Inproheat Industries offers thermocouples manufactured by Heraeus Electronite for use in steel production and casting-related applications. Thermocouples acquire reliable temperature information from liquid metal.
Thermocouples are especially notable for two different measurement features – spot measurement and continuous measurement.
Widely used in foundry settings during the production of steel, spot measurement by thermocouples allows quick readings of temperatures. Thermocouples for spot measurement have a variety of design sizes to match the application at hand with the added safety component of non-splash technology.
Spot measurement thermocouples utilize Positherm® and Positherm® Non-Splash sensor options along with DigiTemp-E and iM² Sensor Lab® instruments.
Commonly integrated with casting applications, continuous measurement from thermocouples provides equal accuracy as spot measurement readings with a similar level of design flexibility for both the thermocouples and their accessories. Thermocouples designed for continuous measurement utilize infrared and cooling technology along with user-friendly display capabilities for reliable, ongoing temperature readings.
Continuous measurement thermocouples feature CasTemp®, Contitherm®, Contilance, HFC-IV sensor options.
In metallurgical industry-related settings such as mills and foundries, thermocouples often gauge furnaces, ladles, and tundishes for temperature readings.
