High-pre­ci­sion plat­inum sen­sors for med­ical and den­tal technology

With its new plat­inum sen­sors, hotset is push­ing for­ward in­to the up­per per­for­mance ranges of con­tact­ing high-tem­per­a­ture mea­sure­ment. This is be­cause the pre­cious met­al sen­sors, which are of­fered in var­i­ous con­fig­u­ra­tions, are suit­able for ap­pli­ca­tion tem­per­a­tures of up to 1,600° C and meet high re­quire­ments for mea­sure­ment ac­cu­ra­cy. In med­ical and den­tal tech­nol­o­gy, they are al­ready be­ing used as part of in­no­v­a­tive sin­ter­ing and glaz­ing processes.

Nu­mer­ous process­es in mod­ern med­ical and den­tal tech­nol­o­gy are based on the use of high tem­per­a­tures of 900° C and more. These in­clude, for ex­am­ple, a range of sin­ter­ing, glaz­ing, melt­ing and plas­ma tech­nolo­gies used for the man­u­fac­ture and sur­face fin­ish­ing of in­stru­ments and im­plants. Nu­mer­ous high-tem­per­a­ture process­es are al­so found in an­a­lyt­i­cal and lab­o­ra­to­ry tech­nol­o­gy — for ex­am­ple, in au­to­clave and re­ac­tor sys­tems for car­ry­ing out hy­dro­gena­tions or cat­a­lyst tests. De­signed for use in such de­mand­ing ar­eas are the new HT1600‑P plat­inum probes from hotset, with which the well-known ther­mo­dy­nam­ics spe­cial­ist is ex­pand­ing the se­lec­tion of tem­per­a­ture sen­sors in its hot­con­trol prod­uct line. De­vice and equip­ment man­u­fac­tur­ers in the med­ical, den­tal and lab­o­ra­to­ry tech­nol­o­gy sec­tors thus have a high-qual­i­ty pre­mi­um so­lu­tion for the re­al­iza­tion of in­no­v­a­tive high-tech applications.

Pre­ci­sion so­lu­tion for high-temp applications

As the nam­ing sug­gests, the new pre­cious met­al sen­sor from hotset is suit­able for mea­sur­ing and mon­i­tor­ing tem­per­a­tures of up to 1,600° C. It scores points across the en­tire tem­per­a­ture range. It scores over the en­tire mea­sur­ing range with very high ac­cu­ra­cies. “Even in the up­per­most tem­per­a­ture zones, the HT1600‑P con­vinces with the small­est de­vi­a­tions of on­ly +/- 1.0° C,” says hotset prod­uct man­ag­er Adri­an Stro­jny. Due to this high ac­cu­ra­cy, plat­inum probes are al­so used as ref­er­ences or stan­dards in cal­i­bra­tion tech­nol­o­gy. For man­u­fac­tur­ers of med­ical and lab­o­ra­to­ry tech­nol­o­gy, this opens up new av­enues for the de­vel­op­ment of high-temp so­lu­tions that re­quire above-av­er­age tem­per­a­ture guid­ance and parameterization.

Much scope for spe­cial requests

Gen­er­al­ly, hotset of­fers the new HT1600‑P plat­inum sen­sors in three ba­sic con­fig­u­ra­tions: As a tem­per­a­ture sen­sor in straight de­sign ac­cord­ing to DIN EN 50446, as a ther­mo­cou­ple with wire pair ac­cord­ing to DIN EN 60584 as well as ANSI 96.1, and as a sheathed ther­mo­cou­ple ac­cord­ing to DIN EN 61515 with thin-walled, flex­i­ble sheathed wires. “As usu­al with our ther­mo­cou­ples, how­ev­er, we al­ways tai­lor the con­struc­tion and de­sign of each HT1600‑P to the spe­cif­ic ideas and re­quire­ments of our cus­tomers,” em­pha­sizes Prod­uct Man­ag­er Adri­an Stro­jny. The pos­si­bil­i­ties of hotset reach here from the se­lec­tion of many dif­fer­ent con­nec­tion con­tacts over the con­ver­sion of spe­cial de­sires re­gard­ing the shap­ing of the mea­sur­ing sen­sor up to the ad­just­ment to dif­fi­cult in­stal­la­tion sit­u­a­tions or the cal­i­bra­tion and sta­bi­liza­tion of the ther­mo­cou­ple by pur­pose­ful tempering.

Op­ti­mal un­der pro­tec­tive gas

The op­ti­mal sur­round­ing field for the new plat­inum sen­sors HT1600‑P of hotset form ap­pli­ca­tions with pro­tec­tive gas at­mos­phere. How­ev­er, they can al­so be used in nor­mal air en­vi­ron­ments. De­vice and equip­ment man­u­fac­tur­ers in med­ical and lab­o­ra­to­ry tech­nol­o­gy who need a high-pre­ci­sion sen­sor for the con­trol, de­tec­tion and mon­i­tor­ing of high-tem­per­a­ture process­es, which can al­so con­vince with short re­sponse times and long-term sta­bil­i­ty, re­ceive an ex­treme­ly high-qual­i­ty sen­sor so­lu­tion with the HT1600‑P from hotset.
