Flat heating rods F12 and F16

Highly compressed flat heating rods made of high-alloy stainless steels or steel in A-class quality, with flat oval cross-section, available in straight or curved design based on customer requirements with various connection types.


  • High operational reliability and service life thanks to a consistently homogeneous insulation made of the purest magnesium oxide in A-class.
  • High-quality tube shell qualities with highly compressed insulation material for even the harshest operating conditions
  • Tube shell temperatures up to 750°C
  • Large surface area, resulting in high performance per unit of length
  • Profiles F12 and F16 (5.3 x 13.2 and 7 x 17 mm)
  • Manufactured lengths up to 6 m
  • Single- or double-sided, double-pole or three-phase current connection
  • Very good heat transfer thanks to large contact surfaces
  • SEV certified (EN 60335-1 CENELEC)


Starting product for many heating applications. The Backer ELC flat heaters can be used universally in all industries.
