In many cases profile thermocouples used in processes below 900 degrees Celsius can be recalibrated and returned back to service with just the test cost. At Vulcan Electric, calibrations are performed in our state of the art comparison systems with direct NIST standards. Calibration reports are available in Modes 2, 4, 6, 7 & 8.
Profile thermocouples used above 900 degrees Celsius are recommended to be recalibrated after six months of continual use, and replaced after one year in operation. Please consult your Vulcan Electric representative for accuracy details.
The Vulcan Replace-on-Demand program allows trade in of used thermocouples for new ones without the need of worrying about scrap credits. This simple program eliminates the variable repair cost of R&R and potential lack of homogeneity due to used wire. Less accounting paperwork and reduced lead times are an added benefit.
At Vulcan we provide comprehensive repair services. Profile thermocouple lifecycles depend on the time and temperatures. During normal cycle times where deterioration due to excessive grain growth or breakage occurs, assemblies can be rebuilt to like-new condition. We provide an estimate in advance of any repair work and, depending on the estimated repair cost, you can decide whether to repair or use our precious metal credit towards a new assembly.
Under Vulcan's Reclamation program, we will reclaim your old, out-of-service, assemblies for the precious metal content, and give you an instant credit with no refining charges. This provides one-stop service, which offsets the price of new profile or spike thermocouple purchase while eliminating disposal cost.
