Electro Plastics is an original equipment manufacturer, and we design custom heating solutions. Our heating elements have been used in dozens of industries, from transportation to agriculture to health care.
Self-regulating heating pad, powered by wind and solar, to keep equipment in polar stations warm in Antarctica
The polar stations collect data for glaciology and solid earth deformation research. To endure such severe weather and still accurately measure all data, the polar stations are buried as a buffer against the strong winds and temperature swings. They also use wind and solar power sources. Their equipment stays warm using our custom-made Electro Plastics® heating pad, powered by solar and wind energy. The pad is able to keep the equipment warm without any hotspots because of the self-regulating technology.
Custom-made trim to prevent DNA coolers from freezing shut
At the National Accelerator Laboratory at Stanford University, researchers use the macromolecular crystallography facility to read DNA. The DNA is stored in tall, round coolers, called cassettes, at freezing temperatures. To keep the lid of the cassette from freezing, we made a custom-made trim to attach to the lid and heated it to just above freezing temperature, using only 12 volts. The temperature was just warm enough to open the lid but still cold enough to keep the DNA completely crystallized.
Heat narrow spaces in your motorhome
In this motor home, we installed the STEP RV® heating element in the floor throughout the whole area, including the bathroom. We also put the heating elements under the bed and the seat cushions so the owners were always comfortable throughout the home.
