Aluma Heater

Aluma-Heat® and Aluma-Heat® Light

The Trivolt ALUMA-HEAT® model is manufactured using a custom extruded aluminum design.

It is a very light-weight heater, making it easy to handle and install. The time lapse from hot to cold skin temperature is greatly reduced compared to traditional heater elements. There are many advantages both electrically and mechanically for the car builder because of this heater’s sturdy construction and different profiles.

  • Manufactured in aluminum extrusion 6065T1
  • Light-weight construction
  • Multiple fins allow for very low skin temperature and efficient airflow patterns that maximize the surface dissipation of heat
  • Easy installation and mounting
  • Maximum length of 60 inches
  • Available in 2 profiles;
  • 3.25 x 0.525 inches with 1 inch core including raised fins for maximum surface exposure and airflow
  • 3.25 x 0.50 inches with 1.5 inch core
  • The profiles have a solid core making them sturdy and allowing for minimal mounting brackets
  • Can be manufactured at all applicable voltages and up to 25 watts per square inch
  • Optional extrusions see images below
  • Extrusions can be anodized against corrosion
  • Heaters can be stacked up to 3 at a time with Teflon bushings in the machined slots to accommodate thermal expansion
  • Available high temperature gasket can be installed between the Teflon bushing and heater assembly to reduce the noise caused by expansion
  • Terminals or wire terminations are available

Our Teflon bushings are manufactured from mechanical Teflon and can withstand up to 450 degrees F. They are resistant to the car’s shock and vibration during use and solve the constant problem of cracking and breakage associated with ceramic and porcelain secondary insulating bushings.

These Teflon bushings have been successfully used in the field for over the past 10 years with outstanding results.
