sensing critical situations

Your operations and equipment are kept safe and stable with our precision and quality instruments.

If you look for a high accuracy in monitoring pressure and temperature, then choose our precision sensors. Made from high quality components on our own factories in Denmark and China and designed to withstand tear and wear from both the process it is measuring and the ambient environment it is exposed to.

Our product range includes standard products in our stock or specially designed products according to customer specifications and demand.

Tempress is located just outside Aarhus, Denmark and fully owned by ACT. For more than 60 years we have manufactured instruments for process and heavy duty industries worldwide. We have our own R&D (Research & Development) staff and skilled employees developing our instruments to work and last in all kinds of environments – from the toughest chemical plants to the highest purities in pharmaceutical manufacturing.

Our History

Tempress A/S began the production of pressure gauges and thermometers in 1949 under a Danish company name, which was changed into Tempress in 1956. In the beginning, the production was in the center of Aarhus until we moved to larger facilities outside the city in 1960.

During all these years, Tempress has produced mechanical pressure and temperature instruments for many purposes. More and more electronics are incorporated in our product range allowing us to meet all kinds of demands including software coding of product solutions for technologies and systems of the future.

Our instruments are quality wise state-of-the-art and therefore sold to many leading manufacturers in different industries worldwide.  Out of some 100,000 instruments produced each year more than 80% are exported. Mainly to the EU countries, but also to many overseas markets, in total to some 30 countries globally.

Our owners were Danish companies until 2012, where our long-term partner and distributor ACT took over the full ownership. Since then, we developed mutual business values and a highly efficient supply chain across the world.

In 2018 Tempress moved to the present headquarter just south of Aarhus allowing us to further improve internal and external logistics and strengthen our business efficiency.

We are looking forward to being an attractive business partner for many years ahead.

Welcome to our world – worth measuring.
