Newly Developed High-R Value Silicone Foam Blanket Heaters
Press release date: January 30, 2014
Cary, IL – Durex Industries, a leading North American designer and manufacturer of heaters, temperature sensors, controls and systems, recently announced development of their High-R Value Silicone Foam Blanket Heaters. This heater technology was designed for thermal applications requiring insulation to reduce costly heat loss that sub-optimizes the heaters performance. The high-R value insulation is also used to provide touch safe protection in the work environment.
Durex Industries developed processes for manufacturing high-R value silicone foam insulation and married the foam insulation with silicone rubber heaters. The foam insulation and heater are molded into a homogeneous assembly that may include temperature sensors, thermo-stat, thermo-fuses and other components. By molding the assembly, Durex Industries can mold the heater assembly to fit the contours of components and provide the maximum thermal transfer and temperature uniformity.
