UK Manufactured Mineral Insulated RTDs
We manufacture and design mineral insulated resistance thermometers. Resistance thermometers are often called platinum resistance thermometers (PRTs), resistance thermometer detectors (RTDs) or simply Pt100 sensors. Mineral insulated resistance thermometers consists of an external metal sheath which protects the P100 element from damage and contamination. This outer sheath is insulated with magnesium oxide powder, tightly packed so no air is trapped inside. This not only gives great thermal conductivity but mineral insulated RTD can be bent into a variety of shapes to suit your application.
Made to your specification
There are a wide range of options for our MI resistance thermometers. They can be constructed with various diameters and materials of sheath, many different RTD types (Pt100, Pt1000 etc) and with our laser welder, mineral insulated RTD lengths are practically limitless.

There are a variety of options when it comes to MI RTD design. Select the appropriate design below to view full specifications.
Common designs include:
All our mineral insulated resistance thermometers are custom made, as such we are able to tailor your sensors exactly to your requirements. There are many options available including:
Pt100 B as standard with Pt100 A, 1/3,1/5,1/10 DIN, Pt 50, Pt 500, Pt 1000 and Pt 2000 available on request.
Flange or compression fittings can be added such as an adjustable or welded flange on shank.
Full UKAS or UKAS traceable calibration is available. AMS 2750 F to full or traceable calibration is available.
Resistance thermometers can be supplied duplex instead of simplex.
Material certificates are available on request.
Reduced tip options
Reduced hot junction for fast response or cost saving.
High Temperature Versions
High temperature options for plugs, sockets and cable can be supplied.
3 wire as standard, marked red/red/white, with 2 or 4 wires on request.
Bent to shape
We’ve made mineral insulated resistance thermometers for over 25 years and today we are considered the best choice for custom built temperature sensors in the UK. We continue to apply our expertise and invest in the latest technology to provide our customers with the highest quality temperature sensors available.
