Advantages of Backer Hotwatt Range
Rapid heat transfer
Backer Hotwatt heaters are swaged, reducing the diameter of the metal sheath and compacting the insulation. This insures rapid heat transfer and holds the coil in position for forming. 
Various terminations
Formed heating elements can be supplied with a six optional terminations: post, lead wire, pin, hermetic seal, tab and quick connect. Sheath materials are available in stainless steel, steel, copper, and incoloy. 
Custom shapes
Tubular heaters can be manufactured into virtually any shape, depending on the size and diameter of the element
Robust and long-lasting
With built-in resistance to shock, vibration, corrosion, and temperature extremes, Backer Hotwatt elements are designed for an extended product life.
