Contact Thermocouples

Our contact temperature measurement products include profile and spike thermocouples, industrial thermocouples, and high-temperature thermocouple wire and cable. We also produce epitaxial thermocouples. Our extremely wide range of products includes many that can be custom-tailored to specific customer applications.

BASF supplies precious metal thermocouples using R, S, B, PII, C and K-type wires. Platinel® is proprietary to BASF. We produce profile thermocouples with 0.020-inch wire that delivers a longer life span. And, we offer a scrap metal return program whereby old thermocouples are returned for future orders or cash.

We maintain state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Fremont, California and Rome, Italy. Extraordinary care is taken to ensure every instrument is manufactured with the highest degree of quality. Instruments are tested and calibrated against stringent standards before they leave our ISO 9001:2008 certified facilities.

We are committed to providing innovative designs, exceptional quality, rapid deliveries and competitive pricing.

Enclad Cable and Thermocouple

Enclad Cable and Thermocouple

BASF Enclad® products are a precise and rigorously controlled combination of select precious and base metal sheaths, high-purity ceramic insulations and compatible precious metal thermocouple wires consolidated into a rugged assembly which is bendable into difficult to reach places.

Epitaxial

Epitaxial

Fibro® Platinum wire can decrease thermocouple failures prior to preventative maintenance on epitaxial reactors, which lowers cost by reducing the need to take the system down prematurely.
