Stainless steel tubing for liquid cooling is placed in the additional channels of the aluminum track next to the tubular heater in the Heat and Cool designs. The overall low mass construction and high thermal conductivity of the aluminum provides extremely uniform surface temperatures and rapid cooling cycles.
Maxibands are constructed as sets; each half consists of one tubular heating element and one aluminum track segment.
The low thermal expansion strap securely fastened to the aluminum track segments provides a built-in hinge, making handling and installation easier. Mounting brackets are welded to the strap, providing the clamping force required to draw the heater assembly evenly and tightly to the cylinder. The straps are equipped with clamping brackets with 1/4"-20 socket head cap screws.
