Coil & Hot Runner Heater/ Mica Band Heater / Ceramic Band Heater

Coil & Hot Runner Heater

Coil Type Nozzle Band Heaters are specially designed to prevent the failure of heaters against the leakage of plastic material at nozzle.These heaters gives higher temperature (above 250C) at nozzle point which is required for H.D. Plastics such as Nylon, ABS, Delrin.
Heating of Nozzle of Plastic Moulding and extrusion M/C, Hot Stamping, Plastic Riveting.

can be supplied with in built Temperature Sensor J or K type.
.More Life, Higher Temperature
.No failure Against leakage


Hot runner heaters are essential components of hot runner systems, which are used to convey molten plastic from the injection molding machine to the mold cavities. Hot runner heaters are responsible for heating up the plastic inside the mold and maintaining a constant temperature throughout the process.
Hot runner systems have many advantages over cold runner systems, such as:
- Reduced material waste and cost
- Improved product quality and consistency
- Faster cycle time and productivity
- Easier color change and material change
- Lower environmental impact

There are different types of hot runner heaters available in the market, depending on their shape, size, material and design. Some of the common types are:

- Coil heaters :   These are flexible heaters that can be bent into various shapes and sizes to fit into complex mold geometries. They have a high power density (up to 60 W/cm2) and fast heat transfer rate (up to 50°C/s). They are made of nickel-chromium alloy wire wrapped around a ceramic or metal core. They can withstand temperatures up to 900°C.

- Cartridge heaters :   These are cylindrical heaters that can be inserted into holes or grooves in the mold. They have a low power density (up to 15 W/cm2) and slow heat transfer rate (up to 10°C/s). They are made of nickel-chromium alloy wire embedded in a ceramic or metal tube filled with magnesium oxide powder. They can withstand temperatures up to 800°C.

- Tubular heaters :   These are rigid heaters that can be formed into straight or curved sections to fit into simple mold geometries. They have a medium power density (up to 30 W/cm2) and heat transfer rate (up to 20°C/s). They are made of nickel-chromium alloy wire coiled inside a metal tube with fins or ribs for better heat dissipation. They can withstand temperatures up to 700°C.


Mica band heaters offer efficient and economical solutions for heating cylindrical surfaces that require indirect external heating. They are ideal solution for high watt density and high temperature applications. It uses nickel chromium resistance strip as heating element which is precisely wounded on a dielectric material for even heat distribution. The heating element is insulated within a mica core enclosed in a metal sheath which provides exceptional insulation, dielectric strength and heat transfer capability for faster heat up and longer heater life. Heaters can incorporate various sized holes and cut-outs and are customizable for various dimensions, wattages, voltages and materials to suit different application requirements. Mica band heaters can also accommodate built in thermocouple which helps in controlling temperature more accurately. Thermocouples can be of type “J” or type “K”, grounded or ungrounded.

Ceramic Band Heater

Ceramic Band Heaters are manufactured by using special ceramic insulation material ' Steatite ' and fabricated with stainless steel sheet. The heating coils is made of high quality Nichrome wires.The spot welded clamp bars, Allen screw clamping provides a uniform clamping.

Ceramic Band Heaters are used for heating of moulds,dies,nozzles and barrels on all types of plastic processing machinery.Heaters having high watt densities provide high operating temperature, resulting into high productivity. Its Maximum sheet temperature up to 800 degree Celsius and

Its Maximum Watt density up to 50 Watts per Square Inches for the blower air cooling, the perforated ceramic heaters with cooling fins or without cooling fins can be manufactured as per customers specification.

  • • Semiconductor industry.


• Lower Operating Cost – Less heat escapes to the air and less wattage is required to maintain barrel temperature, due to superior insulation.
• Heat transfer – Conduction and radiation are used as the means to transfer heat, thus they are less prone to thermal expansion problems and a near perfect fit is not required as with other heaters.
• Longer Heater Life – All materials used are rated to operate at very high temperatures.
• Higher Operating Temperatures.
• Flexible – Easy to install and remove.
• Uniform heat distribution.
