Multi-Shank Molybdenum Disilicide Heating Element The Multi-shank MoSi2 heating elements are manufactured of high-density molybdenum disilicide. The four shank element must be supported therefore the maximum element temperature is 1800 deg C.
It can be supported from beneath or stapled to high-temperature fiberboard and installed on the wall or roof of the furnace.
The MoSi2 heating elements terminal ends account for a considerable amount of the energy lost and the cost of the element. The four shank and other multi-shank elements are therefore more energy efficient and cost less. The multi-shank elements are available in all standard diameters and terminal and hot section bends.
