Metallic heating elements

We design and manufacture metallic heating elements capable of operating at up to 1425°C. Depending on the application, we use Kanthal® Iron-Chromium-Aluminium or Nickel-Chromium alloys to make the elements. We can manufacture these elements in various forms, including spiral, porcupine and meander elements.


FeCrAl Alloys

The use of FeCrAl based heating elements can result in significant savings as these are lighter and have excellent element lifespan. Depending on the grade, these elements are capable of operating at up to 1 425°C.

GradeMaximum continuous operating temperature
Kanthal® D1 300°C
Kanthal® AF1 300°C
Kanthal® A11 400°C
Kanthal® APM1 425°C


NiCr Alloys

NiCr based heating elements offer higher tensile strength and good resistance to corrosion. Depending on the grade, these elements are capable of operating at up to 1 250°C.

GradeMaximum continuous operating temperature
Nikrothal® 401 100°C
Nikrothal® 601 150°C
Nikrothal® 801 200°C
