Swaged Cartridge Heaters (HotRods)

The engineers at Backer Marathon have developed a swaged cartridge heater that exceeds the performance and durability of others in the industry.

Through refinements in the swaging process, specially designed cores, careful selection of magnesium oxide fill, nickel chromium resistance wire, stainless steel tubing, and carefully controlled production processes, HotRod cartridge heaters routinely outperform other heaters in difficult applications.

HotRod cartridge heaters are available in a wide variety of diameters and configurations. Choose from our 14,000+ stock heaters for immediate delivery or let the engineers at Backer Marathon design a unique cartridge heater for your special application. Standard manufacturing times are normally less than 2 weeks.

Cartridge Heater Watt Density

  • The tighter the hole fit, the better. Loose fit equals poor heat transfer and shorter heater life.
  • Clearance is determined by taking the hole diameter and subtracting the heater diameter. 
  • Cycling reduces heater life and high cycling applications should use lower numbers. 
  • Please consult the following table for the maximum allowable watt density for heating metals. 

Formula 

Watt density is calculated with the following formula:

Watt Density = Wattage / Heated Length x Diameter x 3.14
