Thermocouples for the Ceramic Manufacturing Industry

Temperature Control in Ceramic Manufacturing

Temperature management is essential in ceramic manufacturing to ensure that the process remains reliable producing final products of a high standard.

As temperature sensor specialists with over 20 years experience working within the ceramic industry, we understand how important it is to accurately measure the temperature during the sintering process to ensure you achieve a quality product. This standard of quality can only be achieved with adequate temperature control.

At Peak Sensors we manufacture and supply a complete range of sensors to support the ceramic industry.

Peak Sensors and Ceramic Manufacturing

We provide many types of thermocouples and supply directly to various ceramic manufacturers, including:

  • Porcelain
  • Sanitary Fixtures
  • Ceramic Tiles
  • Tableware
  • Insulators
  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Wear Resistant Ceramic Components
  • Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

Our sensors are used within kilns, ovens, furnaces and other high temperature applications to monitor the temperature during the sintering process. These temperatures are normally very high and can range from 1000° C to 1600° C.

Thermocouples and Temperature Sensors

Temperature sensors used for monitoring the temperature in kilns, ovens or furnaces when firing green ceramics to form sintered ceramics are called thermocouples. These sensors are typically base-metal or rare-metal and are designed to withstand high temperatures, for example as high as 1000° C to 1600° C found in a kiln chamber.

Thermocouples Designed for Ceramic Manufacturing

There are a few different thermocouple types available to suit your ceramic manufacturing process. For example, depending on the firing temperature and how robust the thermocouple needs to be, will determine whether a rare metal, base metal or mineral insulated thermocouple is best suited to your process.
