DESCRIPTION
Silicone Rubber Fiberglass Insulated
Heaters can improve heat transfer
and speed warm-ups where controlled
heating is required in confined areas.
Two circuit designs are available:
etched foil or wire wound. Heaters
with etched foil designed elements
are available where the length
or width dimension is less than
254 mm (10"). All other heaters
where both the length and the width
dimensions exceed 254 mm (10")
use the wire-wound element design.
Effect of wattage density (at 115V):
gentle warming is best done with
2.5 W/in2. A good all-purpose unit is
the 5 W/in2. Rapid warm-up and high
temperature are achieved with the
10 W/in2; however, temperature must
be controlled as the safe maximum
operating temperature limit of
232°C (450°F).
Two general styles are covered in
this manual. Round silicone rubber
heaters and rectangular silicone
rubber heaters. All part numbers and
total wattage for each heater are listed
in specification sheet of SRFRA/
SRFGA Series.
ROUND SILICONE RUBBER
HEATERS
Styles are available from 3 to 12"
diameters. The part number scheme
is as follows:
• SRFRA-[ ]/* for those heaters without the pressure sensitive adhesive.
• SRFRA-[ ]/*-P for those heaters with
the pressure sensitive adhesive.
Where [ ] is the diameter of the heater
and * is the watt density.
NOTES: Heaters with pressure
sensitive adhesive are not available
at 10 W/in2. Maximum operating
temperature is 149ºC (300º F).
Examples:
6" round heater with 2.5 W/in2
wattage density, without pressure
sensitive adhesive has the part
number SRFRA-6/2.
TM
8” round heater with 5 W/in2
wattage density, with pressure
sensitive adhesive has the part
number SRFRA-8/5-P.
RECTANGULAR SILICONE
RUBBER HEATERS
Styles are available from 1" width
by 1" length to 12" width by 48"
length. More specifically, the length
varies from the smallest width
dimension increasing by 1 inch to
12", and jumps to 18", 24", 30",
36", 42", and 48".
NOTES: Some sizes of heaters
do not come in all lengths listed
above. For details, refer to The
Specification sheet of SRFRA/
SRFGA Series lists the total
wattage for each heater. The part
number scheme is as follows:
• SRFRGA-[X) []/* for those
heaters without the pressure
sensitive adhesive.
• SRFRGA-[X] [ ]/*-P for those
heaters with the pressure sensitive
adhesive.
where [X] is the width of the
heater, [ ] is the length of the
heater, and * is the watt density.
NOTES: Heaters with pressure
sensitive adhesive are not
available at 10 W/in2.
The maximum operating
temperature is 149ºC (300ºF).
Examples:
Smallest heater 1" wide x 5" long
with a wattage density of 10 W/in2
and no pressure sensitive
adhesive (not available in 2.5 W/in2
or 5 W/in2) has the part number of
SRFGA-105/10.
1" W x 48" L heater with 5 W/in2
wattage density with pressure
sensitive adhesive has the part
number of SRFG-148/5-P.
2" W x 8" L heater with 10 W/in2
wattage density without pressure
sensitive adhesive has the part
number of SRFG-208/10.
6" W x 42" L heater with 2.5 W/in2
wattage density with pressure
sensitive adhesive has the part
number of SRFGA-642/2-P.
INSTALLATION AND
OPERATION CAUTION!
Use a method of temperature
control (e.g., thermostat,
thermocouple and temperature
controller, or variable voltage
transformer) to prevent heaters
from exceeding maximum
operating temperature ratings.
Place temperature sensor close
enough to the heater to sense
heater temperature.
1. D
O NOT immerse heaters in
liquids.
2. D
O NOT operate heaters at a
voltage higher than the specified
or rated voltage.
Heaters CAN be operated at the
rated voltage of 115 VAC or lower.
In order to determine the actual
wattage developed at applied
voltages lower than the rated
voltage, use the following formula:
PA= PR x VA2
VR2
where: PR = rated wattage; PA =
actual wattage; VR = rated voltage
and VA = actual voltage
3. DO NOT cut, punch holes in or
otherwise mishandle heaters.
4. AVOID exposing heaters to
chemicals, acids, alkalies, oils,
fluids or other substances that
could ignite or cause damage to
the heater.
5. DO NOT insulate heaters unless
adequate measures are taken to
control heater temperature.
6. DO NOT leave heater operating
unattended unless adequate
controls are installed to insure
safety.
7. Heaters can be bent around
curved surfaces; however,
DO NOT exceed minimum
bending radius.
8. Exercise care in attaching heaters
to flat or curved surfaces. Heaters can
be attached by mechanical
clamping, by using factory applied
pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA),
or with a thin layer of RTV. Make
sure that the entire heater is in contact
with the surface with no air pockets
trappedunderneath. This is especially
important for high watt density
heaters, i.e., heaters with a watt
density of 10 watts/square inch, to
prevent heater failure. DO NOT
overlap heaters.
9. Heaters must be attached to an
appropriate heat sink and should
NOT be mounted free standing in air.
10. Make sure heaters are installed
and used by qualified personnel.
DO NOT attempt to repair
damaged heaters.
