Large Capacity Clean Flow Heater from BCE

A compact, fast responding electric heating element for liquids and gases for all clean, fuel cell, bio-med, laboratory, food, and pharmaceutical applications.

- Parts cleaning
- Critical fluid heating
- Solvent replacement
- Biomass extraction
- Bio reclamation
- Semiconductor processing equipment
- Photoresist material

The MCF heaters can be used to heat media in-line with the process flow. The heater is cleaned with IPA and rinsed with DI water and then passivated. This process minimizes contamination of the media being heated. For liquids, the max outlet temperature is driven by the liquid media, for gases the max outlet can be 800°C. The internal element in most cases comes with a built-in thermocouple (K or J), which will monitor the heater and the media temperature. BCE prefers grounded junctions, meaning grounded to the sheath of the internal heater. By having this configuration, the heating element is in direct contact with the media, hence maximum efficiency.

The MCF-Stream was designed in such a way that the delta-T between the ni-chrome internal element and the sheath of the heater is at a minimum. By keeping the delta-T to a minimum the life of the element will be optimal for most applications.

BCE Hi Temperature Puck Heater - 200mm

BCE Hi Temperature Puck Heater - 200mm


Industrial & semiconductor applications require high heat in a centralized location. BCE designed a heater platen with the goal of 900⁰C operation, fast ramp & soak of at least 800⁰C. When tested in our BCE Lab in Hayward California, we were able to push this heater further and achieved upwards of 1,050°C

Ramp Time:
  • Test#1 23°C to 800°C, 29 Min. (without Insulation)
  • Test#2 23°C to 800°C, 13 Min. (with 2" Insulation)
  • Test#3 23°C to 900°C, 17 Min. (with 2” Insulation)
  • Test#4 23°C to 950°C, 18 Min. (with 2” Insulation)
  • Test#5 23°C to 1,000°C,19 Min. (with 2” Insulation)

Temp. Uniformity:

After the heater stabilized from 800⁰C to 950⁰C, the surface thermocouple on the edge to the internal thermocouple (approximately 180⁰ away), there was a 1% to 2% delta.

  • Material: 304 Stainless Steel with Inconel Heat Source
  • Stainless Steel CF or KF flanges of various sizes, with heat sink near heater outlet
  • 200mm Ø x 0.50” Thick
  • Vacuum, He Leak Test available
  • 700VDC, Hi-pot, 1mA current leakage
  • 5mΩ @ 500VDC prior to shipping


Ramped heater from 23°C to 1,000°C in 19 min. under 2” thick ceramic fiber insulation. The heater was held at this temperature for 1 hour, and it intermittently hit 1,050°C.

This video shows a test in atmosphere with no insulation which is less efficient but more interesting to look at.

BCE does not recommend operation above 900C as this can drastically impact the life of the assembly. Furthermore, high-temperature operations should be in a vacuum/oxygen-free environment, and use of insulation is advised.
