Flexible Heating Jackets and Pads

Nicropad Heating Jackets are suitable to raise and maintain elevated temperatures of the contents in reaction vessels, storage tanks, tankers and process equipments in industries. They find application in chemical and pharmaceutical industry to heat viscous fluids, cement industry in hopper heating to remove moisture in the flue gases, in packaging industry for free flow of gums and in metallurgical industry for annealing of metals,etc. These are made as per size and shape of the equipment to be heated. This flexible electric heater provides heat from the external surface of the device to be heated. They eliminate high investment and operating costs associated with steam, oil, fire wood & conventional electric heating.


Nicropad heating jackets comprise of flexible heating elements of nichrome wire insulated with fibre glass/quartz/Teflon/silicon extruded, distributed very uniformly on to a fibreglass or quartz cloth carrier. The fibreglass or quartz cloth carrier is tailored to the shape of the vessel to be heated. Eye-lets and laces provided on the panels, ensure a snug fit of heater on the surface being heated, avoiding any air gaps. The heating elements terminate on cold leads, which are connected to the power supply. The other side of the heating jacket is provided with insulation to avoid the heat losses and covered with Teflon coated fibreglass or silicon coated fibreglass cloth to make it waterproof and suitable for outdoor applications.

Feature Details
Uniform heating Every close insulated distrinuted heating element ensures effective and uniform heating.
Highly Efficient Heat is applied on the surface from where heat loss occurs resulting in minimal heat loss.
Easy Maintenance Being external heating system maintenance is possible without the need for costly disturbing shutdowns.
Precise Temperature Control Thermostatic controls associated with heaters enable very precise temperature control with minimal thermal lag.
Adaptability The high flexibility of the carrier material enables the heaters to fit snug on complicated shapes and bends and hence suited to all shapes and sizes.
Long Life The high flexibility also ensures good heating element contact resulting in lower element temperatures and hence long life.
Custom-built Nicropad Heating Jackets are designed to suit individual requirements incorporating cut outs to accommodate any shape and size.
Temperature Range Ambient to 750 Degree Celcius
