When we have a broken heating element, we are faced with replacing the heating rod.
There are many factors to consider when choosing the right heating element, including the power of the heating rod, its shape and operating conditions.
Silicon Carbide Heating Elements
Silicon carbide heating elements are made of high purity silicon carbide material. They are typically used in high temperature applications requiring a temperature range between 1400°C and 1600°C.
They are known for their durability and long life, making them the best choice for long continuous heating applications.
MoSi2 Heating Elements
MoSi2 heating elements are made of molybdenum disilicide. They are typically used in high temperature applications that require a temperature range between 1600°C and 1700°C.
MoSi2 heating elements are known for their high temperature resistance, making them ideal for applications that require high temperature heating for short periods of time.
Factors to consider
When selecting the right heating element, it is important to consider the power of the hot rod, the shape, etc., including the desired temperature range, the size of the heating element, and the type of heating element best suited for the particular application.
Other factors to consider include voltage and power requirements, as well as the materials that the heating element will come in contact with during use.
In summary, the type of heating element needed will depend on the specific application, shape and operating conditions, and if you have difficulty in replacing it, you can contact the manufacturer for after-sales help.
