For a comfortable life.
With innovations from Eichenauer.

Applications and Products

All is well at seven o’clock in the morning. Fresh out of bed, you take a clean shirt out of the dryer and then clear out the dishwasher after switching on the coffee maker and putting on the kettle to boil the water for your partner’s cup of tea. You then go into the bathroom where you dry your hair after taking a shower.

Life is convenient – and full of innovations made by Eichenauer. After all, anyone starting the day as described above could well have used five appliances that run on technology that comes straight out of our family-run business in Hatzenbühl.

Application Fields and Products


White Goods

Eichenauer offers you a complete product portfolio. We develop and produce system solutions to match your specific appliance design and heating requirements. Whether air, water or steam applications, our worldwide production facilities give you high-quality yet cost-effective solutions on a just-in-time basis.
Washing machines, dishwashers or tumble dryers – we have the right heating element to meet all requirements.
And we are able to draw on longstanding experience of alternative applications such as zeolite, too. Well-known large-scale corporations regularly make use of our services.


Tumble Dryers

Our zig-zag heating elements for tumble dryers are suitable for both the vented and condenser principle.
Favorable flow properties ensure efficient heat dissipation.
Various housing and connection types are available, as well as customer-specific temperature limiters.
On request we are also able to integrate additional safety functions in the heating element.

The maximum output is 3000 watts and various output levels are possible.

See our product data sheet for details.

Dishwashers

Integrated pump heating system for dishwashers.

The combination of pump, heating and brackets in one element makes the system much easier to assemble, as well as giving it significantly improved sealing characteristics.

Zeolite

We are very familiar with heating systems based on Zeolite desorption in air drying applications.
Fields of application now go beyond the area of appliances: the automotive industry has discovered this distinctive material, too.

The benefits are obvious: 20-30% energy savings, increased drying efficiency and no steam release when opening the dishwasher.

Small Household Appliances

Brazed systems and wire heating elements are what made Eichenauer so successful over a period of more than 90 years.

We are the first manufacture to have used brazed aluminum and stainless steel alloys in the area of small household appliances and put them on the market in a new generation of kettles with stainless steel base plate. When our heating elements were used in pad coffee makers, our products finally found their way into virtually every household.

These are some of the applications in which brazed systems are to be found: kettles, coffee makers, espresso machines and egg boilers.

Our wire heating elements are to be found in numerous applications such as air pre-heating (defroster protection) and air re-heating in ventilation systems, fan heaters using axial fans or based on the convection principle.
There is a wide range of potential uses.

Feel free to ask us for details


Brazed Kettle System

The heating unit is a tubular aluminum element press-molded and brazed onto a stainless-steel base plate. Benefits include extremely short regulator response times and reduced lime-scale formation.

Nickel-free construction is possible, as are customer-specific base plate designs of varying diameters and dimensions including oval shapes.

See our product data sheet for details.

Brazed Coffee Maker System

The component was specially developed for heating water based on the flow principle and for keeping coffee warm. It is characterized by a compact shape and short heat-up times due to its low mass – which allows it to achieve a high degree of energy efficiency.

The tubular heating element, water pipe, fastening brackets for the temperature regulator and the fuse are made of brazed aluminum. Customer-specific stainless steel solutions are also available.

Brazed PAD System

This component was developed especially for heating water in “beverage on demand” or “single serve” coffee makers. It is characterized by a compact shape and short heat-up time due to its low mass – which allows it to achieve a high degree of energy efficiency. It is possible to supply versions with stainless steel or aluminum water pipe.

Other Varieties


PTC Heating Elements

Eichenauer PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) are self-regulating heating elements on a PTC basis with a circular, flat or rectangular shape.
Due to the relatively compact build, high power density and self-regulating PTC effect, the component is suitable for heating solid, liquid and gaseous media.

The high-power density is achieved by means of optimum heat extraction.

Depending on the application, Eichenauer PTCs can be used in a variety of surface temperature areas.


PTC Heating Elements with Silicone Rubber Sleeve

Dimensions, output and temperatures virtually always have to be adapted individually to customer-specific requirements.

In these models, the outer sheath is made of temperature-resistant silicone rubber. Alternatively, the silicone sleeves can also be pressed into aluminum profiles.

Heat-resistant connections are available with VDE and UL approval.

The operating voltage ranges from 100-240 volts. Safety extra low voltages of 12-50 volts are available on request.
Applications include hair curlers, hair crimpers, cup warmers, heat guns, oil pre-heating, photocopiers and laminators.

Other Applications

Heating Elements for Warming Drawer

Unlike other warming drawers which are simply heated by means of heating plates in the base of the drawer, our heating element is combined with a fan for even distribution of the heat throughout the drawer even when full.

You benefit from the small, compact design: this enables you to offer your customers space for the things that really matter. This open crimped wire element is supplied either with temperature limiter (automatic reset or electrically self-retaining) or thermal cut-off as preferred, as well as cable Connections per customer specifications.

Other areas of application:

• Defrosting food
• Keeping food warm
• Keeping dishes warm
• Gentle cooking

See our product data sheet for details.
