Portable battery heaters are among the important supporting heating products that are used in demanding applications in industries such as aviation, military, naval, and aerospace, to name a few. They are designed to keep battery or battery packs at optimal operating temperatures in sub-zero climates.
Battery heaters are typically heated using flexible heaters manufactured with silicone rubber. Silicone rubber can be waterproof and is chemical resistant. Silicone rubber can also be cured to fit 3D shapes making it the ideal material for portable battery heaters. Many models available are self-regulating, eliminating the need for active thermal management helping to reduce cost and complexity.
When producing portable batter heaters, Birk Manufacturing ensure that their design and manufacturing techniques all adhere to industrial, commercial, and military standards including:
