AMETEK Process Instruments product brands are synonymous with unrivaled reliability and premium quality.
Roots trace back to 1962 when the Model 400 Photometric Analyzer was first sold commercially as part of custom-designed solutions for the chemical and petrochemical industries. In 1967, Thermox pioneered the use of zirconium oxide for combustion oxygen measurement. Thermox was once again on the leading edge of combustion control in 1979 when it introduced combined oxygen and combustibles measurement in one overall combustion analyzer.
