Silcarb Manufactures MoSi2 heating element as straight and bent elements in a wide range of sizes and shapes.
Two-shank MoSi2 heating element with straight terminals are defined by:
Heating zone diameter, c, mm
Terminal diameter, d, mm
Terminal length, CZ, mm
Heating zone length, HZ, mm
Center distance between shanks, a, mm
A two-shank U-shaped element (MOSIL (MoSi2)Straight Elements) is the most commonly used design. The heating zone is welded to terminals that are typically twice the diameter of the heating zone. Straight MOSIL (MoSi2) heating elements are manufactured to industry-standard resistance values. The same spacing, power ratings, and voltages can be used as with other molybdenum disilicide elements. The maximum length of the heating zone is determined by the temperature of the element. Sintering and heat treatment on electronic ceramics, structural ceramics, magnetic materials, flameproof materials, glass, metallurgy, and other applications are possible. Silcarb heating elements are interchangeable with Kanthal super 1900, i2r, i-squaredr, and super kanthal 1800.
