The role of electric heating elements

Electric heating elements convert electrical energy into heat energy. In industry, silicon carbide heating elements and MoSi2 heating elements are two of the most commonly used most heating elements.

Silicon Carbide Heating Elements

Silicon carbide heating elements are made from super quality green silicon carbide. They work by passing an electric current through the element, which generates heat. This heat is radiated from the heating element and thus heats the object. The temperature of a silicon carbide heating element can be controlled by adjusting the current passing through it.

MoSi2 Heating Elements

MoSi2 heating elements are made from high pure Molybdenum Disilicide. It also works by converting electrical energy into heat energy, the higher the current, the higher the temperature produced. Each MoSi2 heating element has a maximum current limit, and using too much current can cause damage to the heating element.

One of the main advantages of a molybdenum disilicide heating element is its higher temperature, typically between 1600°C and 1700°C, and up to 1900°C. This makes it ideal for applications that require high temperatures, such as furnaces for metal heat treatment. Molybdenum disilicide heating elements are also very durable and long lasting, making them a popular choice for high temperature applications.
