PTC heater in aluminum cup for vaporizer

Heat generation, heat control and safety protection all in the same reliable package

PTC heating elements have a unique resistance to temperature curve which results in the resistance decreasing as heat is drawn away. PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) has an extreme positive temperature coefficient over a very narrow range of temperatures. The result of this extreme PTC attribute is a heating element which self-regulates at a preset temperature and varies its wattage automatically in order to maintain that preset temperature.

The patented Eichenauer PTC heater has many unique characteristics that allow our heaters to outperform the competition.  Let our engineers assist you in designing the right element for your application.

Please note: Eichenauer Inc. will be closed from December 20 through January 3 for our regularly scheduled winter shutdown and inventory. Please plan your orders accordingly.
