Pharmaceutical
Conax is the U.S. distributor for Sterisensor™ and Sterimaster™ load probes that are used for FDA required processes and temperature control. The environmental conditions found in pharmaceutical autoclave chambers are extreme for any equipment. These conditions are a major cause of sensor failure in chamber/load probes due to the ingress of moisture into the sensor and the unacceptable leakage of steam/condensate through the bulkhead connection. Designed to withstand these extreme environmental conditions, the Sterisensor’s engineered moisture seal prevents the ingress of moisture, which is the leading cause of failure. Similarly, the Sterimaster Chamber/Load Sensor has been specially engineered to withstand these conditions and offers a reliability factor surpassing anything previously obtainable. Every weld undergoes NDT examination and each completed assembly is leak tested.

Quartz Fabrication
Expanding our focus in the growing Semiconductor industry, Conax now has in-house capabilities to design and manufacture quartz sheaths for temperature sensors. Many of the temperature sensors used inside process chambers need a semiconductor-grade quartz sheath to protect them from the chemicals and temperatures present. Conax identified this as an area in which we can better serve our customers. By producing the sheaths in-house, we maintain greater control over quality and supply; and we can provide our customers with the quality products they need faster.
