Thyracont was awarded to the circle of “authorized economic operators” with the highest award “AEO-F” as one of 30 medium-sized companies in Lower Bavaria (1). In combination with the award of “Authorized Exporter” this means a faster handling in customs matters, as well as shorter lead times in international trade guarantees, benefiting all our international […]
The new Smartline series of vacuum transmitters by Thyracont Vacuum Instruments will be presented at the Hannover Messe 2013. The new devices, which measure from atmospheric pressure to ultra high vacuum, come in a new, sleek design with loads of new options. Through further optimization of the Smartline series, the transmitters offer short response time combined with high resolution and excellent stability.
Patent 10 2005 008 959 “Drucksensoren und Kombinations-Drucksensoren und deren Verwendung” (pressure sensors and combination pressure sensors and their application) was granted. With this patent sensors for pressure and vacuum which basically consist of two diaphragms, which move toward another and are separated through a fitted frame structure were protected for Thyracont.
The word “rating” nowadays has the potential to raise one’s hackles – this is not the case for Thyracont Vacuum Instruments GmbH. Thyracont reached the highest category possible for an SME according to BASEL II, rated by its principal bank. A credit rating of “Very good“ – equivalent to “A+“ (Standard & Poor’s) and “A1“ (Moody’s) equals an increase of 3 levels, compared to the last rating in 2007 (“1A-“, DSGV Standards). All main categories were passed with a straight A, the best value possible (1.0).
Vacuum measurement in processes containing corrosive gases, oil vapor or particulates is often attempted with Pirani or convection-driven Pirani sensors. While such sensors exhibit reasonable accuracy, they will often fail due to process contaminants and require frequent replacement. Piezo-resistive sensors, while less sensitive to process contamination, lack the needed measurement accuracy.
