Description

FeCrAl Flat Ribbon Wire

The Crazy Wire Company are best known and long established as Europe’s preferred suppliers of top quality FeCrAl flat ribbon wire and we also have enormous stock levels at all times as we use this wire to weave our mesh products.

The FeCrAl flat ribbon wire, measuring 0.8mm x 0.1mm, offers a unique combination of durability and versatility, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of applications. This wire is made from a high-quality iron-chromium-aluminum alloy that is resistant to oxidation and can withstand extreme temperatures. Wires with flat ribbon shapes have a larger surface area than those with round shapes, which improves heat management in applications requiring good heat distribution. Industrial heating elements, where consistent and reliable heat transfer is essential, will particularly benefit from it.

Also, the flat profile of this coil enables more compact coil designs in electrical heating systems, enabling them to take up less space without sacrificing performance. Additionally, FeCrAl flat ribbon wire exhibits excellent mechanical properties, such as high tensile strength and resistance to deformation under stress, making it suitable for structural applications in challenging environments.

Specification of this FeCrAl Flat Ribbon Wire:

  • Diameter – 0.8mm x 0.1mm
  • Ohms/ft – 17.78

We also offer more of this KA1 wire too if required.

FAQs About This Wire

How Does FeCrAl Flat Ribbon Wire Perform In Extreme Cold?

FeCrAl flat ribbon wire performs exceptionally well in extreme cold conditions due to its unique material properties. The iron-chromium-aluminum alloy used in its manufacture provides excellent low-temperature stability and resistance to brittleness, a common issue with many materials at very low temperatures. Unlike some metals that become more brittle and lose their mechanical strength in cold environments, FeCrAl maintains its structural integrity, ensuring its performance remains consistent.

The flat ribbon design of the wire also contributes to its performance in cold conditions. This shape allows for efficient electrical conduction and heat distribution, which is particularly beneficial if the wire is used in applications where it needs to quickly respond to temperature changes or provide consistent heating in cold environments.

Moreover, the low coefficient of thermal expansion of FeCrAl alloy means that the wire will not undergo significant expansion or contraction with temperature fluctuations. This stability is crucial in applications where precision and reliability are essential, especially in environments that experience extreme temperature variations.

How Efficient Is Heat Distribution In FeCrAl Flat Ribbon Wire?

FeCrAl flat ribbon wire has a highly efficient heat distribution, primarily due to its unique design and composition. Flat ribbon wires provide a greater surface area than round wires of the same mass. The wire’s surface area is thus increased, which facilitates more efficient and uniform heat transfer. It is especially useful in applications where even and consistent heating is crucial, for example, in industrial heating elements or domestic appliances like toasters.

Iron, chromium, and aluminum are the three elements that make up FeCrAl alloy. The material has excellent oxidation resistance and high electrical resistivity, which allows it to generate and sustain heat even at elevated temperatures. It is this resistivity that allows the wire to convert electrical energy into heat efficiently.

In addition, the FeCrAl alloy’s resistance to oxidation allows the wire to maintain its efficiency under high temperatures, which would normally accelerate degradation in less resistant metals. The wire’s longevity ensures that it continues to distribute heat effectively throughout its life.
