Argus Heating design and manufacture a range of low watt density Cartridge Heaters and distribute the HOTWATT and TEMPCO range of high watt density Cartridge Heaters throughout Australasia. These are competitively priced high-quality brands and available ex-stock.


  • Cartridge Heaters rely on close metal to metal fitting to efficiently transfer the heat, reducing the cartridge temperature and maximising the life of the Cartridge Heater.
  • Standard sheath material Series 300 Stainless Steel. Incoloy® 800 available on request.
  • Fitted as standard with Teflon or Fibreglass insulated lead wires.
  • Range of custom fittings available, such as, a variety of different post-terminals, lead terminations, armour fitting, braided leads, threaded fitting, terminal enclosures, etc.
  • HOTWATT & TEMPCO cartridges offer a wide watt density range of 3.1 to 46.5W/cm².
  • Argus Heating cartridges have a maximum watt density of 6W/cm2


  • The element spiral is encapsulated in magnesium oxide sand, close to the surface of the tube.
  • The cartridge is swaged to increase the efficiency of the insulating sand.
  • We recommend that holes for fitting are drilled and reamed to the nominal diameter plus 0.03mm (0.001") maximum, minus 0.00mm minimum.
