Flexible Heaters

Flexible HeatersFlexible Heaters are capable of operating with excellent performance under many adverse conditions. The low thermal mass of flexible heaters makes them ideal for use in applications where the space for placing a heater is limited and weight is a concern. Southern Heat offers Heating Tape, Silicone Rubber Heaters, Kapton Heaters, and more.

Heating Tape

Heating Tape ​

Heating Tape can be directly wrapped around tubes, pipes or vessels placing heat exactly where it is needed. The outer aluminum sheath spreads heat evenly over the entire surface of the tape and also reflects heat back onto the load. The end result is a highly efficient heating source with maximum heat being transferred to the desired material. Types of Heating Tape include adhesive backed, heavy insulated, and dual insulated heating tape.


Silicone Rubber Heater

Silicone Rubber Heaters​

Silicone Rubber Heaters are thin, flexible, moisture and chemical resistant electric heaters that can be used up to 500°F/260°C intermittent and 392°F/200°C continuous. They are physically resistant to moisture, ozone, fungus and radiation. They are manufactured in two constructions: Wire Wound and Etched Foil. Wire wound elements consist of the resistance wire wound on a fiberglass cord for support and stability. Etched foil heaters are made with a thin metal foil (.001”) as the resistance element.


Kapton Heater

Kapton Heaters​

Kapton Heaters are thin, light weight and are suitable for harsh environments, vacuum applications and can be used up to 392°F. The etched foil heater has exceptional heat transfer compared to wire wound elements, due to its large flat surface area. It can deliver more uniform heat profiles with higher watt densities, providing longer operating heater life. It can also be zoned with distributed wattage or separate heating circuits to compensate for load variations. The etched foil process is recommended for small size heaters in large quantities.
