We manufacture temperature sensors for a variety of industries related to mineral products, including brick kilns, concrete curing and clinker/cement production. Temperature control is critical in the manufacture of bricks, cement and precast concrete to reduce energy and maintenance costs. We supply both directly to end-user plants and also to supporting organisations across the full life-cycle of the mineral products 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.

Temperature sensors for Brick Plants

We supply several designs of thermocouples to brick plants for use in various brick kilns. The faster bricks are fired in a kiln the lower the fuel consumption and energy costs can be saved. We have supplied thermocouples for a number of areas of brick manufacture including travelling thermocouples, air conditioning sensors, kiln control thermocouples and drying sensors.

Mainly type N and K themocouples are used in brick plants, often with Nicrobell/Pyrosil sheathing.

Temperature sensors for Precast Concrete Manufacture

We make temperature sensors for the precast concrete curing process. Its critical that precast elements have good temperature control while they are cured to ensure they are cast to full strength. We have supplied sensors for precast items such as precast pipes and railway sleepers. We have also manufactured various drying room thermocouples.

Temperature sensors for Cement Plants

We supply temperature sensors to various points within the cement manufacturing process. This ranges from type R thermocouples to 4-wire Pt100 resistance thermometers. Adequate temperature control reduces maintenance and energy costs. There are a wide variety of areas we have supplied sensors for including:

  • Pre-heater furnace thermocouples
  • Rotary kiln thermocouples
  • Clinker cooling
  • Cement mill sensors
  • Smoke-box sensors
