Alper for industry and medical: PTC-effect flexible heating elements

Alper specializes in PTC-effect flexible heating elements. The strength of these technologies is the gentle PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) effect that allows attainment of thermal equilibrium; this avoids the need for limiters or temperature sensors in many applications, even sophisticated ones. Some of the industrial applications that can be listed are: anti-condensation systems for camera lenses and electrical panels, monitors and screen heaters as well as particular applications in production machinery. The mostly used applications in the medical sector are: heating of physiological fluids, heating to recreate human temperature for samples research tests and experiments, heating of operating table and medical devices.
