Other common electric heating elements

In addition to silicon carbide heater rods and MoSi2 heating elements, there are several other common electric heating elements being used for high temperature heating, including.

NiCr heating elements. NiCr is a nickel-chromium alloy that has high oxidation resistance and good electrical conductivity.

Tungsten heating elements. Tungsten is a high density, high melting point metal, due to its good high temperature stability and oxidation resistance, is also used in heating elements, more common in daily life, such as electric heating fans used for indoor heating in winter, the heating element used in electric heating air is used in tungsten heating.

Choosing the right electric heating element

When choosing an electric heating element, the most suitable heating element must be selected for the specific heating requirements, including temperature range, working environment and service life. Each type of heating element has different performance and different use scenarios.

Electrical heating elements are a central component of the high-temperature heating process. They can be made from a variety of materials, including silicon carbide, MoSi2, nickel-chromium and tungsten. Different types of heating elements have their own unique properties and different use scenarios, so it is important that I choose the right heating element to ensure optimal performance and service life in my use.
