These high-performance heaters have diameter tolerances between -.001 and -.005 inches from specified nominal diameters, ensuring a good fit into the heater cavity. The heater's thermal expansion then makes for proper heater/surface contact for maximum heat transfer efficiency. They have a standard heater length tolerance of 1/16 inch, and a 5 percent wattage tolerance, but the company can meet specific lengths and tolerances, too.
