1. Cost and weight savvy material than Nickel-Chrome alloys
2. Greater electric resistance hence higher heat production than Nichrome
3. Excellent oxidation resistancePDF Download
Kanthal Wire Mesh Heater is made of Kanthal Wire (Kanthal D, Kanthal A-1 or Kanthal APM). It has great resistance to high temperature and corrosive environments. Kanthal Mesh Heater has good resistance to oxidation and sulfur induced corrosion.
|Highest service temperature||1400oC|
|Magnetic properties||Magnetic up to 600oC|
Kanthal is a widely known heating material for its exceptional electric resistance properties. It is basically an iron-chromium-aluminum alloy that is used for electrical resistance heating elements and similar applications. It is advantageous for higher temperature application, long service life, greater resistivity and outstanding corrosion resistance.
