THE IMPORTANCE OF PROTECTING YOUR THERMOCOUPLES WITH THERMOCOUPLE PROTECTION TUBES

Thermocouples are designed to operate in high temperatures, but extra protection can go a long way in ensuring your applications are successful and cost effective. Metal alloy and ceramic protection tubes protect your thermocouples from threats like damaging gasses, fluids, and pressure, and act as a physical shield in cases of unforeseeable mechanical damage. Specialty thermocouple protection tubes provide even greater defense in extreme environments and problematic specialty applications. Protection tubes extend the service life of your thermocouples, reducing maintenance and replacement costs.…

THERMOCOUPLE INSULATION OPTIONS FOR EXTREME TEMPERATURES

In order to measure extreme temperatures, thermocouples need to withstand extreme temperatures. Thermocouples are designed to be able to operate in high temperatures, but sometimes they need a little extra protection in order to deliver consistently accurate readings. That’s where thermocouple insulators can help. Insulation accessories protect your thermocouples from extreme temperatures and thermal shock so that you won’t have to worry about inaccurate readings that can lead to errors down the road. Here are some options for businesses in need of insulators for their thermocouples.…
