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 supplies environmental catalysts and technologies which reduce emissions from stationary sources and industrial processes. 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. BASF offers a broad variety of competencies, technologies and products to the fuel cell industry. With our long term experience in the fuel processing area we deliver adsorbents and catalysts needed to generate hydrogen for fuel cell applications with high efficiency. 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. As a world leader in emissions control technologies, BASF Catalysts has extensive experience in reducing oxides of nitrogen (NOx) as well as carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HC) and particulate matter (PM) produced in equipment used for material handling, mining and construction, and power generation. 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 profile and spike thermocouples, industrial thermocouples, fiberglass thermocouples, furnace thermocouples, and high-temperature thermocouple wire and cable. We also produce epitaxial thermocouples. Glass Industry Thermocouples have been a specialty of BASF for over 100 years. 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.

Thermocouples for the Glass Industry

Two catalogs are presently available that cover melter crown and bottom/sidewall thermocouples. These catalogs, besides providing design characteristics for each application offer suggestions for installation which can extend life and performance.

Copies of these catalogs will be sent if you send an e-mail request and reference "Glass Thermocouple" in the subject.

With manufacturing facilities located around the world, complete precious metal management resources, passion for technology and commitment to customer service, BASF is uniquely positioned to be your premier supplier for your temperature sensing requirements.
