Measuring Mica Band Heaters

Band Heater Circumference Measurement

When measuring the circumference of custom band heaters, the measurement should be made on the inside surface from Point A to Point B whenever possible.  Also be sure to inform your customer service person of the gap size (space between Point A and Point B).

If  the heater cannot be measured then the barrel circumference should be measured from Point A around to Point A again to determine barrel circumference or barrel can be measured from Point B to Point C to determine Barrel O.D.

Also be sure to inform your customer service person of the gap size that is required.
