Since 1901 we at SIKA - Dr. Siebert and Kühn have produced precision measuring and control instruments. The original “SIKA” thermometer was developed and brought to production stage by the engineer Hans Siebert. For its basic mechanical design, Dr. Siebert and Kuehn finally received the patent no. 767477 in 1939. From those early days on, we have been manufacturing these thermometers solely in Kassel / Kaufungen – that is real quality “made in Germany”.
Since their invention, SIKA thermometers have been the very embodiment of robustness, reliability and accuracy. They harbour knowledge of many details and the experience of thousands of applications. For this reason, they are now completely indispensable in marine engineering, mechanical and plant engineering, as well as heating and air conditioning technology. Over 15 million reliable temperature monitors have already been produced in Kaufungen.
The advantages of a glass thermometer over other thermometers such as dial thermometers or electronic versions, are obvious: no mechanically moving parts, no material fatigue, no electrical energy requirement, but a high level of accuracy and a very long service life. In other words, as long as a glass thermometer is not mechanically destroyed, it remains accurate
for the duration of its service life.
