Tube Heaters

Thermo-Stone’s patented Tube Heater Technology (#6,376,816) allows for applying a thin film coating directly on the surface of a non-conductive tubular substrate.Thermo-Stone’s thin film technology allows for a larger heated area, when compared to standard heater technology, which eliminates hot and cold spots.This feature allows for tighter temperature controls and lower power consumption.
