High Temperature Cable Part 2

Fibreglass High Temperature Cable Welcome to part two of our high temperature cable blog, the last blog we discussed our range of PVC, Polyamide and Teflon cables. This week it is all about Fibreglass which is ideally used for high temperatures up to 480°C.

High Temperature Cable Part 1

When choosing your high temperature cable care must be taken. There are many types of insulation used with varying degrees of thermal resistance and tensile strength. D&N supply such a wide range we will be separating this blog into two parts. This article will look at our range of PVC, Polyamide and Teflon high temperature… Read more »

Selecting Type K

As previously mentioned, Thermocouples comes in a wide range of calibrations. Among these calibrations Type K is the most popular choice for high temperature measurement. But does this mean it’s the best option for you? Today we look at what you should consider before purchasing your Type K Thermocouple.

RTDs In Depth

Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs) rely on the predictable and repeatable phenomena of the electrical resistance of metals changing with temperature. The most common metals used for temperature sensing are platinum, nickel and copper.

Carbon Bake Furnace Specialists

A carbon bake furnace (CBF) is a super-sized oven which bakes carbon blocks, called “anodes”. These blocks are required in the aluminium production process. D&N Engineering has been operating since 1974. During that time, we have worked extensively with Tomago & Hydro Aluminium providing solutions to assist them in improving and maintaining their CBF processes…. Read more »

Stellite Coated Thermowells

As mentioned in our last blog “choosing your thermowell” a thermowell will keep your temperature device protected. But, in some industrial processes the extreme environments that a standard thermowell is exposed can significantly decrease the thermowells lifespan, and can put your temperature device at risk. For example, in power station processes pulverized coal dust travels… Read more »

Choosing your Thermowell

In some cases, not using a thermowell can cause irreversible damage to your temperature sensor. In this article we will explain what is a thermowell, why you would need one, and what process you should follow when selecting a well for your project. Thermowells are tubular fittings used to protect temperature sensors in industrial processes…. Read more »

Embracing LEAN Systems

D&N Engineering was founded on the vision “willing to take on any challenge, large or small” and it still rings true today. So in early 2014 when faced with the challenge of staying competitive in an increasing difficult market we did what we do best… found a solution. With the help of our friends from the… Read more »

The Hard Facts of Sheath Material

A Thermocouple is a versatile temperature measurement device and can be exposed to extreme environments. When this is the case, your choice of Sheath material is most important as different materials come with varied temperature ranges, melting points and chemical resistance. This week we will look at the different sheath material available and provide you… Read more »
