2017 Year Review
11 December 2017 By Robert Godley
We’ve continued to grow throughout the year, allowing the investment in new state of the art equipment as well as expand our team to keep up with demand.
Here’s a run-down of the major points of interest from 2017.
Low Drift Mineral Insulated Thermocouples
Throughout 2017, a joint effort from CCPI Europe, TE Wire & Cable and the University of Cambridge / Cambridge Enterprise program saw the stunning results of the low drift duel wall mineral insulated thermocouple. The low drift thermocouples underwent rigorous testing in the CCPI thermal calibration laboratory and the results below everyone’s minds! The new low drift cables had over 80% drift reduction at 1200℃ and over 90% at 1300℃.

The app was developed to remove the mountains of paperwork and the possibilities of human error during the data entry process, as well as making audits swift and simple.
The app gives instant access to serial numbers, calibration & quality data, product re-orders & quotes as well as certificates and it can all be sent to your work email!
It’s available now on the Google Play Store for Android and The App Store for Apple.
