Silicon carbide (SiC) heating elements are non-metal high temperature heating element made from high-quality green silicon carbide. Compared with metal electric heating elements, this element has the advantages of high temperature, oxidation resistance, corrosion resistance, long life, and convenient installation and maintenance.
The operating temperature of SiC heating elements can go up to 1550°C in an oxidizing atmosphere, or inert gas atmospheres of argon or helium. in a reducing atmosphere, the maximum obtainable operating temperature is 1350°C. Nowadays, they are widely used in various high-temperature electric furnaces and electric heating equipment in magnetic materials, powder metallurgy, lithium ion battery components, ceramics, glass, metallurgy and machinery industries.
