AGC Instruments manufactures all its own Hot-Wire Filaments.
A choice of materials is available depending on the application in question.
The choice includes:
- Gold-Sheathed Tungsten (AuW)
- Tungsten (W)
- Rhenium-tungsten (WX)
- Nickel (Ni)
- Nickel alloy
Each type has specific characteristics such as corrosion resistance,
oxidation resistance, catalytic reactions and sensitivity for use which
are dependent on the application required.
Hot-Wire Filaments required for corrosive applications are best
suited to be manufactured in Gold-sheathed tungsten, with special
resistance to Oxygen.
The Filaments are sold as matched pairs with standard 50mm (2”) leads or at lengths more suited to the customer’s requirement.
