Piezocryst, an Austrian manufacturer of high precision piezoelectric sensors and have appointed Strainsense limited as the exclusive distributor for the UK & Ireland.
Piezocryst are a sister company to AVL based in Graz, developing sensor technologies aimed, but not limited to Ballistics, In-cylinder pressure on combustion engines, Aero and Power Turbines and Industrial process control, all used for accurate measurements under conditions of extreme pressure and temperatures.
Piezocryst is one of the few companies worldwide that grow their own gallium phosphate (GaPO4) which is then processed into a high precision product. GaPO4 is probably the most suitable material for high performance piezoelectric pressure sensors, especially at high temperature.
In-house sub-micrometer tolerance machining in exotic materials and nickel-based alloys for their own products has led to growth in demand to offer sub contract services. Incredibly small and complex components can be manufactured all of which are 100% inspected and controlled.
All products are available with amplifiers, cable assemblies, insertion/extraction tools and fitting pastes.
