Thermal Systems for the Defense Industry

Birk is an ITAR regulated company, which supplies quality-driven flexible heaters for the defense industry. These heating systems keep components within operating temperature specifications when the ambient is below operating specification. Birk's polyimide heaters that are designed for the defense industry are typically made of Kapton® polyimide film and optimized for each application using Birk proprietary design and fabrication methods.

We provide complete assemblies, using processes that are completely managed in-house, in order to give our customers plug-in capability. Wiring harnesses are also available to support single or multiple polyimide thermofoil flexible heater systems. We provide mechanical attachment(s) to machined parts and Gold/Nickel plating is available to resist corrosion or oxidation.

Birk's polyimide film flexible heaters are designed to provide:

Heat at operating temperatures to -40°C Very low out-gassing Very even heat distribution Integrated sensors and flex circuits

Ruggedized Laptops & Memory Storage
- Birk makes custom polyimide film flexible heaters to fit display, memory and processing components. We use standard sensors and custom thin film sensors to fit the unique parameters of control systems.
Acquisition Systems
- Birk develops innovative polyimide film heaters to fit small surface areas with close heater contact around multiple openings. Sensors are specified to customers' end needs.
Heated Air Handlers

Birk specializes in "engineered solutions" not standard products you can get elsewhere. Our design team thrives on developing innovative solutions to complex problems. Our continuing implementation of Lean Processes allows us to deliver prototypes in days or weeks, where others quote months. Each thermal system is custom designed to meet the specific requirements of your project. Click here for Customize your Solution
