Flexible, Etched Foil Heaters for Avionics, Aerospace, and
Thermal Circuits supplies components through Prime or OEM subcontractors
to the military market that can be incorporated into their own
assemblies. We also work with military brokers, government agencies,
and overhaul and repair depots to supply replacement etched foil
heater and heater assembly components for existing equipment.
This heater assembly, installed in shipboard moisture separators, prevents
sea spray from freezing and obstructing the air intake systems of a destroyer's
turbine engines in cold weather.
Thermal Circuits manufactures anti-icing, etched foil element heaters that are
molded from Thermal Circuits produced rubber elastomers. The assembly shown
is incorporated into silo covers to enable missile deployment in extreme cold.
In military applications, these heater circuits are etched foil
elements laminated in caustic resistant films, such as Teflon®, Kapton®, silicone rubber,
EPDM rubber, or nylon electrical insulations; or encapsulated in inorganic
mica sheet dielectrics. ThinFilm Thermal Circuits heaters weave between rows
of battery cells. Rubber heaters line inside walls and floors of battery boxes.
Rigid sheet heaters fit vertically between rows of cells. A Teflon® insulated
etched foil heated cell stack is shown. Heavy duty constructions withstand
high impact and heavy weight. Our battery heaters fulfill a wide range of
requirements including MIL specs, vibration, chafing, chemicals, heat and
