The TEI type-approval for :
The approval is also valid for AUT-UMS, AUT-CCS, AUT-PORT and AUT-IMS meaning :
- UMS- Unattended Machinery Spaces
- CCS – Centralized Control Station
- PORT – Automated Operation in Port
- IMS – Integrated Machinery Spaces
Along with these temperature sensors which are manufactured in Waddinxveen, we also offer other sensors with Marine-approvals such as pressure sensors made by Gems and Besta level switches.
Recently Thermo Electric Instrumentation has expanded their vast range of certificates with the MID (European Measuring Instrument Directive) approval.
The goal is to set standards regarding measurement precision for the accurate billing of quantities of liquid or gas. At first glance flow, level, mass and volume seem to be the only parameters that play a role. If you realize however that all these liquids and gases that are being pumped around, stored and payed for, expand when they get hotter, and shrink when they get colder, you understand the extra liters or gallons you gain or lose from a few milligrades of temperature difference, count for quite a sum over the years.
Another application is the measurement of heat flow itself. In this case temperature difference between two or more sensors is used to calculate the amount of energy transferred. This applies for both heating and cooling equipment.
Thermo Electric Instrumentation has been manufacturing instruments for this purpose based on their ISO17025 approval. However, many of our customers manufacture flowmeters or metering equipment and need to comply with this MID.
As part of the approval procedure, our RTD-sensors were calibrated and witnessed in our own in-house laboratory at different temperatures, ranging from -196 °C to 550 °C, using liquid nitrogen, melting ice and liquid salt baths. Another part of the procedure was about the electrical immunity of our designs.
The main groups of our customers Thermo Electric Instrumentation intends to serve with this feature, are the main transmitter manufacturers or dcs-system suppliers and the manufacturers of flow metering equipment.

Thermo Electric Instrumentation will attend ADIPEC 2016 (07-10 November) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates; the world’s most influential international exhibition and conference for the Oil & Gas market. You can visit us at the IRO Dutch Pavilion, Hall 11, booth number 11230.
Thermo Electric Instrumentation strengthens its focus on furnace and boiler industry, revolutionary design meets customer design and performance criteria
In the field of tube skin or boiler temperature sensors Thermo Electric Instrumentation has much to offer. The way Thermo Electric Instrumentation knows how to combine knowledge, portfolio, research, welding and project management is a key factor to the success.
First and foremost Thermo Electric Instrumentation is able and willing to take a closer look into the exact needs and expectations of the end user. The extensive feedback and investigations have resulted in a number of special features with a proven track record.
Being able to avoid bending during elongation of the boiler tubes has provided us with the possibility to come up with an extremely resistant construction, with ceramic plasma coatings. This very same development gave us the opportunity to develop a truly online retractable skin thermocouple. Both have been tested and investigated thoroughly. After years of service, the online retractable skin thermocouple proved easy and useful. The resistance to the harsh combustion environments has been investigated through a number of destructive and non-destructive tests, and the mere fact that they have outlived their predecessors by far proves this.
When to use a shield, the location of the thermocouple within the shield and the dimensioning, positioning and welding are, as expected, of key importance to the reduced influence of the irradiation by the burners and heat flow from the gasses.
Nevertheless, the more classic and standard designs with expansion coils and regular weld pads or offline retractable designs show an ever increasing demand, especially when combined with the more resistant alloys and our project support during the exciting period of a shut down or revamp.
The revolutionary new “non-welding” design has been in service for over a year now. Measurement output is much closer to reality, due to an improved contact between tube and thermocouple sheath. Expect us to keep you informed over the years to come.

‘Proflexi’ Multi-Thermocouples assemblies installed and commissioned in brand new Diesel Desulfurizer Unit
Diesel desulfurizer unit
In succession Thermo Electric Instrumentation (the Netherlands) manufactured, installed and commissioned their ‘Proflexi’ Multi-Thermocouples assemblies. This time Thermo Electric Instrumentation was selected to execute the job for a a brand new Diesel Desulfurizer Unit to achieve modern Euro-norms. For this project, 4-fold and 12-fold ‘Proflexi’ Multi-Thermocouples assemblies are routed, fixed and supported inside the reactor to measure at several points on a plane just below or above the tower internals. The project has been supervised by qualified and experienced Thermo Electric Instrumentation staff.
The combination of Thermo Electric Instrumentation’s turn-key management; to do the complete engineering manufacturing, installation and commissioning by one company was one of the key benefits and reasons why Thermo Electric Instrumentation was selected and successfully executed this project. For more information or inquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Strengthened Management Team Goes Full Throttle For Growth
Thermo Electric who specialise in designing and manufacturing temperature sensors and instrumentation, became independent from parent company DGI in 2013.
Thermo Electric is proud to announce having obtained the Russian EAC TR CU certificate.
This TR Certificate is an EX-proof certificate for equipment installed in hazardous areas for the Custom Union Technical Regulations TR TU 012/2011.
A valid TR CU certificate is required to allow installation and use of equipment in the Customs Union of Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus. The TR CU certificate replaces the former Gost R- and Gost -K certificate.
With this accomplishment Thermo Electric shows continuous improvement of its performances.
