Contact Heating Element

In close cooperation with Frima we develeoped a Contact Heating Element (CHE) for their braising pans. CHE consist of a thick film heating element that evenly spreads the heat over the surface to be heated. So, the heating element itself is spreading the heat, and thus there is no need for diffuser plates. The heat is transferred to the object to be heated via a graphite sheet. The elements are simply “bolted” to the object; a simple, reliable and effective solution.

A summary of properties and benefits:

  • Power/heat evenly distributed over a large surface area.
  • Multiple elements on a surface to heat large areas.
  • Low mass required to evenly distribute the heat – Better speed & control.
  • Rapid heat-up, quick cool - Shorter waiting time.
  • High power of 8 W/cm2.
  • Less accumulated heat – Energy saving.
  • The heated surface can be split into zones that can be controlled at different temperatures.
  • Slim-line design and lower external heat losses – Greater design freedom
