Product category: Components and accessories (suppliers to the glass machinery industry), Equipment for glass tube production, Measurement and control of glass temperature

Thermocouple Wire and Assemblies

As a market leader in precious metal thermocouples, our wires and assemblies are renowned for accuracy and reliability. We supply type R, S and B thermocouple wire as well as other precious metal combinations, and our thermocouple assemblies are proven to last the full furnace campaign while withstanding high temperature applications.

Fabrications and Linings

Our self-supported fabrications and linings withstand thermal cycling, ceramic cracking and exchange of contacting parts. We make welded sheets of platinum/rhodium alloys, dispersing them with zirconia grain stabilised particles for more demanding applications to increase the mechanical strength and durability. Alternatively our iridium products can withstand higher temperatures, have a higher mechanical strength and provide opportunities for new glass applications.

Advanced Coating Technology

Ideal for long runs and limited thermal cycling, our ACT coatings protect ceramics through the thin coating (200-500 microns) of platinum or 10% rhodium/platinum on the surface. They can be used with any type of glass, including the most corrosive, and provide 100% shape retention for the lifetime of the coating.

HTX Platinum Thermocouple Wire

Through our latest innovation we have developed HTX platinum thermocouple wire: a high strength thermocouple wire that withstands the most demanding applications, particularly those seen in the semiconductor industry. We are able to stabilise the grain boundaries in our HTX wire to give it outstanding strength compared to our standard platinum wire. This stabilisation prevents grains occupying the complete wire diameter and stops bamboo structures developing from the grains being easily displaced. Containing the grains allows the temperature measurement to be maintained, offering reliability in harsh environments.

HTX wire provides superior durability. It maintains excellent functionality after 1,200 hours at 1400°C with 400psi tensile loading during accelerated life testing. It also shows exceptional measurement accuracy, meeting IEC 60584-1 class 1 tolerance.

Our HTX wire is available as type R and type S thermocouples, and we can manufacture it in any diameter within our typical size range to meet your specific requirements.
