AccuTherm is a specialist in design, and manufacturing heating systems for the extrusion press industry. Our years of experience in this application enable us to provide long life performance in these difficult applications. Care is exercised to design each system to its maximum capacity, for the space available, with conservative watt densities coupled with the finest materials available. This combination gives superior life in these applications.
AccuTherm offers custom design units to be used to supplement other heating systems.
Seamless Incoloy® 840 sheath material.
High purity MgO Powder, compacted to provide maximum heat conductivity and optimum dielectric strength.
Type ‘A’ 80/20 resistance wire sized to provide the lowest wire watt density for maximum life. Precision wound to provide even heat flux over length of element.
Fusion welded junction between cold pin & resistance wire giving superior life.
Bends recompacted to restore MgO density in bend areas on formed units.
Heavy duty stainless steel supports.
Elements are individually replaceable.
High temperature bussing and leadwires.
Flexible conduit with plug and receptacle.
Handles provided to facilitate positioning in bore.
Terminal enclosure of heavy gauge steel.
AccuTherm Container Bore Heaters are used to accelerate container heat-up. They are used to reduce start-up time at the beginning of the shift, and to regain operating temperature more rapidly between billets.
