Hot-Plates & Glow-Panel Radiators

Thermoplate™ are Hot-Plates above 600°C.

  • Thermoplate™ products and HeatPads™ are rated by the temperature and surface area.
  • Glow-Panels™ are rated by the device power, radiation area and the radiating temperature.

Thermoplate™ and Glow-Panels™

One year warranty on heating elements/heaters on select Thermoplate™ – Hot Plate Models.

Thermoplates™ offer High Life, High Warranty, High Power, High Temperature, High Heat-up Rate and large Hot-plate size availability.   MHI hot plate and glow panel models are specially constructed with thermal shock resistant materials. The optional guided TLID (t/c  included in select TLID models) is offered with most models.  The temperature and power control panel provided with the Thermoplates may be used to set a precise temperature or a profile – read and control functions are included for versatile process programming.  The MHI-DACS system for data acquisition may be used to plot, save or download the data – all with remote monitoring capabilities.

What is a TLID? It is an insulated lid with about 1.5” of space from plate to roof.  Lids have a thermocouple integrated with them.   For large loads, lids provides a canopy that enhances the temperature uniformity.  The TLID comes with an integrated guided mechanism for quick insertion.

MHI offers a variety of specialized surface and radiative heaters.

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 1500°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.
