Thermo Electric

Temperature Sensors for Semiconductor Industry

Thermo Electric Instrumentation specialises in the design, manufacture and supply of spike and profile Thermocouples to both OEM’s (original equipment manufacturers) and end-users.


We manufacture all of our spike and profile thermocouples in our purpose-built clean room, under exactly the same conditions required for the production of wafer steppers.

This facility is dedicated to the manufacturing of our semi-conductor & solar sensors. Not only do we produce sensors in a clean room environment, we also ensure that our materials are clean room compatible.

Our products are also shipped in ‘clean room’ approved packaging materials. These strict manufacturing policies ensure that our temperature sensing devices meet the highest standards for the Semi- conductor & Solar industry.


In addition to our clean room we have an accredited calibration laboratory by RvA. The accreditation is based on an assessment against the requirements as laid down in ISO/ IEC 17025:2005. These unique facilities allow us to calibrate Semi-conductor & Solar temperature sensors from –195 °C up to 1.500 °C.

This quality guarantee and calibration service provides our customers with a reassurance they have come to rely on. This is in part, why Thermo Electric Instrumentation continue to be the number one choice for the supply of high quality semi-conductor & solar sensors.

Our experienced staff are always available to assist you with your sensing requirements. We only select the highest grades of materials based on your applications. Our production procedures and Quality Control System are fully certified by Lloyds Quality Register and our reputation for consistent excellence in Semi-conductor & Solar sensor manufacturing speaks for itself.

The semiconductor & solar industry has advanced at a spectacular rate over the past five years. Thermo Electric has contributed significantly to temperature sensing developments in the diffusion and oxidation processes.

For example, we have developed intelligent solutions such as our profiling sensors and spikes. These developments make extremely compact, multiple applications possible in the wafer stepping process.

We are also extremely proud to have created a number of proprietary features that increases our guarantee for quality, durability and prevention of contamination:

  • Vacuum testing for profile Thermocouples
  • Single ceramic insulation sleeves with channels for 5-fold Thermocouples
  • Lightweight handles – anodised aluminium
  • Simple assembly features
  • Positive and negative t/c wires over the whole length (no common return)
  • Batch calibration – we can also provide a RvA accredited calibration certificate from our own accredited laboratory
