Cartridge heaters are tube-shaped, heavy-duty, industrial joule heating elements (electrical resistance) used in the process heating industry, usually custom manufactured to a specific watt density, based on its intended application. Cartridge Heaters provide superior heat transfer with uniform temperature and resistance from oxidation and corrosion at high temperatures. Our popular Cartridge heaters are the following design styles: Straight, Right Angle, Flange, 90 Degree, Posts out Both Ends, Post on Same End, and Distributive Wattage.

All other units: +10 percent, -5 percent
Three circumstances where resistance can be measured:
1. Temperature of room before use; nominal ohms are 90 percent of ohm’s law calculation.
2. Temperature of room after use; nominal ohms are 90 percent of ohm’s law calculation.
3. Temperature during use – depending on the application; nominal ohms are 00 percent of ohm’s law.
