Thermoplate™ Features

MHI Thermoplates™ are an industrial grade, high power, high temperature hot plate capable of reaching temperatures of 1400°C within 4 seconds after initially reaching full power. Ideal for use as a laboratory hot plate. Thermoplates™ feature a stainless steel construction and electronic controls. Thermoplates™ are offered with quartz or ceramic tops, both exhibiting excellent uniformity.

General Information
  • Radiative Power: High power relative to other hot plates available (up to 7 kW for Thermoplate).  Please request quote.
  • Temperature:  Up to 1400°C depending on model.
  • Construction:  Stainless steel construction.  See pictures below for display of complex ceramics mated for high temperature and thermal expansion considerations.
  • 4 Second heat-up rate after reaching full power.
  • Sleek Quartz or Radiative Ceramic top for easy cleaning and rapid heat up. Special 1400°C tops- please contact MHI.
  • Spiral and other elements give extremely uniform temperature distribution.
  • Special high uniformity RTP heaters are also available. 
  • Independently locatable control electronics shown below.
  • MHI is the leader for calibration of the device to process for all Thermoplates.

Internal features of the Thermoplate construction include combinations of special ceramics and metals with the UltraSpiral heating

element as shown in pictures below.  Choice of tops (closed and open) up to 1800°C.  Please contact MHI for possibilities.

HeatPad™ Microheater


HeatPad™ Microheater

HeatPad™ Microheaters are classified as semi-finished modules, which needs to be installed only by certified electricians who are congnizant of the dangers that come from exposed electrical and thermal systems.

Please do not hesitate to have your electrician contact MHI. HeatPad™ Microheaters are a small scale spot heater.

The HeatPad™ is often used as a localized or substrate heater due to the small size.

Using around 100 watts, the HeatPad™ is highly efficient.  HeatPads™ feature integrated thermocouples.

GlowPanel™


GlowPanel™ Radiators.  Rapid Heat-up Rate. 

Glow Panels are designed for heat flux.  Please discuss with MHI.  Also please review Heat Flux Calculator.

GlowPanels are designed to provide Heat Flux type process objectives.  Such objectives require both experience and previous calibration experience.  MHI can help with both. Please discuss procedures with MHI.

Power Rating Conversion

  2 kW = 6,829 BTU/hr

90,000 BTU/hour = 26.4 kiloWatts (kW)

The radiation intensity increases with temperature 

A faster heat-up and drying results from a higher temperature and higher power

Customer Feedback

Hot plate:
“...experience was that the hot plate center would get to temperature first then over time the edges would come up to temperature and be uniform. I believe once steady state was reached the uniformity was +/- 2 or 3C."

Please call MHI on details and full explanation. The uniformity depends on the thermal environment and other factors.
