Process Control

Protect your valuable equipment and process media with ultra-reliable Minco sensors. Our temperature sensing solutions are engineered to provide reliability and performance through our advanced designs, proprietary manufacturing technologies and custom development.

Product safety in hazardous environments is critical in today’s world. Minco probes, probe assemblies, miniature bearing sensors, stator winding sensors, thermal ribbons and transmitters carry a wide range of world-wide and country-specific certifications.

Optimizing process yield is critical to increasing capacity and reducing costs, and the right thermal solution can be critical to process yield. Your heating solutions must provide superior edge-to-edge uniformity on your processing surface, deliver a high watt density and get you to your optimum process temperature faster than ever before. That is what Minco delivers:

  • Distribution of watt density to ensure consistent outputs
  • High reliability with over 200,000 hours before failure
  • Superior edge to edge uniformity on your processing surface (± 1°C)
  • High watt density of 100 W/in² (15.5W/cm²)

Application Examples

  • Recent process control solutions from Minco include:
  • Medical equipment - point-of-care blood analyzers, imaging equipment
  • Semiconductor - front end tools and equipment, back end IC chip testing
  • Analytical instrumentation – chromatography, particle detection
