Thermocouples for the Glass Industry

Glass Industry Thermocouples

Peak Sensors manufacture many thermocouples for the Glass Industry. We supply directly to glass plants, glass furnace contractors and glass furnace manufacturers. Our sensors are used throughout the glass manufacturing process, including melting, refining or working end processes. As temperature control experts, we know how important it is to measure the temperature of glass accurately during the manufacturing process. A satisfactory standard of product can only be achieved with adequate temperature control.

Peak sensors and Glass Manufacturing

Our aim is to help you maximise your furnace performance, while eliminating any thermometry issues you have had with previous suppliers. We provide thermocouples to many different types of glass manufacturer including:

  • Container Glass
  • Fiberglass
  • Float Glass
  • Tableware Glass
  • Tubing
  • Speciality Glass

Our customer service and quality of our manufacturing has earned us great customer relationships:

“Peak Sensors became our main supplier for thermocouples when our previous main supplier that we had used for over 20 years would no longer fulfil the particular requirements that we had agreed previously. Peak Sensors discussed our requirements and was able to exceed them so they have now been our main supplier for the last two years. We have had no problems with the product that they have supplied to date and all deliveries have been on time. They keep us informed of any possible changes they wish to make to the supply and obtain our approval in advance. We normally receive updated quotations for our standard thermocouples within hours or at latest the same day. An excellent supplier.”
