Customers trust us to provide accurate and reliable platinum thermocouple wire for temperature measurement applications. We earned that trust by consistently supplying high quality wire and by investing in research and development to provide greater value.
We offer Type R, Type S and Type B platinum thermocouple wire in many diameters, as well as other special alloys or coatings. Our high purity, specially calibrated platinum wire is ideal for measurement of high temperatures by voltage generated at the junction of two dissimilar metals. All thermocouple wire is calibrated to special limits or standard grade in our accredited calibration laboratory, in line with international standards.

Thermocouple temperature sensors using precious metal wire provides strong resistance to corrosion, thus guaranteeing long service life and reliable measurement accuracy.
Platinum thermocouple wire is the ideal technology for measuring high temperatures up to 1850°C. Platinum and platinum-rhodium alloys withstand corrosive environments common in the glass, steel, oil & gas, and semiconductor industry.
|Industry||Applications for platinum thermocouple wire.|
|Glass||Temperature measurement in melting furnaces and casting processes in the glass manufacturing process.|
|Metals||Thermocouples measure temperature in electrically heated furnaces used during melting, casting and hardening process of various metals.|
|Energy||Temperature measurement for oil and gas industries.|
|Semiconductor||In-situ temperature measurement for diffusion furnaces, crystal growth and epitaxy process for semiconductor and solar wafer fabrication.|
|Laboratories||Temperature measurement in calibration and analytical equipment, and small furnaces.|
|Crystal growth||Thermocouples for monitoring of furnaces used for crystal growth and semiconductor wafer production.|
We also provide fine diameter calibrated wire for RTD’s, or resistance temperature detectors. The wire is used as part of a device to accurately and quickly measure high temperatures. These devices can be constructed using various materials including platinum wire or film. RTD platinum wire is wrapped around a ceramic or glass core in a protective tube. Platinum RTD wire provides long term stable measurement, the largest temperature range and a stable resistance vs temperature profile.
For superior reliability and durability in harsh temperature environments, we recommend our high strength HTXTM platinum thermocouple wire. HTX platinum wire is designed for the most demanding applications, such as semiconductor industry wafer processes.
We also manufacture long length Mineral Insulated Metal Sheathed (MIMS) thermocouples in continuous lengths up to 18 meters. MIMS platinum thermocouples provide faster response to temperature change and are resistant to chemical and atmospheric environments.
