cartridge heaters / heating element

by 1Mattchu

Hey guys! I´ve been thinking of making a lyman extruder for some time and I was wondering what type of heating element I should use. I am planning to recycle many plastics but I need a heating element that could safely go up and above 300c. (For polycarbonate). I'm not sure if cartridge heaters are the way to go. If you can use them use then than should I put them in series around the pipe?
