Revolutionary New Tubeskin Measurement

January 25, 2021

Lawrenceville, GA -- Inaccurate temperature measurements can cost the process industry significant time and money. WIKA’s engineers have the solution.

WIKA engineers have designed a revolutionary system that more accurately measures furnace tubeskin temperature. Backed by rigorous testing at the WIKA R&D Center in Houston,Texas, the new TEFRACTO-PAD® (TC59-T) will allow users to meet production targets while protecting theirfurnace and maintaining tube integrity.The TEFRACTO?PAD® model TC59-T is the first new product developed using the real-world testing conditions provided by WIKA Houston’s R&D Center.

The product provides proven accuracy and ease of installation because our engineers took into account customer applications, needs, and requirements throughout the development process. A proprietary moldable shield is placed over the weld-pad and sheathed cable. This shield and insulation is a key component of the TEFRACTO-PAD®, providing accurate temperature monitoring that is backed with research and testing from our state-of-the art R&D center.

The TEFRACTO-PAD® is designed as two primary components (shield and pad) that have been combined to provide a simple one-step installation process. With a major reduction in installation time and proven accuracy over a range of process conditions, this product is designed to be the engineered solution for your furnace application.
