Trace heating for gas analysis

Customized solutions are the supreme discipline for the thermal experts. They recently received an inquiry from a gas manufacturer who needed a precise and constant temperature for its gas analysis. With clear specifications for the mass flow and pressure as well as the target temperature, a trace heating system had to be cleverly installed in a system with very limited space. Thanks to their experience and high-quality materials, the experts mastered this challenging task to the customer's complete satisfaction - because, in addition, the price-performance ratio and the deadlines were right.

About ThermoExpert

Die ThermoExpert Deutschland GmbH gehört bundesweit zu den führenden Anbietern für individuelle Lösungen im Bereich der Temperaturerzeugung – Stichwort: Heizleiter oder Begleitheizung. Auf der Basis robuster mineralisolierter Mantelleitungen können Stoffe beispielsweise in Edelstahlrohren auf Temperaturen bis zu 800 °C und in Inconelrohren auf bis zu 1.000°C erhitzt werden. Dabei spielen der Mantelwerkstoff sowie die Beschaffenheit und Stärke der Innenader eine große Rolle in puncto Widerstand und Heizleistung. Der Clou: Die mineralisolierten Mantelleitungen sind flexibel zu verlegen – im Durchmesser von 0,5-10mm – so dass auch auf engstem Raum eine Begleitheizung eingebaut werden kann. Dank des Know-hows der ThermoExperten erhalten alle Kunden die für sie richtige Lösung – ganz gleich welche maximale Einsatztemperatur oder welche chemische Beständigkeit in der jeweiligen Konstruktion benötigt wird.

Thermal imaging camera detects hot spots and cold spots in the heating application

A thermal imaging camera is used whenever a high degree of measurement accuracy of the temperature distribution is required - because the development of individual heating applications is often a matter of millimetres and milliseconds. In addition to the FEM analysis, the thermal imaging camera can be used not only to simulate the temperature distribution, but also to map it in real time. The temperature of metal surfaces can thus be measured precisely without contact in the temperature range from 450°C to 1,800°C. The measuring accuracy is ±2 %.

Sheathed thermocouples with tapered measuring point

Sheathed thermocouples with a tapered measuring point are our answer to the question of short response times but stable and resilient processing or when, for example, threaded holes require a taper due to their design. Only one end of the thermocouple, including the measuring point, is reduced in diameter so that it remains extremely robust overall and can be ideally inserted into holes or threads using welding sleeves or through-bore fittings.

Miniature sheathed thermocouples type K

To be honest, we are really proud of our "smallest" products, namely our miniature sheathed thermocouples with an outer diameter of less than 0.5 mm. They are primarily used where very fast response times are required with very thin outer diameters, e.g. for measuring the temperature of spark plugs or engine test benches. If vibrations and similar mechanical stresses prevent the use of resistance thermometers, the miniature sheathed thermocouples are also the ideal solution.

Typical application examples for sheathed thermocouples

Sheathed thermocouples, also known as sheathed thermocouples, are used in various industries and applications where precise temperature measurements are required. This type of thermocouple consists of two different metallic conductors that are connected at one end and open at the other. The open ends are placed at the location where the temperature is to be measured. ThermoExpert° Deutschland GmbH, with its managing directors Heiko Gevert and Andreas Helf, has been a partner to all these branches of industry and research for many years. The range of applications for thermocouples is almost unlimited - as is the wealth of ideas for helping customers achieve their goals.

international employees live by perfect teamwork at ThermoExpert

Perfect teamwork

Finding qualified employees is certainly a challenge. Unfortunately, our industry is no exception. We are therefore all the happier that we were able to recruit a new colleague from Syria for our team despite a number of hurdles. There were hurdles both for the new colleague, whose degree in measurement technology was not recognized by the German authorities, and for us, as we also had to deal with a few piles of small print as an employer.

At the end of the day, however, we have gained a valuable, committed new employee for our international team. We tend to see different cultures as an enrichment and as an employer we make it possible to live them.
