Widest portfolio of adsorbent technologies for a broad spectrum of applications. Catalytic converters for aircraft cabins and fuel inerting. Cathode materials, e-mobility, next-generation technology solutions. Air cleaners that help to improve indoor air quality. Solutions for the most challenging applications. BASF maintains significant diesel research and development facilities around the world. These facilities are being used to develop the technologies needed to meet the extremely low emission levels called for in new emissions regulations. As the global leader in mobile emissions catalysts, BASF has developed a number of specialized catalyst technologies. BASF offers a "full loop" of precious metals products & services. Catalysts for chemical, petrochemical, and refining industries. We offer precious metals supply and full-loop management services, including refining to recover precious metals from spent catalysts. The development of fuels and chemicals based on biological feedstocks is critical to a sustainable future and BASF is proud to provide the catalysts to support this industry. BASF has established itself as a front-runner in this field by becoming the global market leader for sodium methylate, the homogeneous catalyst used for biodiesel production. BASF catalyst technologies play a crucial role in the manufacture of a wide range of fine and specialty chemical products including flavor and fragrances, herbicides and pesticides, resins, pigments and dyestuffs, pharmaceuticals, and plastic and rubber additives. Chemistry plays an important role in the transformation of vegetable oils to products for our daily life. Catalysts are an indispensable tool to make this transformation possible. BASF offers more than 125 years of experience with oxidation catalysts. Each percent of catalyst selectivity advantage creates additional value and reduces COx emission. Solutions for power plants, process industries and more. BASF Catalysts has long been a leader in the development of highly active, robust and selective catalysts and related technologies for the destruction of volatile organic compounds (VOC). Thermocouples, pyrometers - insights for higher yields. Our contact temperature probes include high temperature thermocouples, platinum thermocouples, noble metal thermocouples, thermocouples for the glass industry, profile and spike thermocouples for diffusion furnaces, high temperature industrial thermocouples, furnace thermocouples, and high temperature thermocouple wire and cable. A specialty of BASF for many years is the glass thermocouple. We have grown with the industry and, as glass technology requirements have expanded and changed over the years. Offering excellent accuracy, resolution, repeatability, and stability, EXACTUS® optical pyrometer technology provides significant performance advantages in non-contact temperature measurement in a practical, rugged and user-friendly design.

BASF announces new website for EXACTUS® optical temperature sensors

  • Customers can download software and access documentation on the site
  • Customized configurations and quotes can be requested directly through the website

BASF announced today that it has launched a new website for EXACTUS® optical temperature sensors at: The new site features downloadable software and documentation.

“The website provides a new level of convenience for customers,” said Jim Peterson, General Manager, Temperature Sensing business at BASF. “This makes it even easier to get the industry-leading performance of our EXACTUS® pyrometers for accuracy, repeatability, and stability.”

Originally designed for semiconductor temperature measurement applications, the EXACTUS® optical temperature sensors provide significant performance advantages in non-contact temperature measurement. Applications for EXACTUS® pyrometers include semiconductor, container glass, glass fiber pulling, plastics welding, industrial heating, laser and ultrasound medical technologies.

The new site also includes access to product drawings, user guides and BASF TemperaSure®. This graphical software gives the user the ability configure instrument settings, and to log temperature readings obtained from EXACTUS® pyrometers.

For over 60 years, BASF has supplied exceptionally high-quality temperature sensing products and calibration services to the semiconductor, glass, solar cell, gas turbine, chemical, crystal growth, heat treating, and bio-medical industries. Our emphasis is on providing precise temperature measurement to meet the demanding applications of our customers.

At BASF we create chemistry for a sustainable future and develop innovative solutions that ensure the long-term success of our customers.
