heating tape


Electrical heating tapes are a fast and easy way to construct a bakeout system.

When using such tapes, avoid any crossings of the tape with itself because these can get very hot.

Also, you have to wrap viewports and electrical feedthroughs in aluminium foil before baking and you have to wrap flexible bellows in foil before wrapping the heating tapes around them. This is done in order to distribute the heat better over structures which could otherwise be damaged by too big a temperature gradient.
