Small VERY Hot Plate Answered

I am looking for someone who can design for me to make or make for me a specialized hot plate. I need it to be small like 3" by 2" and to get very hot as much as 700 degrees is desired. I want the power source to be 400watts. I know this seems hard but my reasoning is that the smaller size means higher temps with less wattage.

I would use this as a hot plate that evaporates liquid from an airstream as it passes by - a dryer if you like. I would use 2 to cause the air to have to pass both in a zig-zag path. I would like to have a solid surface so eventually I see the plate encased in ceramic but for this it need only be metal.

Can you help? Contact me here on the site to discuss more details

I dunno but maybe you are looking at using the heating element from a kiln or metal melting device. Maybe gang up a bunch of hot air gun heating elements. Good luck.
