We manufacture temperature sensors for a variety of industries related to power generation, including solar and waste to energy (Energy from waste). Temperature sensors are often one of many process control instruments that are critical to power generation. We supply to a wide range of organisations from nuclear power plants to district council energy recovery facilities. We supply both directly to end-user power plants and also to supporting organisations across the full life-cycle of the power generation industry.
Whatever the process, whether it is new or existing, we can supply the appropriate temperature sensor. If you are unable identify the specification of thermocouple or resistance thermometer you require, we can also help identify your requirements.
Power Plant Thermocouples
We supply several designs of thermocouples to various types of power plants, including both fossil fuel and nuclear power.
We don’t just supply directly to plants, customers also include research bodies such as the UK Atomic Energy Authority and organisations who supply the full plant life-cycle such as AMEC Foster Wheeler.
Wherever is its standard replacements of thermocouples within power plant operations or more specialist projects, we can help. Some of our projects include supplying organisations involved in acid gas management within fossil fuel power plants.
Temperature sensors for Waste to Energy (Energy from waste)
Waste-to-energy, also called Energy-from-waste is a rapidly growing area for temperature measurement. We manufacture temperature sensors for the waste-to-energy industry, with many different sensor designs suitable for different fuel inputs and waste-to-energy systems (such as fluidised bed combustion). Whether it is for power generation, heating or both we can supply temperature sensors to fit your process.
There are a couple waste treatment processes used in waste to energy including Gasification and Pyrolysis.
You can read more about these on our Waste Treatment Technology blog post.
Fuel sources for waste-to-energy plants include:
- Renewable wood biomass
- Domestic Waste
Temperature sensors for the Solar Industry
We supply temperature sensors to various points within the solar industry. This ranges from type B thermocouples used in the manufacture of silicon for photovoltaic cells, to type R thermocouples used in the operation of concentrated solar power plants. We also supply Pt100 sensors and type K thermocouples for solar thermal systems providing both energy and heating for residential and industrial properties.
We’ve made temperature sensors for the power industry for over 20 years and today we are considered the best choice for custom built temperature sensors in the UK. We continue to apply our expertise and invest in the latest technology to provide our customers with the highest quality temperature sensors available.
Contact us with your requirements if you have an existing sensor design or are unsure what you need we’ll be able to find you get the right sensor for your process.
