Electrical Ladle Heaters offer 70% net efficiency.

December 26, 2013

By heating ladles with electricity instead of gas, Kanthal Heaters enable aluminum producers and steel foundries to lower energy costs and CO2 emissions. Design allows same heater tube to be used for both heating and holding. Heating elements are arranged in reflector, allowing radiation to be accurately directed toward target area. With uniform temperature profile and no flame or streaming of hot exhausts, lifetime of refractory is prolonged by 10–15%. Read More
