Fibrothal® GSO

Fibrothal® GSO

The Fibrothal® GSO is a vacuum formed heater module with Kanthal® strip heating elements. The strip heater design gives high power, rapid ramping at low temperatures and very good heat distribution. Support jigs are not required.

Fibrothal® GSO is used in many different applications including continuous furnaces, powder sintering, brazing and glass annealing.


The Fibrothal® GSO heater module has a unique support structure for fixing in tough conditions which contributes to a vastly improved service life and provides power loadings up to 100 kW/m2. The module offers high temperature uniformity while being flexible in design (i.e. vertical, horizontal, wall). Insulation thickness is very slim (min. 45 t) while retaining mechanical strength. Line voltage applied (50V/100V/200V/380V)

What are thermocouples?

Thermocouples are instruments for measuring temperature, based on the thermoelectric effect – a voltage is generated when two dissimilar metals are joined, which is proportional to the temperature difference. The voltage is called Electromotive Force (EMF) or the Seebeck voltage, discovered by German scientist Thomas Seebeck. Temperature can be further calculated from EMF.
