Electric Heating Element Application and Engineering Reference Guide

Applying and specifying electric heating elements can be complicated. Make the job easier by downloading our handy reference guide (courtesy of Backer Hotwatt). The reference guide includes many of the electrical, mechanical, and physical properties you'll need to know when calculating wattage, evaluating maximum watt densities, and selecting proper heater placement.
