Temperature measurement and control is critical to many industries all over the world. By controlling and measuring temperature the speed and efficiency of processes and chemical reactions can be optimised resulting in better products being produced for the best cost possible.
We manufacture temperature sensors for an every increasing list of industries. Have a look at the areas we work in below:
Custom Sensors For Your Equipment (OEM Integration/Contract Manufacture)
Large volume sensors for inclusion in your products
The majority of the thermocouples and resistance thermometers we make end up in our customers own equipment. We work closely with our customers to ensure sensors are designed to suit their exact needs and specifications. We are experts in temperature measurement and have designed many novel and unique sensors specifically for our customers applications. We can work closely with you to solve your temperature measurement problems and then manufacture high volumes of sensors for your products.
Here are some examples of applications that we manufacture sensors for:
- Drug temperature control in anaesthesia machines.
- Industrial inkjet print head temperature control.
- Solar power temperature measurement.
- Agricultural machinery manufacture.
- Industrial automation systems.
- Construction equipment manufacture.
- Compost temperature measurement.
- Manufacture of Alumina & Zirconia Crucibles.
- Cryogenic microwave systems for wireless networks.
- Ice-cream makers.
- Grain storage temperature probe.
- Brewery/distillery equipment.
Each temperature problem is different and we can work with you to provide the best solution while keeping costs acceptable and quality high.
We can help at different stages, whether you are at the idea stage and need temperature measurement design recommendation or have an existing solution that needs improvement.

Sensors for glass plants and engineers including bubblers & level electrodes
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 at a certain temperature. Our glass temperature sensors are specifically designed for use when measuring melting, refining and working end processes, as well as other stages that take place along the production line.
An advantage of using our sensors, is that compared to many of our rivals, our sensors are heavily shielded from mechanical damages and have procedures which ensure that thermocouple drift is minimised. We design glass sensors to resist mechanical damage and have procedures to make sure thermocouple drift is minimised.
Petrochemical, Gas and Oil
We work closely with many companies to design temperature probes for a variety of plants and environments such as catalyst tanks and partial oxidation reactors (POX).
We can supply all types of thermocouples, resistance thermometers and protection sheaths. We can work with you to design new sensors or work from your existing designs.
Sub-sea temperature sensors
We manufacture temperature sensors suited for marine use. Hydroscopic and pressure tests can be conducted and certificates provided.
Heavy duty temperature sensors
We can design heavy-duty probes for corrosive atmospheres that will last longer than any of our competitors. We have many years experience in manufacturing POX thermocouple probes.
Multi-point temperature probes for temperature profiling / process monitoring
We manufacture multipoint thermocouples. Our designs and manufacturing techniques have been used to save our customers millions of pounds in temperature profiling and process monitoring applications.
Other Petrochemical Sensors
We supply to a variety of petrochemical plants, dive support vessels, exploration organisations and other suppliers to the petrochemical, oil & gas industries.
Steel, Alloys and Heat Treatment
Sensors for steel works, steel service providers and turn-key solution providers
Having manufactured products for various global steel works since our formation in 1997, as a business we understand how to meet the exact specifications that are required to measure the temperature of steel. We can produce sensors that measure temperatures at any step of the process, that can measure both standard and speciality steels.
Sensors for plants and also aluminium service providers
We supply temperature sensors to both primary and secondary aluminium plants. As a manufacturing business with a vast amount of industry specific knowledge, we understand that strict temperature control within an aluminium plant is critical to its efficiency. Our experience in manufacturing temperature sensors enables us to meet your exact specifications and standards.
Universities, Testing and Research
Components and sensors for experiments and research
We provide temperature sensors and equipment for many university research centres and government bodies such the Health & Safety Laboratory and the UK Atomic Energy Authority .
Popular choices of products purchased by universities include:
- Ceramic and Alloy Tubes and Insulators for existing temperature measurement devices.
- Sensors for measuring temperature of air, gases, liquids and solids in laboratories.
- Instruments for use with temperature sensors.
- Production equipment to produce fine welds or crimp cables.
- Platinum wire and temperature sensor cable.
Ovens and Kilns
Sensors for oven manufacturers and replacement sensors
We are able to supply temperature sensors to oven manufacturers and we can also replace existing temperature sensors or install new temperature sensors into your own ovens. Popular choices of temperature sensors for ovens include our range of resistance thermometers which work more accurately at temperatures which are normally witnessed in oven processes.
Automotive and Engine Sensors
Sensors for exhaust gas, diesel engines and performance
Vehicles have thousands of working parts. When testing is carried out by manufacturers, it’s important to check that each element within the vehicles set up is running at the correct temperature, to prevent overheating or breakdown.
Many different applications can be tailored for including:
- Brake pad temperature sensors
- Exhaust gas thermocouples, catalytic converter or manifold temperature
- Vehicle ice warning sensors
- Cylinder head temperature sensors
- Formula 1 Racing – engine testing and tyre warming.
- Performance car part testing.
- Automotive component manufacture – see casting & foundries
- Engine performance tuning temperature sensors
These are just a few examples of how we have used our expert knowledge of automotive temperature sensors to manufacture products in the past. We can supply a temperature sensor for almost any process.
Food, Beverage and Catering
Sensors for HACCP, vending and food manufacture
We supply temperature sensor products to a number of food manufacturing companies to use in their processes. Such applications include:
- Refrigerated transportation.
- Food processors, mixers etc.
- Dairy product processing.
- Brewing process monitoring
- Candy production.
We are unique in the fact that we manufacture thermocouples and resistance thermometers using laser welding. This creates a very hygienic weld and does not add any foreign materials to the finished product such as fluxes and fillers.
Standard orders of temperature sensor equipment from customers in the catering industry typically consist of:
- Dataloggers for monitoring refrigerators in transport.
- Replacement sensors that have failed in catering equipment e.g.
ovens, fridges, freezers, or vending machines
- Hand held probes/sensors including meat pyrometers.
- Infrared thermometers.
- Custom designed temperature probes for craft beer brewers or artisan food makers.
We can help you maintain an accurate HACCP system by supplying complete temperature measurement kits with readouts for HACCP compliance.
