Thermo Electric Instrumentation acquired by Swedish Pentronic

On 25 October 2018, the shareholders of Thermo Electric Instrumentation B.V. have announced the sale of the company to Pentronic AB. The sale is part of Thermo Electric Instrumentation’s growth strategy that will be further accelerated through partnering with an industry partner with a complementary geographic footprint and product range.

Majority shareholder Foreman Capital, in close consultation with management, decided earlier this year to investigate the potential divestment of Thermo Electric Instrumentation in order to enable the company to accelerate its long-term growth strategy. Becoming part of a group with a complementary product portfolio and geographical footprint will allow Thermo Electric to further expand the company’s activities and realize its growth opportunities. With Pentronic AB, supported by Indutrade AB as a group holding company, Thermo Electric Instrumentation  has found such a partner. The sale of Thermo Electric Instrumentation is the logical next step following the company’s carve out from Doedijns Group International at the end of 2013. In the meantime, the company has focused on further professionalization and growth.

Pentronic, founded in 1965, is a company that manufactures temperature sensors and related items, and is seen as absolute market leader in Scandinavia. Since 2001, Pentronic has been part of Indutrade AB, a Swedish listed company with a portfolio of companies focused on high-end products and solutions. Indutrade has a long term vision which is fueled through acquisitive growth of companies active in industrial manufacturing or trading.

Thermo Electric Instrumentation B.V. will continue to operate as a standalone company with a strong product-market focus, focused on realizing its growth potential.

Christmas Colors

At Thermo Electric in Waddinxveen (NL) we are getting ready for the holiday season. The pictures were taken by our scientific analysis department and enthusiastic colleagues in our factory.  In the spirit of the holidays we envision Christmas decorations in it.
Platinum and free silicon sometimes combine and impress us with wonderful creations. Thermal effects also provide us with beautiful images and the just welded ends of temperature-sensors giving the impression of Christmas balls.
Quite often however, beyond all this beauty, lies an issue for some, and an opportunity for Thermo Electric.

TE-Masterclass

On Monday November 27th and Tuesday November 28th, Thermo Electric Instrumentation invited a wide variety of customers at their premises in the Netherlands for the TE-Masterclass. During the two-day event Thermo Electric Instrumentation provided a profound training on temperature measurement, temperature sensors and temperature calibration.

The first day was primarily focused on the basic principles of temperature measurement and the diversity in temperature sensors such as thermocouple constructions and RTD sensors. In addition to the basic theory about the sensors, participants were invited to join an in-depth discussion about obtaining the best measurement results in a wide range of applications to combine theory with daily reality.
In close cooperation with SIKA Germany, the second day of the TE-Masterclass was fully dedicated to temperature calibration. During his day the “how” and  “why” have been discussed alongside a practical training on laboratorial and portable temperature and pressure calibration.
We would like to thank all attendants for their participation and interest in the TE-Masterclass.
As the second edition of the TE-masterclass was successful, new dates and TE-masterclass topics for 2018 will follow soon! Do not miss your chance to participate in next year’s editions!

A new solution for corrosion protection

Thermo Electric and WEKA offer Halar coating: a new solution for corrosion protection of Visual Level Indicators (VLI) in explosion hazardous areas.

For many years Thermo Electric supplies WEKA level indicators; a reliable option for visualising the current fill level inside tanks. For some applications, the liquid to be measured can be very aggressive. A multinational Swedish company was searching solutions for a specific application in cleaning of drilling sludge on their FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading Units). The already existing design using materials in 316/316L needed to undergo a retrofit as they were corroding to fast. WEKA was chosen as the specialist to provide the adequate solution.

To insure flawless magnetic transmission, the float chamber is always made out of a non-magnetic material which in most cases is standard stainless steel alloy. These materials are generally sufficient for most applications in regards to corrosion resistance. For this special application however other materials needed to be used. Plastic level gauges were out of question due to the requirement for ATEX and higher graded nickel alloys were too high in material costs.

WEKA could provide an excellent solution with Halar coating (ECTFE) as a compromise with excellent corrosion resistance values, explosion protection compatibility and price.

Halar is resistant to organic solvents, caustic soda, hydrochloric acids, chlorine gas and others. It offers much better protection than for example Teflon (PTFE). The coating thickness is around 0.2mm only and therefore perfect to be used with standard WEKA level gauges.

Most important is however that WEKA was able to find a supplier for Halar coatings and still fulfil the requirements in accordance with 2014/34/EU (ATEX) or comparable regulations (e.g. IECEx).

This makes Halar coating a very cost-effective alternative product for highly corrosive liquids in the low pressure area including explosion protection.
