Rheintacho UK Ltd. – Hazardex 2017 Exhibitor Profile - Stand 34

17 November 2016

RHEINTACHO Messtechnik GmbH located in Freiburg, Germany and RHEINTACHO UK Ltd., formerly known as Foundrometers Instrumentation Ltd, are both companies with longstanding traditions. They have been engaged for over a combined 200 years in the field of rotational speed, a crucial control quantity for mechanical processes. 

Just over 70 employees are employed at the company’s headquarters in Freiburg and 10 are employed in Leeds, England. In-house product development, production and assembly departments guarantee quick and innovative solutions to customers’ individual requirements.

The production range incorporates a wide range of solutions of high technical quality, principally in the field of rotational speed: sensors, hand-held measuring devices and instruments, rotary encoders, stroboscopes and switching devices. 

RHEINTACHO UK Ltd., which is a subsidiary of the German company RHEINTACHO Messtechnik GmbH, is specialized in the production of non-electronic measurement and indication instruments, ATEX certified products, tacho-generators and acts as a sales and service centre for the UK and Ireland with customers all over the world.

At RHEINTACHO’S facility in Micklefield, Leeds, all products are manufactured, assembled, tested and calibrated according to ISO 9001:2015. RHEINTACHO UK is also the specialist in connection with spares and repairs of not only current products in its comprehensive portfolio, but also any instruments or devices which RHEINTACHO, Foundrometers or even products of an earlier acquisition of Hardings and any other brand no longer around.

RHEINTACHO UK is also the company in the RHEINTACHO Group which is responsible for ATEX products. Two years ago, the first product, a handheld mechanical tachometer (HTM) was Zone 2 approved for use in hazardous areas. One year ago, we upgraded the approval to Zone 1, so that it can be used in mining environments.

RHEINTACHO’s ATEX product portfolio took a further step in the second half of 2016 when a stationary stroboscope solution was introduced. The strobe was put into a zone 2 enclosure enabling usage in hazardous environments. A typical application can be found in the printing industry. Due to a company philosophy of continuous improvement and development, further ATEX developments are now in the pipeline with two different portable stroboscope families being reengineered to fulfill Zone 2 application safety requirements and will most likely be available in 2017. 

In case of any inquiries, please contact us. We would love to make your application safe!
