    Amperage available?

    Starting temperature?

    Target temperature?

    Temperature accuracy needed? +/- 5F or more precise <2f?

    Do you require a temperature sensor in the heater? This sensor can work with an existing Temperature Controller if desired

    Do you desire we quote you a Digital Temperature Controller? We can provide both On/Off or PID Logic Enabled Temperature Controllers

    Adhere the heater to the cylinder or do you need to remove it?

    Is the area Classified/Explosion Proof?

    It is the heating application outside? If so, will the heater going to exposed to the elements?
