The most effective way is to clamp one end of the element to a strong door frame and use a piece of string as a guide for the desired length. It's difficult to shorten an element once stretched so care should be taken not to over-stretch. To determine your element length lay a piece of string in the element channel and mark or cut it to length.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eQ.

Why are your heating elements better?\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cbr\u003eA. We only use Kanthal Sandvik A1 alloy wire. We do not use cheaper imported wires that claim to have similar properties but often fall short.

What is \"Element Surface Load\" (also known as watt loading) and why does it matter?\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cbr\u003eA. Kanthal has done extensive testing regarding how much heating power can be concentrated on what size heating elements. If you concentrate too much power on too little wire the wire itself can melt (or at the very least shorten the life). The calculation for watt loading involves determining the total surface area (skin) of the wire and calculating how many watts of power are concentrated on each square inch of wire surface area. The lower the watt loading on the wire the longer the element life will be!\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eTake a look at the chart below. The graph on the left shows Kanthal A1 wire watt loading recommendations for long element life. The line (a) shows elements wound in a coil and set in brick grooves. As you can see the maximum watt loading goes down as the temperature goes up. For ceramic kilns rated at approximately 2300 degrees Fahrenheit the maximum watt load is approximately 17.5 watts per square inch of wire surface area. If you are installing elements in a furnace where the maximum temperature will be lower use the chart below to determine your maximum watt loading and order elements accordingly. \u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cimg alt=\"Kanthal A1 Wire Watt Loading\" src=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/images\/elements\/kanthal_watt_loading.jpg\" height=\"452\" width=\"663\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e The element highlighted in bold is the element you are currently viewing and the elements not in bold are other available stock elements which \u003ca title=\"Kanthal A1 Heating Elements\" href=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/misc-parts\/kanthal-heating-elements.html\"\u003ecan be found here\u003c\/a\u003e:\u003c\/p\u003e \u003ctable border=\"1\"\u003e \u003ctbody\u003e \u003ctr\u003e \u003ctd\u003eVoltage (AC)\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eWattage\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eAmperage\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eB\u0026amp;S Gauge \u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003e Ohms\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eOutside Diameter \u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eElement Surface Load\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eUnstretched Length\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eMin.

Kanthal has done extensive testing regarding how much heating power can be concentrated on what size heating elements. If you concentrate too much power on too little wire the wire itself can melt (or at the very least shorten the life). The calculation for watt loading involves determining the total surface area (skin) of the wire and calculating how many watts of power are concentrated on each square inch of wire surface area. The lower the watt loading on the wire the longer the element life will be!\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eTake a look at the chart below. The graph on the left shows Kanthal A1 wire watt loading recommendations for long element life. The line (a) shows elements wound in a coil and set in brick grooves. As you can see the maximum watt loading goes down as the temperature goes up. For ceramic kilns rated at approximately 2300 degrees Fahrenheit the maximum watt load is approximately 17.5 watts per square inch of wire surface area. If you are installing elements in a furnace where the maximum temperature will be lower use the chart below to determine your maximum watt loading and order elements accordingly. \u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cimg alt=\"Kanthal A1 Wire Watt Loading\" src=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/images\/elements\/kanthal_watt_loading.jpg\" height=\"452\" width=\"663\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e The element highlighted in bold is the element you are currently viewing and the elements not in bold are other available stock elements which \u003ca title=\"Kanthal A1 Heating Elements\" href=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/misc-parts\/kanthal-heating-elements.html\"\u003ecan be found here\u003c\/a\u003e:\u003c\/p\u003e \u003ctable border=\"1\"\u003e \u003ctbody\u003e \u003ctr\u003e \u003ctd\u003eVoltage (AC)\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eWattage\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eAmperage\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eB\u0026amp;S Gauge \u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003e Ohms\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eOutside Diameter \u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eElement Surface Load\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eUnstretched Length\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eMin.

The most effective way is to clamp one end of the element to a strong door frame and use a piece of string as a guide for the desired length.

What is \"Element Surface Load\" (also known as watt loading) and why does it matter?\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cbr\u003eA. Kanthal has done extensive testing regarding how much heating power can be concentrated on what size heating elements. If you concentrate too much power on too little wire the wire itself can melt (or at the very least shorten the life). The calculation for watt loading involves determining the total surface area (skin) of the wire and calculating how many watts of power are concentrated on each square inch of wire surface area. The lower the watt loading on the wire the longer the element life will be!\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eTake a look at the chart below. The graph on the left shows Kanthal A1 wire watt loading recommendations for long element life. The line (a) shows elements wound in a coil and set in brick grooves. As you can see the maximum watt loading goes down as the temperature goes up. For ceramic kilns rated at approximately 2300 degrees Fahrenheit the maximum watt load is approximately 17.5 watts per square inch of wire surface area. If you are installing elements in a furnace where the maximum temperature will be lower use the chart below to determine your maximum watt loading and order elements accordingly. \u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cimg alt=\"Kanthal A1 Wire Watt Loading\" src=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/images\/elements\/kanthal_watt_loading.jpg\" height=\"452\" width=\"663\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e The element highlighted in bold is the element you are currently viewing and the elements not in bold are other available stock elements which \u003ca title=\"Kanthal A1 Heating Elements\" href=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/misc-parts\/kanthal-heating-elements.html\"\u003ecan be found here\u003c\/a\u003e:\u003c\/p\u003e \u003ctable border=\"1\"\u003e \u003ctbody\u003e \u003ctr\u003e \u003ctd\u003eVoltage (AC)\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eWattage\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eAmperage\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eB\u0026amp;S Gauge \u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003e Ohms\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eOutside Diameter \u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eElement Surface Load\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eUnstretched Length\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eMin.

