Open coil heaters are air heaters that expose the maximum heating element surface area directly to an airflow. The choice of alloy, dimensions, and wire gauge are strategically chosen to create a custom solution based on an application’s unique needs. Basic application criteria to consider include temperature, airflow, air pressure, environment, ramp speed, cycling frequency, physical space, available power, and heater life.
