Through research, development and innovation, Thermal Circuits provides effective solutions incorporating conductive surface heaters, convective air/gas heaters, and infrared heater assemblies.

Case Study:

Convection For Heat Cure In Medical Appliances Bring Healthy Solutions

(excerpt)
...the tightly wound spirals of heat-concentrated wire kept failing. Compounding this reliability issue was the fact that the wire coil acted like a spring. When the element broke, it would touch an electrically conductive component within the oven. Not only would the heater short out, but the reliability failure became a hazard to the ovens operator...

Case Study:

Etched-foil elements provide significant advantages in sensitive applications

(excerpt)
...Etched-foil elements are able to operate at very high densities due to the larger surface area covered by the foil track. The element is created by acid etching a circuit in resistance alloy foil. This process ensures excellent repeatability and allows the design of complex heat distribution patterns within the heater area.
