The thermodynamics specialist hotset is expanding its range of heating elements with the new Hi-Watty Light aluminum nitride heater, an exceptionally powerful premium product. Designed for high-speed heating and cooling of gases and liquids, this compact ceramic heater is the perfect solution for sophisticated high-tech applications in semiconductor and medical technology, as well as in the automotive and aerospace industries. The efficiency of many fluid technology processes and devices is predominantly based on the fact that the gases or liquids carried in pipes and containers can be heated up and cooled down very quickly. By including the aluminum nitride heater Hi-Watty Light in its component portfolio, hotset now offers a top-class heating element for this task, which both enables ultra-fast heating processes and ensures a very homogeneous heat distribution. As such, product developers and technical buyers in the semiconductor, medical, automotive and aerospace industries, for example, now have access to an innovative and highly efficient alternative to silicone, polyimide or mica heating elements. “Our new ceramic heater is of particular interest to users who adopt particularly innovative approaches in the development and optimization of solutions for thermal management or medium temperature control,” says Key Account Manager Daniel Honsel. Specifically, the Hi-Watty Light is used in applications such as automated semiconductor test systems for automotive engineering or in the context of flip-chip assembly, a high-tech process for contacting microelectronic elements without a housing.
