging Requirements

By Prince Sam Subscribe to RSS | April 16th 2012 | Views:

Today, industries like medicine, military, green technology, and many more require heating solutions that are precise, dependable and quick. For such requirements, flexible circuit heaters have emerged as the most viable option. Such devices offer impeccable warm-ups and heat transfer in a measured manner. With increasing innovation in this field, it has become possible to provide solutions for the most challenging heating requirements.

There are different types of flexible heaters that can be used for different applications in a variety of industries. We give you a quick guide to the types of heaters that make use of flexible circuits:

• Polyester heater: The use of polyester paves the way for uniform heat transfer and an even heat output for quick warm-ups. These heaters can be used on surfaces that are either flat or gently curved. The best part about polyester heaters is that they can be designed and produced in different shapes and sizes to suit different applications. Some of the most common uses of these heaters are for heating rearview mirrors, de-icing equipment, bathroom mirror heater, cabinet heater etc.

• Polyimide heater: This material, also commonly referred to as Kapton, is a semi-transparent material that has excellent dielectric properties. Moreover, this material can withstand chemical acids and bases making it suited for industrial use products. Since Kapton is capable of handling temperatures in the range of -270 degree centigrade to as high as 220 degree centigrade, it can be applied for uses that are prone to extreme temperature fluctuations.

• PTC heaters: These heaters have self-regulating features. Even when operating in a broad range of voltage and dissipation conditions, these heaters can provide a constant temperature (with no incidence of hot and cold temperatures). The circuits in these heaters are made of either silver or aluminum. These heaters are robust enough to function even after they have been subjected to minor damages. Finally, the greatest advantage of these heaters is that they are cost-effective.

• Silicone rubber heater: Such heaters can be typically found in applications such as photo copy machines, medical respirators, ultrasonic cleaners, food service equipment, freeze protection and condensation prevention devices. Silicone rubber is best suited for such heaters with flexible circuits because it demonstrates excellent temperature properties without compromising on flexibility and even heat distribution. Moreover, it is waterproof, making it completely safe.

Now that you are aware of the different types of flexible circuit heaters it is important to note that the installation and use of such heaters. Any carelessness with relation to the use of such heaters could cause a potential shock hazard.

Flexible foil heaters are used in multiple applications in different industries across the world. With rapid innovations and advances in flexible circuit heaters, you would find them being applied in telecommunications, medical devices, green technologies, food service, military and transport operations.
