Open Coil Heaters

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

Tutco-Farnam is a leading manufacturer of open coil heaters, specializing in custom engineered heating solutions to fit exacting requirements. We offer a standard line of open coil heaters that can be modified. Tutco-Farnam can also build a completely custom solution.
