Electric Heating Elements
National Element, Inc. is proud to present FireLine, our most recent invention in electric heating technology. National Element Inc. holds Seven (7) U.S. Patents for heating element design. The leader in heating element design and manufacturing. FireLine design promises to revolutionize electric heating with high quality, high power density, excellent hot strength, and low watt density. FireLine is a patented design by our engineers, with some unique features. The heating element needed good hot strength, lightweight efficient, and easy to install.
Primary feature of the FireLine ribbon element is the shaped strength of the ribbon cross-section forming into the rigid channel shapes. The material is extremely rigid when crimped into this unique shape, which gives the element the extra staying power of much more expensive heavy cross-section elements used for the last sixty years. Incorporating a light cross-section with the crimped channel shape makes for strong improvement in hot strength, a low density for heating efficiency, with added benefit of lower cost. Lightweight density is very important to any furnace manufacture or engineer given the challenge of high efficiency furnaces lined with fiber insulation. The higher the mass, the higher the fuel cost. Radiant ribbon elements for your glass benders come in many sizes and shapes. National Element, Inc manufacturing for 39 years is the largest source for quality electric heating elements, ribbon, coil, and float lehr trays. NIKChrome® Alloys are in stock known for out-standing dependability. National Element, Inc. meets these requirements and more. We stock NIKChrome® Nickel-Chrome alloys, Iron-Chrome-Aluminum alloys, molybdenum and ceramic accessories on the shelf. Our line of heating elements is second to none.
National Element Inc. is the source of Resistance NIKChrome® Alloys. NIKChrome® "A" (80 nickel-20 chrome) When you need heating elements, you need them fast, and you need them made of high quality alloys from a quality supplier.
