PTC Heating Film Technology
The use of the PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) heating element has been studied in Hydor laboratories since the early Nineties. It is made up of a special carbon-based ink applied to a plastic film. In the special ink deposited on the PTC film, the carbon aggregates move away from one another when the design temperature threshold is exceeded. This phenomenon allows for a dramatic increase in electrical resistance and, consequently, a drop in power, thus guaranteeing the Self-Limiting Factor, i.e. the safe control of the heat given off by the heating element. This innovative technology - currently unrivalled on the market - significantly boosts safety, and can thus be applied to a wide variety of heating systems.
*For use with aquariums and reservoirs from 26-53 Gallons.
