Tempco Cartridge heaters: the Food&Beverage industry’s favourites

Posted on

Our Cartridge Heaters are used by many industries but it is proven to be the best type for the Food and Beverage Industry, due to its localised heat source.

All food preparation equipment must use reliable heating for the preparation, processing, preservation and packaging of the food.

Why are Tempco Cartridge Heaters the best for the Food&Beverage industry?

• Apart from the habitual sheath materials -321 Stainless Steel and Incoloy® 800- the heaters are also available in 316L Stainless Steel, which is considered to be the best food-grade Stainless Steel material.

• These materials along with Passivation to remove surface contamination and Electro-Polishing to eliminate surface contaminants offer the perfect corrosion protection.

• Tempco Cartridge Heater can be built with high watt densities up to 300W/square inch, reaching high temperatures up to 760°C.

• The variety of heaters available can be used in different applications such as coffee makers, food warmers, dairy equipment, heat sealing equipment, baking equipment… and much more.

Here are some examples of Custom Cartridge Heaters for Food and Beverage Industry Applications:

Formed High-Density Cartridge Heater for Food Packaging Machinery

• Cartridge Heater formed into circular motion: In cases when a formed heater is required, a tubular element is normally the first alternative. Nevertheless, when the watt density is too high for a tubular heating element, a Tempco Hi-Density Cartridge Heater is a great alternative.

• Moisture resistant seal and flexible SJO cord.

Cartridge Heaters used in Flour Tortilla Press

• These are designed for high voltage use and with moisture-resistant seal.

• Mounting flange.

• Electrical Termination is screw terminals to ensure a quick connection of the power cable.

Self-controlled Low-Density Cartridge Heater for Film Wrapping Machine

• Evenly heat distribution across the application with a built-in thermostat that enables self-controlled temperature.

• Stainless Steel Cable for abrasion protection.

High-Density Cartridge Heater for Beverage Carbonation

• SJO cord.

• Moisture resistant seal.

• A built-in thermostat that enables self-controlled temperature.
