snap action bimetalsDemaich bimetal snap action components are economical, consistent, simple, fast acting, and well suited for a wide variety of applications, plus they can withstand wide temperature ranges and harsh environments. Often, they are more appropriate than electronic devices.  As a result, bimetals are widely used today in appliances, thermostats, switches and circuit breakers, HVAC controls, motors, furnaces, thermal valves and safety devices, to name only a few of their thousands of applications.

Manufactured precisely by Demaich in innumerable shapes and sizes, and assembled using a variety of manufacturing processes, Bimetals operate in temperature ranges of –100°F to 1000°F.  Snap action bimetals perform in the ranges of -50°F to 800°F, with circuit breaker elements responding from 1/4 amp to 200 amps.

Bimetals can generate forces from grams to pounds, depending on the temperature changes and material selections. For design assistance, contact Demaich or view our design tools.
