TEMPERATURE SENSOR CABLES
Thermocouple cables, RTD, extension and isolated compensating
The cables for temperature sensors are the heart of instruments that measure temperature because they are the ones that form the circuit that determines the difference in potential (thermocouple) or transmit the electrical signal (RTD), which then in both cases the measuring instruments convert into the temperature reading.
Siccet provides temperature sensor manufacturers with a wide range of solutions for thermocouple cables, RTDs, extensions and isolated compensating with high performance materials.
The temperature is one of the most important parameters to be monitored in many industrial processes and in the control of the operation of motors, turbines etc.
For example, the exact determination of this parameter makes the difference in the control of a chemical reaction, in the productivity of a refining process, the efficiency of a metallurgical furnace and for the safety of the workplace or the machinery/motors used.
The care and control during production of Siccet cables ensures quality and performance.
The cables offered by Siccet meet the requirements of IEC, ASTM, JIS, BS, DIN, and NFE standards
SPECIAL CABLES FOR INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS
Special cables manufactured with PFA/Silicone, PVC, MFA/Fiberglass
Siccet produces special cables for applications in extremely harsh environments through the presence of high temperatures, chemical agents, mechanical stress.
Access to innovative materials (such as the new Hyflon PFA 100 series with a thermal rating of up to 300 °C) and high performers such as the fluoropolymers, Kapton® or ceramic fibres allow Siccet cables to be used in various industrial applications, such as the production of composites for aerospace, the furnaces in the metallurgical industry, turbines for energy production, reactors and refining columns in the chemical and petrochemical industries, and downhole signal cables in Oil & Gas.
Composite cables manufactured with MFA®/PVC, MFA®/Silicone, XLPE/PUR
Upon request, Siccet provides multiple cables where types of cables with different functions are combined into a single cable even on different layers with metallic screens, reinforcements and fillers.
Siccet supports its customers in the best construction of the cable and the eventual choice of materials thanks to its know-how and experience in the sector, established and recognized over the years.
FIRE RESISTANT CABLES
Fire resistant cables manufactured with Silicone/MICA®, MICA®/Quartz fiber, ceramic fiber
In the workplace, control rooms, civil buildings, means of transport, it is important for signalling or connection cables to continue operating even in case of fire.
Special Mica® taping and/or glass fibre and ceramics covering allow Siccet cables to pass the flame retardant tests type EN50200 or IEC 60331.
Moreover, the use of LS0H materials for outer sheaths responds to the low levels needs of smoke and toxicity.
CABLES FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE ELECTRICAL RESISTANCES
Industrial applications often require electrical heaters which are able to provide the right balance among flexibility, performance and convenience. These parts use cables that must withstand high temperatures, voltages up to 2 KV and perform in harsh environments. For these applications Siccet offers a special range of nickel plated copper or pure nickel cables insulated with PTFE and/or fiberglass impregnated with special resins.
OIL AND GAS
The Oil&Gas industry is faced with constant changes.
Siccet is present in the Oil&Gas sector with its high temperature special cables, as well as thermocouples and RTDs cables, to ensure maximum resistance and functionality.
Our cables solutions are primarily destined to two of the Oil&Gas key segments:
- upstream, exploration and production
- downstream, refining
The drilling and exploration sector needs ever more innovative solutions to cope with high temperatures and aggressive environments. The "real time" measuring of temperature becomes a primary need to optimize production and cable construction must be accurate to suitably respond to different conditions.
Siccet makes available its expertise in high temperatures and temperature sensors cables, being also able to offer accurate tolerances on the cables outer dimensions and supply long lengths spools.
METAL WORKING INDUSTRY
Kilns, furnaces for heat treatment, metal production requires among the best performing temperature sensors for accuracy and resistance to high temperatures.
The cables must withstand:
- Temperatures up to 1200 °C
- Fire and/or flame propagation
- Mechanical stress at high temperatures
Over time, Siccet has developed thermocouple, extension and compensating cables with HT glass fibre, quartz and ceramic to withstand temperatures up to 1200 °C.
The durability of these cables ensure low maintenance costs.
Siccet supports the energy industry with innovative solutions that can stand the test of time and thus enable high performance and low maintenance costs.
The energy sector requires the use of cables that may have:
- Temperature resistance
- Resistance to oils
- Abrasion and tear resistance
- Electromagnetic disturbances screens
The coupling of special materials such as fluorine polymers, mica, anti-tear silicone rubber that Siccet has and specific tests on the basis of the reference standards ensures quality and contained costs.
Among other applications Siccet is present with its turbine cables that pass the Ansaldo specifications.
Aerospace composites are increasingly important parts for aircraft structures ensuring strength and lightness at the same time. The accurate production process of these composites in autoclaves requires several temperature sensors.
- Temperature resistance
- Resistance to liquid penetration
For example, for this industry, Siccet provides fluoro-polymer coated, flat thermocouple cables type K, J, T.
Industrial ovens for cooking food or for drying pasta require an accurate measurement of temperature and are very critical environments for the cables. Therefore, the required properties are:
- Resistance to humidity
- Resistance to high temperatures peaking over 300 °C
- Mechanical resistance to bending
- Resistance to residual food and washing
Siccet responds to these requirements with multiple thermocouple cables in PTFE to ensure best performance. Furthermore, continuous research on new materials and construction is at your disposal with new solutions that can lengthen the lives of these cables.
CHEMICAL AND PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRIES
The chemical and pharmaceutical industry environments may present high levels of criticality due to the presence of aggressive liquids and/or vapours. The cables must therefore have:
- Chemical resistance
- Permeation resistance
- Temperature resistance
- Elevated purity (especially in the pharmaceutical industry)
Siccet provides its customers with a wide range of multiple thermocouple, extension and compensating cables which, according to the temperature of use, combine the listed properties. Siccet cables in particular, with fluoropolymer coatings offer a universal chemical resistance and maximum lifetime guarantee.
