Sandvik Thermal Process, Inc. has been supplying original equipment and replacement heating elements to the semiconductor and related industries for the past forty-one (41) years. You will see various rebranding activities in the coming weeks. One imminent change is that Sandvik Thermal Process, Inc. will change its name to Kanthal Thermal Process, Inc.
For all our customer, this will allow us to strengthen our footprint in North America as well as execute on improved quality and lead time. If you have any question please contact Jon Hartmayer, Sales Area Manager NAFTA, Kanthal, tel: 1-209-728-7971
Below you will find specifications for products that will go to market under the Kanthal® brand.
The Fibrothal heating modules operate in a range of applications from solar and semiconductor manufacturing to electrical heating processes.
Lightweight construction of Fibrothal heating modules allows for low thermal mass and thermal conductivity due to the ceramic fiber. The simple design provides fast install, quick switching between different processes and easy replacement.

Furnace Insulation/Energy Kit
The insulation used in process furnaces is crucial to ensuring the proper distribution and control of heat in the furnace. Our insulation is available in soft, hard and panel form for any size process tube to provide consistent insulation at the load and source ends of the furnace. The energy kit comprises tube collars and heat blocks and we also provide hard coated end blocks and tube supports for applications requiring reduced powdering and extended lifetime. Kanthal® also offers custom applications so please contact the factory and we can direct towards the best suited solutions.
