US FIRM Durex Industries has recently launched its new SENTINEL Moulded Foam Silicone Rubber Heater. In semiconductor equipment applications the heaters offer the advances of improved thermal efficiency, higher process temperatures, and reduced system cost.
The Illinois-based company developed this advanced heater technology, because Semiconductor Equipment Industry engineers need thermal solutions that meet specifications for next generation manufacturing processes, while reducing thermal system costs. The SENTINEL Pump Line Heaters are available in standard I.D. size diameters of 1.5, 2.0, and 4.0 inch straight sections, elbows, tees, reducers, and flanges. The heaters can also be easily designed to the dimensions of valves, regulators, and other gas delivery and pump line components.
The heaters are also available using structured silicone rubber heater and extruded silicone insulation technology. Structured heater technology is used in many small ¼- to ¾-inch diameter gas delivery line applications and complex low volume applications.
