is Sandvik's trademark for silicon carbide (SiC) heating elements. It is also a trademark for a family of bulk ceramic non-inductive resistors. Maxcap double-layer capacitors are also included in the range of products.Kanthal® Globar
SiC heating elements are capable of high power output, and may be mounted either vertically or horizontally. Because the element material remains rigid even at the maximum operating temperatures, no special supports are required, which simplifies the design of the equipment.Shape:
- Three Piece Straight Alpha SIC Rods
- Reaction Bonded Single Spiraled Heating Elements
- Reaction Bonded Double Spiraled Heating Elements
- U-Shaped Alpha SIC Rods
- Dumbell Shaped Silicon Carbide Heating Elements
- All Kanthal® Globar® SD rod and multi-leg elements may be mounted vertically or horizontally. The single ended connection of multi-leg elements makes them ideally suited to various applications where standard Kanthal Globar SD rod elements cannot conveniently be used, such as where access would be difficult, where the furnace span is too wide to allow conventional elements to be fit, or in any case where single ended connec-tions are essential.
- Kanthal Globar SD elements are used in a wide variety of furnace applications, from small labora-tory furnaces to large industrial heating processes, in different atmospheres and temperature ranges. The elements allow great freedom in furnace design which, combined with simple installation and long operating life, makes them the preferred choice in many applications including: glass, ceramics, electronics and metal industries, and also for re-search and development.
- Examples of some typical furnaces where Kanthal Globar SD elements are the natural choice are illustrated below.
