Laboratory Heat Tapes
In 1985, HTS/Amptek introduced the revolutionary Duo-Tape® dual-element laboratory insulated heating tape for the first time. Unlike previous heating tapes that only used one heating element, there are two heating elements in all of our Duo-Tape® products. These heating elements weave side-by-side through the silicone insulation, marking an innovative design change – the first in more than 30 years since laboratory heating tapes were first introduced in 1949.
In traditional heating tapes, lead wires were set up on either end of the heating tape, but when we produced the dual-element laboratory insulated tape, both lead wires could be set up on one end of the heating tape. This increases the flexibility and range of the heating tape itself. For example, a dual-element heating tape can be placed radially from a single, central power source, allowing for a simpler configuration of your laboratory equipment, plumbing or other industrial design without needing to leave room for a second lead wire at the terminating end.
Laboratory insulated heating tapes are available in a variety of configurations, including silicone insulated, heavy insulated wide-heavy and high wattage varieties. Our selection of heating tapes can be used in abrasive situations, wet environments and extreme temperature conditions, and are used in industries as diverse as plastics and chemical production, semiconductor manufacture and aerospace, and are also quite common in laboratory and government research settings.
