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.
