  • Cast-in extrusion heaters

B&H Tool provides a wide range of top quality extrusion heaters to
support our adjustable center and fixed center crossheads,
and in-line
dies. First, we help you select the right type of heater to match your
heat profile and extrusion requirements. Then, we customize the heater
for a perfect fit with your specific tooling.

Heat and pressure, along with the material being extruded, are critical
factors affecting the extrusion process. To perform properly, extrusion
heaters must optimize laminar flow, and minimize both temperature
and velocity gradients.  B&H takes these issues very seriously. 
For more than 40 years, we have designed and developed extrusion
heaters to match our customers’ specific applications. 

We understand the complex dynamics of wattage, voltage, component
quality and encapsulation:  all B&H extrusion heaters fully envelop the
crosshead. As a result, all B&H extrusion heaters optimize heat transfer
efficiency, provide precise control over the heating process and eliminate
the potential for dead spots.   

Depending on the application, and the temperature profile required,
we specify tubular band, mica band or cast-in extrusion heaters.
Regardless of which is specified, however, a customer purchasing
crosshead assemblies from B&H can be assured of receiving the
best possible extrusion heaters in terms of design, wattage, quality,
price and service life. 

B&H is also the premier aftermarket supplier of extrusion heaters,
offering a full product line for every crosshead we make, and many
competitive crossheads as well.

Customers with constraints, such limited space on the extrusion line,
benefit from our collaborative approach. We work closely with your
production and design engineers to determine the best-possible
configuration. We design the extrusion heater, and make certain
its performance lives up to the tradition of quality craftsmanship
that is behind all B&H extrusion heaters.
