Hot Stuff – Ceramics for Industrial Heating Applications
Electrical heating elements are used in innumerable industrial processes. They are used in plastics technology for heating injection nozzles, hot runners and tools, and in chemicals technology for melting and evaporating samples. In automotive engineering they are used, for instance, for the ignition of fuel mixes (hot surface igniters) and for heating sensors (e.g. !-sensor). Other applications include industrial and laboratory furnaces, brazing and welding technology as well as various domestic appliances.
