HT Hopper Heating Module
Hopper Heating Module
The HT hopper heating module is a rugged, self-contained
high performance heater designed for reliable operation
on surfaces prone to vibration. Designed to provide heat
outputs up to 3 watts per square inch (4,650 watts per
square meter) depending on the application, the HT module
distributes heat evenly over the entire panel surface. To
ensure optimal performance, each system is engineered by
Thermon based on the heating requirements of the application.
A parallel circuit design, based on a stamped high temperature
INCONEL® heating element, provides the HT heating
module with multiple flow paths for electrical current to
pass. This design eliminates the burnout potential common
with series wire-based designs. Protection of the heating
element from vibration is achieved with a cushion layer of
insulation that also directs the flow of heat from the module
to the surface being heated.
The rugged construction of the module includes a tough 20-
gauge aluminized steel that provides mechanical protection
during handling, installation and operation. Weld splatter,
rust or oil will not affect the integrity or performance of the
heater. The low profile design of the panel permits rapid,
troublefree installation with the template and mounting kit
available from Thermon.
HT hopper heating modules are approved for use in ordinary
(nonclassified) and hazardous (classified) areas.
