High Pressure Thermocouples and RTDs
Our extensive knowledge of the science of temperature measurement and the physical
properties of materials enables our engineers to recommend the most effective solutions
for various application needs.
Conax has designed customized solutions for customers’ specific high pressure
Thermocouple and RTD Sensor Assemblies
Compression Seal Feedthroughs and Fittings for Wires and Probes
Our sophisticated in-house manufacturing and testing expertise enables us to certify units for these extreme applications.
High Pressure Compression Seal Feedthroughs and Fittings
Conax also manufactures high pressure seals (also known as glands) for electrodes, instrument signal wires and temperature sensor leads. High pressure seals are designed for installation onto the pressure vessel wall using threaded mounting configurations and metal to metal seals.

Rick is a proud father of two. He enjoys travel and, in his spare time, Rick can be found aboard a cruise ship. Welcome Rick! We’re thrilled you’re part of the Conax crew.
We’ve recently moved to a new office in China. The new space is located in Room 505, Building 5, No. 658 Jinzhong Road, Changning District, Shanghai City. The office was formerly located in Room 211, Building 44, No. 258 Xinzhuan Road, Songjiang District Caohejing Developing Zone High Science and Technology Park.
The modern space allows us to be closer to air travel for the convenience of customers and traveling Conax team members.
Isa has recently joined Conax as a member of our Inside Sales and Logistics Team in our Shanghai office, providing logistical support. Prior to joining us, Isa worked for a Shanghai trade company where she managed customer accounts, shipments and service.
In her spare time, she enjoys playing badminton and table tennis, watching movies and animation and spending time with her friends.
With her previous inside sales experience and track record of reliability and accuracy, we’re thrilled to have Isa on our team. Welcome!
Largest Gathering of Power Professionals Takes Place December 5-7
We’re off to Las Vegas December 5-7 to talk trends, new technology and problems facing the power generation industry. We’ll join 1,400 exhibitors at the largest gathering of power professionals worldwide.
Attendees will learn from power generation experts about cutting costs, reducing risk and maximizing efficiency.
Eliminating premature sensor failures
At this year’s show, we’re 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 down time and saving money. Click here to view a video demo.

If you’re at the show, stop by Booth 6537 and see us!
We’re headed to Munich, Germany from November 14-17 to SEMICON Europa. This is an exciting event, as it’s an opportunity to exchange ideas about electronics with experts from all over the world.
Extending the life of thermocouples
We’re proud to bring EtchDefender™ to SEMICON Europa. This patent-pending technology, developed by Conax, extends the life of quartz thermocouple sheaths in certain epitaxial reactors. With Conax’s patent-pending EtchDefender™ coating, quartz items exposed to temperatures up to 1200˚C and Hydrochloric etch cleaning cycles last up to 3x longer, reducing the frequency of maintenance cycles required to keep tools up and running.
See how EtchDefenter™ can extend the life of thermocouples
When standard exhaust gas sensors in 7F and 9F gas turbines routinely failed prematurely, our team of engineers devised a solution to extend the life of the sensors and eliminate premature failures.
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.
Solution: Spring loaded gas exhaust sensors from Conax
To prevent this from occurring, Conax created the spring loaded gas exhaust sensor. The spring loaded gas exhaust sensor is 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 down time and saving money.
