Food Steam Cabinet

Tutco Farnam was challenged with improving a food steaming cabinet. Our engineers met the challenge. Our custom solution replaces the tubular heaters previously being used. Our mica surface heater provides intimate contact covering over 100% of the surface area. This assures that the heat transfer to the pan is very efficient and even with low heat losses. We designed a custom surface heater that mounts with less cost, doesn't have hot spots, performs better, and will give long life.

See more custom examples like this one on the Custom Mica Surface Heaters page.
