Kanthal® unlocks green future for aerospace testing

Heating specialist Kanthal®, Part of Sandvik Group, has launched a clean, green and powerful heating solution for modern-day test benches in the aerospace testing industry. The electric system heats components to 1100 °C (2012 °F) with zero emissions.

The Kanthal Flow Heater enables testing professionals to increase the temperature of gas flows from the standard 850 °C to 1100 °F (1562 °C to 2012 °F) with zero emissions at point of use.

“We believe that higher temperatures and accurate conditions will become essential in aerospace testing. Increasing the requirements on new materials and components helps to meet rising expectations on durability,” says Michael Kramer, Manager Business Development/Technology & Innovation at Kanthal.

The higher temperature of 1100 °C (2012 °F) facilitates more rigorous testing of new materials used in increasingly demanding designs. By using electrical power instead of burner technology, the Kanthal Flow Heater complies with future regulations for workplace health and safety and environmental sustainability, and raises accuracy of test conditions to new levels.

“This electrical heating solution matches the load capacity and performance of burners and is a pollution-free alternative,” Kramer explains.

The Kanthal Flow Heater will be demonstrated in booth E94 (Sandvik booth), hall 4, at the International Paris Air Show 2017 at Exhibition Center of Le Bourget, Paris, on 19 – 25 June, 2017.
