About Us

Peak Sensors Are Temperature Sensor Experts

We improve your process control. We develop OEM sensors for your products.

Thermocouples and resistance thermometers made in the UK

We make temperature sensors, mainly thermocouples and resistance thermometers. We’re based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire and our sensors are used in a wide variety of industries all over the world. We’ve been manufacturing sensors since 1997, and have been a stable supplier to our ever increasing list of customers. Unlike our competitors who make many types of sensor such as flow, pressure or strain, we focus solely on temperature sensor manufacture, and supplying related temperature sensor components. We also offer a range of allied services including thermocouple calibration and platinum recycling.

Our Priorities

    We focus on temperature sensors and related equipment. We have extensive knowledge in this area. We don’t supply or make flow, level, humidity or pressure sensors.

  • Satisfying customers long-term

    We aim to satisfy our customers needs. We want our customers to come back to us because we provide real value to them.

  • Solving the worlds temperature measurement problems

    Our objective is to help our customers solve their temperature measurement problem. From cost-effective replacement sensors to finding the right sensor for your new product or process. Whatever you need, we can help.
