Kanthal is a world-leading brand for products and services in the area of industrial heating technology and resistance materials.

Kanthal Globar SiC heating elements

Silicon carbide (SiC) electric heating elements for element temperatures up to 1625°C (2927°F), available in a wide variety of standard sizes and geometries, or in customized designs to meet the specific needs of various processes and equipment.

Kanthal Globar SiC heating elements are capable of high power output, and may be mounted either vertically or horizontally. Because the element material remains rigid even at the maximum operating temperatures, no special supports are required, which simplifies the design of the equipment.

Standard grades

Grade Description
Kanthal
Globar SD
Elements suitable for most applications in which silicon carbide elements are used. Kanthal Globar SD SiC heating elements feature hot zones of recrystallised silicon carbide, optimized for resistance to oxidation and common process gases. Available in rod or multi-leg designs.
Kanthal
Globar HD
SiC heating elements designed for the most challenging applications where conventional silicon carbide elements are unsuitable. Kanthal Globar HD SiC heating elements feature hot zones of high density, low permeability, reaction-bonded silicon carbide, which is highly resistant to oxidation, and to chemical attack by process volatiles and reactive atmospheres. Available in rod or multi-leg designs.
Kanthal
Globar SG and SR
Tubular spiralled SiC elements made from Kanthal Globar HD material.

Float glass heating elements

The Kanthal program includes several types of silicon carbide (SiC) heating elements for float baths used in the manufacture of soda-lime flat glass for architectural, automotive and solar-glass applications. Special float elements for flat panel display glass are also supplied.
