Under certain airflow conditions, PTC (positive temperature coefficient) heating solutions may fail as a result of cracking, bursting, or even burning.
Offering simple troubleshooting solutions, low maintenance, and highly efficient heat transfer, Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heaters — specialized resistors that vary resistance in accordance with their temperature — offer versatile, easy-to-use solutions for a range of industries.
So, you think you know everything there is to know about heating systems? Not so fast. There are plenty of unexpected types and uses of heating systems. Here are some that you might not have thought of.
1. Heated Turf
Several companies specialize in creating heating systems for outdoor sports fields, such as soccer pitches and football playing fields. Heating Solutions International (HSI), a partner of the European Turf Group, recently built four heated turf soccer pitches in Norway that radiate up to 300 kilowatts to enable play on fields that otherwise would be covered in frost or snow.
It can be difficult to find the right heating technology for your needs. Most industrial and commercial customers demand an innovative combination of efficiency and safety in their heaters.
At Pelonis, we find that the perfect solution is PTC heating. PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) is a unique technology that eschews traditional resistance wire and replaces it with ceramic stones or chips.
This simple switch in materials is what makes PTC electric heaters superior to traditional coil electric heaters. In this blog, we will cover what we believe to be the top three benefits of modern PTC heating technology.

In addition, we’ve recently updated the Resources Page on our website for you to access. Here you can find a variety of eBooks, catalogs and white papers. We’re continually adding resource documents to the page, so be sure to stop back to see what is new and that might be helpful to your daily business.
If you own a business be it big or small, you know how critical it is to keep costs down. Everyday is a battle to find new ways to save money all while keeping quality levels high. Often in the electronics industry, there are inventive and even hidden heating and cooling cost saving factors not instantly thought about. In this blog, we will cover the top five ways Pelonis believes can help electronics manufacturers improve their bottom-line.
The overheating of electronics is a topic that will run through most of this blog’s theme. It is one of the top “killers” of electronics thus manufacturers are constantly trying to find ways to eliminate or lessen its effects. One handy and simple way to reduce heat-related problems is with a heat pipe. Heat pipes are passive heat transfer systems with high effective thermal conductivity. Typically made with copper or aluminum, these sealed hollow tubes are lightweight and transfer heat away from machinery over long distances without any moving parts. Heat pipes, which use evaporative cooling technology, were first used by NASA but have found their way into modern electronics and computers. They are an easy and cost-effective heat transfer method.