Kanthal has done extensive testing regarding how much heating power can be concentrated on what size heating elements. If you concentrate too much power on too little wire the wire itself can melt (or at the very least shorten the life). The calculation for watt loading involves determining the total surface area (skin) of the wire and calculating how many watts of power are concentrated on each square inch of wire surface area. The lower the watt loading on the wire the longer the element life will be!\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eTake a look at the chart below. The graph on the left shows Kanthal A1 wire watt loading recommendations for long element life. The line (a) shows elements wound in a coil and set in brick grooves. As you can see the maximum watt loading goes down as the temperature goes up. For ceramic kilns rated at approximately 2300 degrees Fahrenheit the maximum watt load is approximately 17.5 watts per square inch of wire surface area. If you are installing elements in a furnace where the maximum temperature will be lower use the chart below to determine your maximum watt loading and order elements accordingly. \u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cimg alt=\"Kanthal A1 Wire Watt Loading\" src=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/images\/elements\/kanthal_watt_loading.jpg\" height=\"452\" width=\"663\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e The element highlighted in bold is the element you are currently viewing and the elements not in bold are other available stock elements which \u003ca title=\"Kanthal A1 Heating Elements\" href=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/misc-parts\/kanthal-heating-elements.html\"\u003ecan be found here\u003c\/a\u003e:\u003c\/p\u003e \u003ctable border=\"1\"\u003e \u003ctbody\u003e \u003ctr\u003e \u003ctd\u003eVoltage (AC)\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eWattage\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eAmperage\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eB\u0026amp;S Gauge \u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003e Ohms\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eOutside Diameter \u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eElement Surface Load\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eUnstretched Length\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eMin.

The most effective way is to clamp one end of the element to a strong door frame and use a piece of string as a guide for the desired length.

Kanthal has done extensive testing regarding how much heating power can be concentrated on what size heating elements. If you concentrate too much power on too little wire the wire itself can melt (or at the very least shorten the life). The calculation for watt loading involves determining the total surface area (skin) of the wire and calculating how many watts of power are concentrated on each square inch of wire surface area. The lower the watt loading on the wire the longer the element life will be!\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eTake a look at the chart below. The graph on the left shows Kanthal A1 wire watt loading recommendations for long element life. The line (a) shows elements wound in a coil and set in brick grooves. As you can see the maximum watt loading goes down as the temperature goes up. For ceramic kilns rated at approximately 2300 degrees Fahrenheit the maximum watt load is approximately 17.5 watts per square inch of wire surface area. If you are installing elements in a furnace where the maximum temperature will be lower use the chart below to determine your maximum watt loading and order elements accordingly. \u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cimg alt=\"Kanthal A1 Wire Watt Loading\" src=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/images\/elements\/kanthal_watt_loading.jpg\" height=\"452\" width=\"663\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e The element highlighted in bold is the element you are currently viewing and the elements not in bold are other available stock elements which \u003ca title=\"Kanthal A1 Heating Elements\" href=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/misc-parts\/kanthal-heating-elements.html\"\u003ecan be found here\u003c\/a\u003e:\u003c\/p\u003e \u003ctable border=\"1\"\u003e \u003ctbody\u003e \u003ctr\u003e \u003ctd\u003eVoltage (AC)\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eWattage\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eAmperage\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eB\u0026amp;S Gauge \u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003e Ohms\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eOutside Diameter \u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eElement Surface Load\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eUnstretched Length\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eMin.

