Ceramic band heaters are medium-to-high temperature heaters that can deliver up to 1200°F. The nickel-chrome heating cores of these durable heaters are placed inside interlocking ceramic tiles that are assembled like a brick wall. A ceramic fiber insulating mat and a stainless steel jacket cover this assembly. This construction makes ceramic heaters flexible and highly energy efficient. An energized ceramic heater that operates at 1200°F internally will have around 400°F on its outside shell. Ceramic heaters consume 20 % less energy than band heaters that are not insulated.
