Ceramic Strip Heaters

Backer Marathon ceramic strip heaters offer high temperature performance in a rugged, contamination resistant stainless steel sheath. They are bolt-in replacements for Chromalox, GE, Watlow, and other channel strip heaters.

They are available with either an aluminized steel sheath (for temperatures up to 800°F) or a stainless steel sheath (for temperatures up to 1200°F), with or without mounting tabs, and can be manufactured with post terminals or a variety of lead options.
