Conax is heading to Indianapolis for Furnaces North America October 8-10

FNA ‘18 takes place at the Indiana Convention Center

The FNA show brings together heat treating professionals from all over the world, exhibiting the latest innovations in equipment, processes and materials. With advancements in the industry happening often, FNA is a great source for seeing all the latest in one place.

A solution for in-process sheath failures

Visit us at booth #144 to see a demonstration of our Combo Fittings. A thermocouple sheath failure could mean costly in-process vacuum or pressure leaks, leading to wasted time and materials. Our Combo Fitting has two seals, one for the sheath and one for the wires. This dual-seal solution prevents leaks should the sheath become compromised, saving our customers time, money and materials and offering peace of mind.

If you can’t make it to the show but are interested in learning more about Combo Fittings, reach out to us at any time by emailing or calling us at 1.800.223.2389.

New Arizona facility for Conax

Conax Technologies has moved their Arizona facility to a new location to accelerate the pace of their continued growth in the semiconductor industry.

The new, modern facility in Tempe, AZ features expanded office space, an improved production area with additional work stations, and increased annealing capabilities.

The initial acquisition of the Arizona facility gave Conax the ability to design and manufacture quartz sheaths for thermocouples in-house, providing greater control over quality and supply. The move to this new facility enables continued routine production, while expanding our capabilities to include production of prototypes for new sensor designs.

Conax Business Unit Manager Michael Ferraro stated, “We’re continually expanding our capabilities in the growing Semiconductor industry to better meet the ever-increasing demands of our customers.”

Top 20 Power Plant Performers

More than half of the top performing plants rely on Conax products

The 2017 Power Plant Performance Report was recently released with a list of the top 20 power plants last year.

Conax Technologies congratulates the top performers and is proud to supply a wide range of Conax thermocouples to more than half of the power plants on the list. Find out more about our Power Generation solutions here.

The Power Plant Performance Report highlights the top performing natural gas, coal, and nuclear plants, according to preliminary data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA). The report is based on data and analysis provided by Energy Ventures Analysis.

Conax to attend Electrify Europe Conference June 19-21

Visit Conax Technologies at Booth A-L67 at the 2018 Electrify Europe Conference

Conax is pleased to attend the 2018 Electrify Europe Conference in Vienna, Austria with thousands of innovators and thought leaders.

Eliminating premature sensor failures

Among the latest power industry technologies and solutions, we’ll be exhibiting our patented Spring Loaded Exhaust Gas Sensor. Standard exhaust gas sensors in 7F and 9F gas turbines are at risk for premature failure. As temperatures rise, the radiation shield and sensor sheath expand at different rates, forming a gap between the seat and the radiation shield and the stop on the sensor. The sensor vibrates and the tip eventually breaks, causing the sensor to fail and the gas turbine to trip.

Conax created the Spring Loaded Exhaust Gas Sensor, featuring a high-temperature compression spring that is inserted between two spacer tubes. The spring minimizes vibration, which means the sensor is less likely to fail and break. This solution has proven to increase sensor life and provide thousands of hours of operation without failures, preventing downtime and saving money. Click here to view a video demo.

Upgrade for GE Turbines to be Featured at Trade Show

This year’s Frame 6 Users Conference takes us to Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida June 12.

At the show, we’ll be demonstrating our kit that replaces exhaust gas thermocouple sensors in older GE frame turbines. This kit lets operators replace sensors without having to replace the entire thermocouple. The solution provides a longer lasting sensor—meaning less maintenance time.

Cable assemblies are custom manufactured to the desired length and remain fixed in the turbine hot box, only the sensor needs to be removed. Cable assemblies are made from 18 AWG stranded conductors with PFA insulation and are jacketed with stainless steel over braid.

To learn more about this year’s show, visit We’ll be at booth #34. We hope to see you there.
