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



Why don't you tell us what you want to do (with it)?


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.
