For 15 months in a row, Industrial Heating’s monthly economic indicators have been over 50. All four index numbers were over 56, the highest levels since March 2017.
February 2018 Index Numbers:
Change in number of request for quotes from Dec. to Jan.: +60.5
Change in number of orders from Dec. to Jan.: +56.2
Change in backlog from Dec. to Jan.: +57.2
Expected change in the health of the industry through Feb.: +60.5
What do the numbers mean?
Index numbers reflect the changes that occur when experienced companies compare their January 2018 business levels to their December 2017 levels. A number over 50 means increased activity or growth. Conversely, a number below 50 means less activity or growth.
As a supplier of vacuum and pressure seal fittings and feedthroughs, as well as temperature sensors compliant with AMS 2750E standards used in the furnacing and heat treating industries, we’re encouraged by the latest economic indicators.

Conax will be at the 2018 Hard Alloy & Powder Metallurgy Expo in Shanghai March 25-27, 2018. Now in its tenth year, this event has become one of the most important gatherings in the Powder Metallurgy industry.
We’ll be featuring our temperature sensors and compression seal fittings, which we design and manufacture for a broad range of high temperature applications across many industries. This includes:
Base metal thermocouples, including types K and N up to 1260˚C
Precious metal and refractory metal thermocouples, including types R, S, B and C up to 2315˚C
High-temperature ceramic and refractory metal sheath and specialized sheath coatings
NIST traceable sensor calibrations in compliance with AMS 2750E requirements
Dual-seal sensor construction to ensure no vacuum or pressure leakage into or out of your furnace, even if the sensor sheath is broken
If you’re attending, visit us at Booth A218 and talk to us about a solution for any application or equipment challenge you may be facing. Our commitment to providing quality, innovative products on time and at a competitive cost continue to make us an indispensable partner for every customer we serve.
We’re excited to have a booth at SEMICON China in Shanghai, coming up on March 14-16.
We’ll be exhibiting how we can help solve the most complex challenges with both standard and one-of- a-kind sensors, including:
Profile and Spike Thermocouples
Sensors for Flat Panel Glass Production Ion Implant Thermocouples
Thermocouples for Barrel Reactors
You can also get a first-hand look at our exclusive, patent-pending coating that extends the life of quartz sheath thermocouples in ASM EPSILON® reactors. Talk to us about EtchDefender™ and find out how:
Longer life equals lower spend
Less reactor downtime eliminates one to two maintenance cycles
Wafer throughput is increased by 2 to 5%
Wafer quality is improved by minimizing likelihood of wafer contaminants
No change to your susceptor ring or recipe is necessary
If you’re at the show, be sure to stop by Booth 1577 to learn how we can provide the right solution for your specific needs. For more information about the show, visit semiconchina.org/en.
