In line with the legislative proposal (7.4.2023) of the European Parliament and its right to repair, ELPRO LEPENIK informs that we have been integrating this sustainability aspect into our production and sales programme from the very beginning - all our products are repairable.
On 7. 4. 2023 to adopt the requirements of the legislative proposal on the right to repair. They advocated appropriate design of long-lasting products, labelling to better inform consumers and the extension of warranty rights.
ELPRO LEPENIK temperature sensors are our product range of high quality and reliable temperature measurement products with integrated RTD and TC temperature sensors. Only these show the temperature change as a resistance or thermovoltage. They are connected to meters, i.e. to displays/control/automation/monitoring, which show the measured value as temperature. Standardised temperature sensors are designed to measure temperature in industrial processes.
The technical speciality of ELPRO temperature sensors is their design and concept, to which we pay great attention from the moment of agreement with the customer. This results in stable measurements for as long as possible, easier replacement (e.g. of the sensor and other components) and minimal downtime for the user. This is our main competitive advantage.
From ON SITE measurement and monitoring (on-site calibration), to quick exchanges of measuring inserts or sensor parts, to efficient and economical repairs of special designs and complex structures. We use systems and materials in our construction and design that increase the life and protection of our products. For trouble-free operation, with minimum maintenance and repairs. These steps ensure that our products are repairable, preserving the bulk of the expensive parts, which are often specially made (turned, milled) for the user. This conserves materials, labour, time, development, energy, right down to the raw material. What we can no longer use, we recycle. As members of the CIRCI project, we are looking for ways to reuse parts that would otherwise end up in recycling.
In addition to the advantages already mentioned, we also offer flexible design (made-to-measure). This has a positive impact on the energy efficiency or the efficiency of the tempering process. Our range of temperature sensors covers temperatures from -200 to +1800 °C, providing tailored solutions for a very wide range of users.
As the leading manufacturer of temperature sensors in Slovenia and self-proclaimed biggest fans of temperature measurement, we want to influence the positive effects of measurement, control and calibration. We don’t care where worn or faulty sensors end up (even if they are not made by us). We want to refurbish, repair, recycle or reuse the materials they contain. Today, sensors are the driving force behind digitisation. The sensor is where it all starts, and the number of measurements has increased dramatically. As a result, the demand and need for temperature sensors has increased significantly. And because they are not eternal – and have their own expected lifetime of stability and efficiency – suddenly there is a much bigger “rubbish heap” than we might be used to.
All our sensors are repairable, so we make it easy for customers to repair their sensor if it fails. The most commonly repaired sensors are the TTU-GLA, HIGH TEMP and PORTABLE sensors, as they are the most frequently used and subjected to the highest loads. However, we are also available for repairs of other sensors and will do our best to get your sensor back in service as soon as possible so that you can resume smooth production.
ELPRO LEPENIK temperature sensors are sustainably designed with the aim of reducing negative environmental impacts. We are deeply aware of the importance of sustainable development and we strive to implement all aspects of it in our processes. This results in waste reduction, recycling, reuse, remanufacturing and repair – and other aspects that help us extend the life of our products. The company has also adopted commitment to sustainability and is committed to sustainable development, energy efficiency and social responsibility. We declare that we will do everything in our power to work towards reparability, reuse, secondary use and recycling.
