Experience with platinum temperature probes for over 100 years

Whether refinery, power plant, solar thermal system, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) - Safety and the efficiency of these systems depend, among other things, on the smallest components - the temperature sensor element. Platinum sensors offer you a wide range of advantages.

Reliability means low maintenance and cost effectiveness

Platinum elements offer the best value in temperature sensing, as well as the lowest cost over the operating lifetime.

Through

  • the long-term stability of the measured values
  • the reliability
  • and the longevity

of platinum sensors considerable cost savings are realized.

Standardized characteristic curves, defined by the DIN EN 60751 specification, allow quick and easy platinum sensor replacement even decades after original installation.
