General Design Tips
Use this information as a guide only. The finished element should be thoroughly tested to verify that the rise in resistance with temperature has been properly accounted for.
If additional technical info on designing heating elements is desired, please request more design info from our sales dept at firstname.lastname@example.org
Terminate elements by brazing, welding, or spot welding if possible. Pressure joints may be used but there is a possibility of poor contact due to yielding of the clamping device. In such a case, two nuts used to clamp the element are better than one alone.
Allow room in your design for expansion and contraction of the element.
