Design: -

High quality mineral insulated, tubular, incoloy sheathed resistors are mounted into a powder coated galvanised sheet metal enclosure.

An integral impeller fan provides forced air cooling and a thermal airflow switch and fan motor interlock ensure that the elements are not energised without adequate airflow.

A terminal box is provided which houses all switchgear, selector switches and required instrumentation and external connection is to stud terminals.

A separate 230V/1Ph/50Hz supply is required for loads other than 230V/1Ph/50Hz or 400V/3Ph/50Hz to energise the control and fan circuits. Smaller units are fitted with lifting handles and castors; larger units have wheels or skids and lifting points as required.

Elmatic was formed in 1949 by two partners, Cyril Hodges and Franz Skalitzky and today the company is still privately owned by their two sons, Alun Hodges and John Skalitzky.

Since 1949 the company has grown steadily, both in terms of turnover and factory size. Today the company employs approximately 160 people and is sited at Cardiff in South Wales in a superbly equipped 45,000 sq. ft. factory.

Elmatic is the largest privately owned heating element manufacturer in the UK and our links with the plastics and rubber industries are second to none.