What is \"Element Surface Load\" (also known as watt loading) and why does it matter?\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cbr\u003eA. Kanthal has done extensive testing regarding how much heating power can be concentrated on what size heating elements. If you concentrate too much power on too little wire the wire itself can melt (or at the very least shorten the life). The calculation for watt loading involves determining the total surface area (skin) of the wire and calculating how many watts of power are concentrated on each square inch of wire surface area. The lower the watt loading on the wire the longer the element life will be!\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eTake a look at the chart below. The graph on the left shows Kanthal A1 wire watt loading recommendations for long element life. The line (a) shows elements wound in a coil and set in brick grooves. As you can see the maximum watt loading goes down as the temperature goes up. For ceramic kilns rated at approximately 2300 degrees Fahrenheit the maximum watt load is approximately 17.5 watts per square inch of wire surface area. If you are installing elements in a furnace where the maximum temperature will be lower use the chart below to determine your maximum watt loading and order elements accordingly. \u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cimg alt=\"Kanthal A1 Wire Watt Loading\" src=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/images\/elements\/kanthal_watt_loading.jpg\" height=\"452\" width=\"663\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e The element highlighted in bold is the element you are currently viewing and the elements not in bold are other available stock elements which \u003ca title=\"Kanthal A1 Heating Elements\" href=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/misc-parts\/kanthal-heating-elements.html\"\u003ecan be found here\u003c\/a\u003e:\u003c\/p\u003e \u003ctable border=\"1\"\u003e \u003ctbody\u003e \u003ctr\u003e \u003ctd\u003eVoltage (AC)\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eWattage\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eAmperage\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eB\u0026amp;S Gauge \u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003e Ohms\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eOutside Diameter \u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eElement Surface Load\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eUnstretched Length\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eMin.

How do I stretch an element to length?\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003eA. The most effective way is to clamp one end of the element to a strong door frame and use a piece of string as a guide for the desired length. It's difficult to shorten an element once stretched so care should be taken not to over-stretch. To determine your element length lay a piece of string in the element channel and mark or cut it to length.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eQ.

What is \"Element Surface Load\" (also known as watt loading) and why does it matter?\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cbr\u003eA. Kanthal has done extensive testing regarding how much heating power can be concentrated on what size heating elements. If you concentrate too much power on too little wire the wire itself can melt (or at the very least shorten the life). The calculation for watt loading involves determining the total surface area (skin) of the wire and calculating how many watts of power are concentrated on each square inch of wire surface area. The lower the watt loading on the wire the longer the element life will be!\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eTake a look at the chart below. The graph on the left shows Kanthal A1 wire watt loading recommendations for long element life. The line (a) shows elements wound in a coil and set in brick grooves. As you can see the maximum watt loading goes down as the temperature goes up. For ceramic kilns rated at approximately 2300 degrees Fahrenheit the maximum watt load is approximately 17.5 watts per square inch of wire surface area. If you are installing elements in a furnace where the maximum temperature will be lower use the chart below to determine your maximum watt loading and order elements accordingly. \u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cimg alt=\"Kanthal A1 Wire Watt Loading\" src=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/images\/elements\/kanthal_watt_loading.jpg\" height=\"452\" width=\"663\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e The element highlighted in bold is the element you are currently viewing and the elements not in bold are other available stock elements which \u003ca title=\"Kanthal A1 Heating Elements\" href=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/misc-parts\/kanthal-heating-elements.html\"\u003ecan be found here\u003c\/a\u003e:\u003c\/p\u003e \u003ctable border=\"1\"\u003e \u003ctbody\u003e \u003ctr\u003e \u003ctd\u003eVoltage (AC)\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eWattage\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eAmperage\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eB\u0026amp;S Gauge \u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003e Ohms\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eOutside Diameter \u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eElement Surface Load\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eUnstretched Length\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eMin.

The most effective way is to clamp one end of the element to a strong door frame and use a piece of string as a guide for the desired length. It's difficult to shorten an element once stretched so care should be taken not to over-stretch. To determine your element length lay a piece of string in the element channel and mark or cut it to length.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eQ.

What is \"Element Surface Load\" (also known as watt loading) and why does it matter?\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cbr\u003eA. Kanthal has done extensive testing regarding how much heating power can be concentrated on what size heating elements. If you concentrate too much power on too little wire the wire itself can melt (or at the very least shorten the life). The calculation for watt loading involves determining the total surface area (skin) of the wire and calculating how many watts of power are concentrated on each square inch of wire surface area. The lower the watt loading on the wire the longer the element life will be!\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eTake a look at the chart below. The graph on the left shows Kanthal A1 wire watt loading recommendations for long element life. The line (a) shows elements wound in a coil and set in brick grooves. As you can see the maximum watt loading goes down as the temperature goes up. For ceramic kilns rated at approximately 2300 degrees Fahrenheit the maximum watt load is approximately 17.5 watts per square inch of wire surface area. If you are installing elements in a furnace where the maximum temperature will be lower use the chart below to determine your maximum watt loading and order elements accordingly. \u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cimg alt=\"Kanthal A1 Wire Watt Loading\" src=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/images\/elements\/kanthal_watt_loading.jpg\" height=\"452\" width=\"663\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e The element highlighted in bold is the element you are currently viewing and the elements not in bold are other available stock elements which \u003ca title=\"Kanthal A1 Heating Elements\" href=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/misc-parts\/kanthal-heating-elements.html\"\u003ecan be found here\u003c\/a\u003e:\u003c\/p\u003e \u003ctable border=\"1\"\u003e \u003ctbody\u003e \u003ctr\u003e \u003ctd\u003eVoltage (AC)\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eWattage\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eAmperage\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eB\u0026amp;S Gauge \u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003e Ohms\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eOutside Diameter \u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eElement Surface Load\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eUnstretched Length\u003c\/td\u003e \u003ctd\u003eMin.
