Will a cal rod work for your application? Possibly. Will it be the cheapest solution? In the short term, probably. But if you look at the big picture – the total cost of the system versus the cost of a single component – the answer may be very different.

Conventional heating elements, like cal rods or metal foil heaters, are often heavy in weight and distribute heat inconsistently. They require power that’s always on, resulting in high energy requirements, ongoing maintenance and, therefore, a much greater cost during the system’s total lifetime.

Better Options

Need a specialized system that’s flexible and lightweight? Provides uniform heat in a window of +/-2 degrees? How about one that heats quickly with accelerated conductivity? Or reduces time-to-temperature from minutes to just fractions of a second?

EGC engineers and manufactures thermal management solutions that feature these and other valuable benefits. Read on to learn more about each unique product and how it can be used within your own equipment and systems to generate, measure and control the delivery of heat:

  • PTC heater technology
    Provides heat where demand is needed, without secondary controls and ancillary temperature sensors

  • NTC heaters
    Provides even heat efficiently with lightweight rapid response technology
  • NTC heaters with patented control methodologies 
    Features all the advantages of NTC heaters plus wiring that’s simple eliminating problems associated with sensing finite locations

  • Thermal batteries (ITB)
    Stays hot longer without applied power when heated with PTC, NTC, inductive or conventional technologies
  • Custom solutions
    Meets your specific needs using one or more of the above products

Still considering that old-school conventional solution? Or maybe you’ve already been won over by the types of thermal management solutions that EGC has to offer? Either way, contact us at 440-285-5835 or We can discuss the nuts and bolts of your project and guide you toward a solution that’s best, long-term.
