The Chemical Industry’s Hub for Dependable Brands
The Chemical Processing Industry is one of the United States’ largest manufacturing industries, serving both a sizable domestic market and an expanding global market. It is also one of the top exporting sectors of U.S. manufacturing. Accounting for almost 15 percent of global chemical shipments, the United States is a world leader in chemical production and exports.
In 2016, the U.S. chemical industry had final sales exceeding $800 billion and directly employed more than 811,000 workers, with additional indirect employment by industry suppliers of more than 2.7 million. With investments of $91 billion in research and development in 2016 and a record of strong enforcement of intellectual property rights, the chemical industry accounts for a significant portion of patents granted in the United States.1
Temperature & Level Measurement Solutions
Electrical Temperature Measurement
The WIKA product portfolio for electrical temperature measurement includes thermocouples, resistance temperature sensors (with optional on-site display), temperature switches as well as analog and digital temperature transmitter for all industrial applications.
Mechanical Temperature Measurement
The mechanical temperature measuring instruments work on the bimetal expansion, or gas actuation principle and cover scale ranges from -200 … +700 °C, -328 … +1292 °F. As a result of the integration of switch contacts and output signals into our mechanical temperature measuring instruments, we can offer a wide variety of combined instruments. With switch contacts, the pointer position triggers a change-over.
A comprehensive range of level measuring instruments available for temperatures up to 540 °C / 1000 °F, specific gravity from .35 and pressure ranges up to 5000 PSI. This includes standard instruments and customized products.
Pyromation produces temperature sensors that meet these specifications for almost every application within the industry, has designed and developed many sanitary CIP (Clean-In-Place) sensors that are 3-A approved, and builds a variety of explosion-proof sensor assemblies, which are approved by CSA and FM for use in hazardous locations in the U.S. and Canada.
Oil and Gas Sector
For the multiple processes in the extraction, production, refining, and distribution of oil, gas and other petrochemicals, Pyromation offers a number of temperature sensors and also carries a broad line of explosion-proof sensor assemblies approved by FM and CSA for use in U.S. and Canadian hazardous locations. Pyromation also produces thermocouples for use in engine monitoring in heavy-duty distribution vehicles and extraction equipment.
Medium to high-temperature sensors for incineration applications are available in a variety of options from Pyromation. The protection tubes on these sensors range from standard service for low-corrosive environments to Recrystallized Silicon Carbide (RSiC) for highly corrosive applications. These sensors can be calibrated to comply with EPA guidelines.
Heat Treating Sector
Pyromation offers thermocouples that meet furnace certifications, as well as Magnesium Oxide (MgO) thermocouples that can be formed to fit almost any application. Thermocouples with protection tubes are available for insertion in high temperature, industrial processes.
