Silicone heaters are an excellent choice for heating stainless steel elements, especially in applications such as catering. These heaters provide a convenient solution for creating a heated surface by simply mounting them underneath the desired element.

Some key points to highlight:

  1. Versatility: Silicone heaters are suitable for a wide range of applications, including stainless steel elements that require heat.
  2. Efficiency: By using silicone heaters, you can efficiently and evenly distribute heat across the surface of the element.
  3. Easy installation: Mounting a silicone heater under the desired element is a straightforward process, making it convenient for catering or other heating needs.
  4. Safety: Silicone heaters are designed to provide safe and reliable heating without compromising the integrity of the stainless steel element.
  5. Cost-effective: These heaters offer an economical solution for achieving the desired heating effect.

Overall, silicone heaters are a reliable and efficient choice for heating stainless steel elements, particularly in situations where a heated surface is required, such as in catering applications.

Silicone heating mats are available with adjustable temperature control or bi-metal for fixed temperature, which both creates an evenly distributed temperature.

Industrial Heating blankets are used in many industries, industrial heating blankets are perfect for ground thawing, curing of materials like composite, repairing of wind rotor blades, altering the viscosity of liquids and for production in both the marine and the aerospace industry and for areas exposed to the elements that may not function below a certain temperature. Digital and Analogue controllers allow the temperature to be set and left to operate independently.
