Chromalox celebrates 100 years of Edwin Wiegand’s “innovative spirit”
March 23, 2017 - Chromalox Inc. is celebrating 100 years in electrical heating this year. Congratulations!
According to the company, Edwin L. Wiegand invented and patented the electric resistance-metal sheath heating element “that created an entire industry”. This invention, says Chromalox, led to the first electric strip heater that would become the modern electric clothes iron and, ultimately, lead to other patents and technologies. Wiegand founded the company in Pittsburgh, Pa., in 1917.
“The innovative spirit of Edwin L. Wiegand continues on today as Chromalox continues to pioneer new thermal technologies and shape the future of industrial heating,” said Mike Sutter, president & CEO.
Chromalox says it will celebrate throughout the year with special publications, contests and events.
