Platinum and its related noble metals have unique chemical and physical properties making them prized for use in jewellery, medical, electronic and chemical applications. Platinum is also a key component in catalytic converters.

Corrosion-resistant and thermally stable, platinum is obtained commercially as a by-product of the copper production process. Temperature monitoring at the furnace is key to both applications.

Metal processing industries worldwide use AMETEK Land’s advanced, innovative measurement solutions with confidence. During the furnace stage of refining, our integrated thermal imaging system provides the essential information to observe furnace condition and maintain consistent product purity.
