Disilicide-molybdenum heaters (MoSi2) are designed for both continuous and periodic operation in a neutral medium, vacuum and oxidizing environment up to 1800°С.
One of the unique advantages of a disilicide-molybdenum heater is the formation a protective film of silicon dioxide on the surface, which prevents further oxidation of the heater material.
Also, disilicide-molybdenum heaters have the following advantages:
- increase in resistance with increasing temperature, which provides faster heating;
- constant resistance during the whole service life, which makes it easier to replace old heaters with new ones;
- high load at high temperatures, which allows heating to a higher temperature on a small volume of the furnace.
- sintering of ferrites, technical ceramics and refractories;
- glass industry;
- growing crystals etc.
