We manufacture thermocouples for General Application purposes. Our cartridge heater are used primarily from the Plastics Industry. Thermocouples are sensors, or temperature measuring devices, are definitely the most frequently convenient and versatile tool for measuring temperature. Thermocouples function to convert units of heat into useable engineering units that act as input signals for process controllers and recorders. Thermocouples are suitable for use in temperature ranges from (-200 to 2316) °C [-328 to 4200] °F.

Thermocouple construction may be the pairing of two dissimilar Thermocouple Diagramedmetals or alloys (commonly available as wire) that happen to be welded together at one end to produce the thermocouple Junction. This is the heating or cooling of these two metals that develop a voltage that may be correlated returning to the temperature. More basically, thermocouples are the building of wires and sheath (tubing) components. Our industry standard Thermocouples (J,K, E, T) have Tube and Wire construction, although some variations might include MgO insulation. See our Thermocouple Options

Thermocouple Applications:

Food processing equipment; de-icing; Plating baths; Medical equipment; Industrial processing; Pipe tracing control; Packaging equipment; Industrial heat treating; Refrigeration temperature control; Oven temperature control; and Liquid temperature measurement.

Capabilities:

The the heaters band can withstand temperatures approximately 900?F (480?C) for continuous operation.

Calibrations:

Type E:

This calibration is most effective for temperatures up to 1650?F (900 ?C) inside a vacuum, inert, mild oxidizing or reducing atmosphere. The thermocouple should outlive other types – when not exposed to corrosion, so when it provides the best EMF output per degree of other standardly used thermocouples.

Type J:

This design is the second most common of your calibration types. This is the suitable selection for general purposes where moisture will not be within its surrounding atmosphere.

Type K:

These thermocouple temperature sensor are the most prevalent calibration for supplying the widest operating range. They function well in the majority of applications as they are primarily nickel based – aiding in corrosion resistance. This thermocouple can be used applications as much as 2300?F (1260 ?C).

Type T:

This particular type proves superior performance for the compatibility in numerous applications in low and cryogenic temperatures. And it is the best option for oxidizing or reducing atmospheres. The applying usheatc6605 a protection tube is usually recommended to extend the lifestyle in the thermocouple. The recommended operating range for this type is -330? to 660?F (-200? to 350?C) you can use it around -452?F (-269?C).

Tolerances:

The flexible wire is insulated, and woven with fiberglass or high temperature resins. Stainless wire braid and flexible armor or common sheathing (tubing) are requested abrasion protection in the inner sensing junction. Common mounting alternatives are: springs, ring terminals, specialty bolts, and pipe style clamps and shims.

Resistance:

Resistance can’t confirm the alloy meets correct thermoelectric specifications, nevertheless it will look for additional unfavorable characteristics including: opens, poor welds, or wire corrosion. Therefore, be sure to measure resistance away from application to guarantee EMF output won’t conflict together with the resistance meter.
