Industrial Sensors, Wire & Protection Tubes

Industrial Sensors Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTD’s) & Thermistors

Valax manufactures a complete line of resistance temperature sensors. Platinum resistance elements are specially designed to ensure precise and repeatable temperature measurement. Valax’s RTDs and thermistors are accurate, sensitive, standardized and interchangeable industrial sensors.


Thermocouples are a widely used type of temperature sensor for measurement and control and can also be used to convert heat into electric power. Thermocouples are inexpensive and interchangeable, are supplied fitted with standard connectors, and can measure a wide range of temperatures. We will have the right industrial sensors for your equipment.

Type J, K, E, T, N, S, R, B and W., Valax manufacturers a wide selection of general application, mineral insulated metal sheathed, base metal, high temperature, surface temperature and multipoint thermocouples are available. Fiberglass insulated thermocouples are capable of temperatures up to 900°F (480°C) for continuous operation.

High temperature wire

Valax stocks a selection of premium, standard and extension grade wire. Available insulation’s are PVC, Nylon, Teflon, Kapton, Fiberglass, Ceramic fiber and Ceramic. Insulation temperatures range from 1050C to 1425C.


Thermowells act as a barrier between a process medium and the sensing element of a temperature measuring device. It protects against corrosive process media, as well as media contained under pressure or flowing at a high velocity. A thermowell also allows the sensing element to be removed from the application while maintaining a closed system.

Valax carries a variety of thermowells, Tapered, Step-down, Straight, Van Stone and Flanged Wells.  We have a full range of metals available to suit your application needs.

Protection Tubes

Protection tubes are designed for use in high temperature corrosive service applications, medium to high temperature low corrosion industrial process heating applications.

Protection tubes are used in waste incineration, cement and lime kilns, utility and recovery boilers, fluidized bed combustion systems, and other harsh process environments when high levels of sulphur, chlorides, ash, and salt deposits are commonly found. Protection tubes are also excellent choices for use in waste incineration, immersion into molten copper, brass, basic steels and slag, and for use in open hearth furnaces, soaking pits, and blast furnace applications.

Valax sales team will help determine which protection tube is right for your application.
