Base Metal Thermocouples
Learn more about our Base Metal Thermocouples
UK Manufactured Base Metal Thermocouples
We manufacture and design base metal thermocouple assemblies. Base metal thermocouples are made from conductors containing nickel alloys and depending on thermocouple type are suited for measuring temperatures between -270 to +1300°C. They are a rugged design, suited for tough industrial use.

Base Metal Designs
The base metal thermocouple junction will need contamination protection from the process it is measuring. Each thermocouple should have a protection sheath best suited to its application.
Base Metal Thermocouple Types
There are five types of base metal thermocouple all made from nickel alloys with slightly different characteristics and specifications.
Type J Thermocouple
Good in dry & reducing atmospheres.
Type K Thermocouple
The most common type of thermocouple.
Type N Thermocouple
Type E Thermocouple
High EMF output. Suited to cryogenic use.
Type T Thermocouple
Cryogenic sensor. Copes with water present.
All our base metal thermocouples are custom made, as such we are able to tailor your sensors exactly to your requirements. There are many options available including:
Materials which would work best in your process are available on request.
Pressure testing can be conducted and pressure tight designs are available.
Wear and chemical resistant coatings can be applied to sensors e.g. ACT™.
Ceramic lining sheaths can be added to increase heat resistance.
Full UKAS or UKAS traceable calibration is available. AMS 2750 F to full or traceable calibration is available.
Flange or compression fittings can be added such as an adjustable or welded flange on shank
Material certificates are available on request.
Duplex & Triplex
Thermocouples can be supply duplex or triplex instead of simplex.
High temperature compensating cable can be supplied fitted to sensor.
Reduced tip options
Reduced hot junction for fast response or cost saving.
We’ve made base metal thermocouples for over 15 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.
Contact us with your requirements if you have an existing sensor design or are unsure what you need we’ll be able to find you get the right sensor for your process.
