Thermowell & Sensor Probe Coating Service
Fluoroplastics are the ideal material for covering and encapsulating instrumentation probes.
The material is resistant to virtually all chemicals at temperatures over 200 °C, and is available with FDA approval.
Adtech use a variety of technologies to encapsulate measurement elements - typically thermocouples, thermisters, bimetallics for temperature control, and also capacitance and magnetic for level and proximity detection.
Techniques used include FEP shrinkable tubing, moulding, spray coating, and fluoroplastic welding. This enables us to produce probe covers from 0.5mm to 40mm diameter, and any length. We also encapsulate mercury in glass thermometers for shatterproofing.
None of our customers' applications are exactly the same. So if you're still not sure which products are right for your particular application, no matter how aggressive the environment, then contact our customer service team on +44 (0) 1285 762000 or email@example.com.
Once an FEP, PTFE, or PFA coating is applied to your sensor, it will offer the following properties: non-stick, chemically inert, able to work at elevated temperatures. The maximum working temperature for our FEP coating is 200°C. For applications that require a higher temperature than this, you should select a PTFE or PFA coating, which will withstand 260°C.
