Process Technology Sensors

There are almost no industrial processes that do not involve temperature in some way. In many cases, temperature control and therefore temperature measurement is an essential factor for the optimal outcome of the process.

Of course, there are processes for which low-cost measurement methods with conventional sensors are adequate. But when precision and reliability are important, or when high currents, a corrosive environment or mechanical stress create harsh conditions, or when especially high or low temperatures – or both – are involved, nothing but a platinum sensor will do.

Platinum sensors from Heraeus guarantee the precision and reliability that you need for reliable process control. With their help, you achieve precise and constant measurement data with little drift even over long periods and across the particularly broad measuring range from –40°C to 1000°C. Outstanding chemical and mechanical stability and resistance to moisture, climate, and other environmental factors ensure reliable and smooth operation even under difficult conditions and help you reduce costly downtime and maintenance time.

We work with you to determine the best and most economical solution for your requirements. We offer you economical series products in thin-layer platinum technology, but also highly precise sensors adapted specifically for your application.

Heraeus combines exclusive expertise from thin-film platinum technology and circuit technology with the utmost manufacturing precision. Because of this unique combination, we are your first choice for the development of reliable and innovative solutions. We work with you to find the best solution for your needs, and we support you from the idea to design to technical support in series production.

Temperature measurement in industrial processes , power plants , mechanical and plant engineering

Platinum sensors help you monitor the temperature of your process continuously and reliably. For process technology applications, sensors in the M, L, and MN series are typically used.

Overview: Advantages for you

  • High precision over a very broad range of temperatures (to 850°C)
  • High long-term stability of measurement data, therefore particularly well suited for demanding applications in continuous operation
  • High reliability and durability
  • Availability in large quantities

Standardized characteristic curve allows sensors to be replaced with alternatives without adapting electronics. This helps you offer suitable replacement parts for your application over the long term.
