What is a cartridge heater with thermocouple?

A cartridge heater comes in all kinds of different sizes and shapes. And while there are a lot of companies making cartridge heaters with thermocouples none does it quite as we do. We have been providing our clients with products that last and hold up even in rugged conditions. All our cartridge heaters with thermocouples are swagged (highly compact), allowing them to be more effective and efficient than anything else in the market.

Custom Cartridge Heaters

Cartridge heaters with thermocouples are used for heating the surface directly. But like most components, they occasionally fail due to contamination, moisture, and fit. The best thing to do in such a scenario is to replace your heater with a new one. For this, our customer service agent will hold a consultation with you. You will discuss the problem in detail. This allows our agents to understand the scope of your project and helps them find you find the best replacement cartridge heater for your equipment.

Cartridge heaters come in different sizes and voltages. There are medium and high-watt options, all with varying heat intensities and applications.

There are complex formulas used to determine the watt, density, and fit needed for each application. Manufacturers also need to calculate the Quality, Rating, and Size needed as well as the fit. This is the most challenging part of customizing cartridge heaters.

Customizing your cartridge heater with a thermocouple

Some of the customizable things on a cartridge heater include the lead wire types, mounting options, lead options, end seal options, and even the built-in thermocouple.  This thermocouple can be attached to the inside or to the middle of the cartridge heater.

Cartridge heaters with a thermocouple on board are more sensitive to temperature changes and will turn on and off automatically. They are used to heat metal components (in a tool and die) and water among other applications.

If you do not have an in-house heating engineer, we can help. We do all the complex calculations for you to determine which cartridge heater best suits your application. We also offer custom-designed solutions in case you can’t find something off the shelf for your particular application.

Rama Corporation has been in the heater business for over 70 years. We are dedicated to our industry and understand it well.  This makes us a great resource for finding the perfect heater for your application.
