Welcome to Contral Instrument Services


CONTRAL - UK Instrument Distributor since 1983

Contral has been a worldwide distributor of industrial instrumentation for over 30 years, specialising in temperature monitoring, thermal cameras, control and test equipment from a simple thermocouple through to advanced infrared temperature sensors and thermal imaging equipment. Our product range has been carefully selected from the leading manufacturers in their fields as we believe in quality before price.

At Contral we have long been recognised for our wealth of application and product knowledge and we back this up with truly personal technical support. Contral gained wide recognition for designing and manufacturing microprocessor based instrumentation and won a prestigious national “SMART Award” in 1999.

In the area of temperature and process control we have been a distributor for West Instruments for over 32 years. We complemented the range of controller products with the addition of ABB controllers and recorders to satisfy everything from the simple temperature control application to the most demanding of complex process applications. Contral stocks a wide range of temperature sensors, industrial thermocouples, resistance thermometers (PT100’s, RTDs) and specialised temperature sensors for the food industry. A range of competitively priced instruments for the food industry is sourced from British manufacturer E.T.I.

Contral’s Level 1 certified Thermography specialist offers advice on the selection of portable and fixed infrared temperature and thermal camera from Chauvin Arnoux, FLIR, Fluke, Ircon & Raytek.

Contral’s in-house systems and SCADA project team have successfully completed projects within project timescale and budget for such customers as B.P., BNFL and Johnson & Johnson. We are able to provide everything from a simple panel with a temperature controller to advance plc controller based SCADA systems.
