Thermocouple Alloys

Furukawa has 50 years of history in manufacturing high quality temperature measurement materials, thermocouples and extension wires. We have fully integrated production systems, covering the whole process from melting to semi-finished products. The temperature measurement industry increasingly demands high precision and reliable ‘Thermocouple’ materials (e.g. Type K & Type N). Furukawa is capable of serving this growing demand with its rich experience and technical aptitude. Our products comply with all major international standards and we can customise the product according to our customer’s specification requirements.

(UC) A thermocouple is an electrical device consisting of two dissimilar electrical conductors forming an electrical junction. It produces a temperature-dependent voltage as a result of the Seebeck effect, and this voltage can be interpreted to measure temperature. Thermocouples are widely used as temperature sensors, because of the high reliability from the long life stability, heat-resistance and mechanical strength.

Furukawa can offer a variety of highly accurate and highly reliable thermocouple wires that meet the needs of users, with integrated manufacturing process from melting and casting to product sizes.

Extension wire

(UC) An extension wire is a lead wire that has almost the same thermoelectromotive force characteristics as the thermocouple used in combination. It connects the thermocouple and the receiver and the performance is important for high precision control, as same as thermocouple wire.
Furukawa manufactures extension wires that satisfy various standards under an integrated quality control system from melting and casting to product sizes, and have an overwhelming track record in this field.

Furukawa-SKNH Thermocouple Alloy for High Temperature Application

(UC) Furukawa-SKNH alloy can satisfy increasing demands on the performance and accuracy of Type K thermocouples and for serving longer periods of time at the high temperature. Furukawa-SKNH is the KN leg of Type K, the EMF property behaves the same as regular KN, however it offers advantages when used for Mineral Insulated Cables. It has many achievements not only in Japan but also in Europe and the United States, and is widely used in electric power-related, aircraft-related, and other plants.
