Backer Marathon Heater's offers several cartridge heater styles with options for applications up to 1600°F. Choose from one of our thousands of in stock cartridge heater models or let our engineers design a custom heater for your application.
When heating is required around a nozzle or a pipe, a band heater is the optimal solution for your heating needs. Our current band products are separated in two types: Mica Band Heaters and Starflex Band Heaters. Each type offers different temperature tolerances as well as flexibility and construction options.
When highly focused heat is required and a very low profile is imperative, coil heaters are the best cost-effective option. Coil heaters may be used to concentrate the heat on specific segments or the coil may be spread to equalize the temperature across the object to be heated.
Backer Marathon strip heaters are manufactured to your custom specifications. Mica Strip heaters offer a low profile option for applications of up to 1200°F. Ceramic Strip heaters offer a rugged construction for application of up to 1200°F. They are direct bolt in replacements for popular brands.
Backer Marathon flexible heaters provide outstanding performance in applications up to 450°F under a variety of operating conditions. Properly applied silicone rubber heater life routinely exceeds 10 years. Silicone rubber has a high dielectric strength, is flame retardant, and non-toxic. Design versatility permits special heat profiles allowing zones of higher or lower heat concentration and their flexible construction makes them easy to install on a variety of surfaces.
Backer Marathon Nozzle Heater Standard Features include; oxidation resistant metal sheath, protective sleeving where leads exit the heater, stainless steel clamping strap with barrel nuts and 6-32 screw, 10" High temperature leads with our without SS braid covering. 1" to 3" diameters and 1" to 6" widths are available. Backer Marathon Nozzle Heaters are also available in low profile wedgelock construction.
Backer Marathon air heaters feature an open coil of high temperature resistance wire electrically isolated in a stainless steel sheath. Because the air being heated passes directly over the resistance wire, maximum heat transfer efficiency is achieved. Backer Marathon brand air heaters are used for heat staking, plastic welding, laminating, drying, heat sealing, and any other operation where air needs to be heated up 1000° F.
Backer Marathon is a distributor for HotSet flexible tubular heaters. HotSet flexible tubular heaters make the heating of complex platens, shapes, and machines possible. Simplify your machine design while reducing maintenance time and cost by using HotSet flexible heaters.
Mineral Insulated Thermocouples are manufactured at Backer Marathon to address your higher temperature requirements. We stock hundreds of different models and offer quick turnaround, usually 48 hours or less, on custom designed and manufactured units.
Backer Marathon delivers low cost industrial thermocouples and RTDs available in a variety of configurations an types. Types J, K, T, 2 wire, and 3 wire RTDs are standard. Other types are available. We have a large inventory of stock thermocouples for immediate delivery.
Backer Marathon is pleased to present thermocouple accessories and extensions as part of our line of premium temperature sensors. Backer Marathon has hundreds of different models in stock ready for immediate delivery.
Distributed wattage heaters are often used in platens and sealing bars. Wattage is usually increased on the ends of the heater to compensate for end losses and maintain a constant temperature along the heated product.
Specify desired lengths in inches and wattages in percentage.
Built-in thermocouples can be of type "J" or "K", grounded or ungrounded, and attached either at the disc end or middle of the cartridge heater.
Thermocouples lead wire is 24 ga., solid, and unless otherwise specified, thermocouple leads are the same length as the power leads.
When ordering, please specify type, location, grounded or ungrounded (if not specified, then we will supply grounded), and insulation material (if not specified, then we will supply fiberglass).
Dual Voltage cartridge heaters can be engineered to operate at different voltage ratings. To order, specify dual voltage and voltage requirements.
Individually controlled heat zones give flexibility when needing to control the heat along the length of a cartridge heater. These zones are commonly used in sealing bar applications.
Dual Zone are commonly constructed with 4 power leads.
Three Zone heaters are constructed with (6) color coded leads. Yellow leads indicate disk end zone. Black leads indicate center zone. Red leads indicate lead end zone. Please consult factory for available diameters. Specify length and wattages of desired zones.
Backer Marathon Cartridge Heaters are available for three phase delta for high amperage applications. Certain restrictions apply.
HotRod cartridge heaters are also available with an electrical termination on each end.
Heaters can be made with lead wires, straight pins, or screw terminals.
