As well as platinum recycling many other components (such as sheaths, heads, flanges & cables) can be recovered and reused in repaired thermocouple probes. The reused components from your old sensors will reduce the cost of repaired thermocouples. We have under taken many contracts for the repair and replacement of thermocouples and we take care to consider all contamination risks while ensuring thermocouples are repaired to an “as new” condition to give maximum sensor life.
Thousands of pounds saved in silicon manufacture
A silicon manufacturer contacted us to help reduce the costs of their Type B thermocouples. Their furnace has a 50 day life, and we worked with them closely to recover as many costs as possible. We now provide a regular service conducting thermocouple repair and replacement during furnace rebuilds. This has helped reduce their costs massively, saving them thousands of pounds each year.
Depending on your thermocouple design, your processes and your volume, different sensor components can be reused. We can assess your individual needs and provide a repair service that will give you the best cost saving. Get in touch to discuss your needs.
