I’ve been discussing how to build a heater for our Carbon Fibre curing with Serge and he proposed to simplify things greatly. Instead of an aluminium tube with a copper wire winding type – he came with a simple cooking heater wire which would be placed in a centre of our tube.
As usual with Serge, he instantly grabbed a spare one and gave it a try! 🙂
It is awesome & thank you Serge! This really solves more than a few things – even wire winding, fitting tube in a tube, mechanical protection of a wire, temperature control and also simplifies our design quite dramatically!
Still, I made couple notes which we need to think through:
- How to secure this element in a middle of our tube, while avoiding any (significant) thermal bridges?
- We need to come with some sort of automated temperature control to keep constant 175C for 40 minutes
Once again, Thank you Serge!!!
