  • Heating Vehicles with Infrared Heating Elements

    Electric heating elements can provide a wide range of heating products for uses in many industrial settings, from heating ovens, to warming factories for human comfort, to drying paint, and many other uses. Many automotive manufacturers also use electric heating elements as the heating source inside the vehicles that they manufacturer. Electric heating has been the heating type of choice in vehicles for many years because it is easier to install electric-powered heating in mobile vehicles than other forms of heating. One new trend in vehicle heating is the use...

  • Preparing Your Heater for Cool Weather

    To stay warm during cool weather, you must ensure the heating element inside your heater is functioning at the highest efficiency. You can do this by checking the system each fall to ensure that the system is working properly and will last through the cold weather season. Addressing any issues with your heating element and heater system before cold weather sets in is the best way to stay warm during cooler months. Try some of the following steps to ensure your heater works properly throughout the entire heating season: Inspect...

  • The History of Electric Heating

    Even though it seems like heaters have been around forever, this is not the case. In fact, just about 100 years ago only a select few households had central heating systems in their homes. However, the history of the electric heating element goes even further back. Alexander Graham Bell invented the first electric heater in the late 1800s. He created a metal box with high-powered light bulbs inside that radiated heat into the room. Needless to say, this heater was dangerous and inefficient at filling a room with heat. It...

  • The Future of Electric Heating Elements

    Traditional fossil fuels are limited. There are only so many trees, so much oil, and so much natural gas in the world. Once these sources are depleted, civilization will have to come up with new fuel sources for our manufacturing processes. Today, scientists and other experts are researching the potential to create electricity from renewable resources, such as the sun and wind. Once renewable energy sources become mainstream, electric energy sources will become the main source of energy production in the world. What does this mean for electric heating coil...

Industry Information

Electric Heating Elements

Electric heating elements are heat generation tools that convert an electric current into heat. Electric currents can be transformed into heat when they encounter resistance in a conductive medium. Highly electrically-resistant metals transform electricity to heat very effectively. They are made into tubular heating elements, immersion heating elements, heating coils and all kinds of other heating elements that generate heat through the transformation of electricity.

Because of the wide variety of electrically conductive materials in existence, and because of the versatile properties of many of those materials, electrical heating elements are available in a wide variety of compositions and configurations. This diversity has attracted the attention of professionals throughout industry and commerce. Today, electrical heating elements are among the most popular heating element varieties. In industrial contexts, electric heating elements can be found in all kinds of drying and processing equipment. In commercial and institutional settings such as in laboratories and hospitals, electric heating elements can be found in heat sterilizing equipment. Many consumer products also involve the use of electric heating elements; just a few examples include dish washers, toasters, ovens and other small appliances. Each heating element is specially suited to its application.

Electric heating elements can be made from many different heat conducting materials, but they are most commonly made from metals. Some electric heating element varieties are capable of generating temperatures of up to 1,300° F. Depending on the design, an electric heating element can heat other objects through direct contact, through radiation or through convection; different methods are appropriate for different applications. Electric heating elements are usually combined with housings, control systems or other complementary equipment, but some electric heating elements can feature nothing but a resistive coil and connection media for power input. Often an electric heating element will be combined with equipment that helps to distribute the heat it generates. For example, a standard hard-wired electric heater can have a central heating element that is combined with fans that force the hot air in order to increase the affected range of the heater. Regardless of an electric heating element’s size and heat generation capacity, care should be taken to ensure that the equipment has been correctly paired to its application. Not only will this improve the performance and effectiveness of the equipment, but it will reduce the risk of accidents like fires and short circuits that are caused by improper equipment use.
