Swaged Tip Thermocouples

with die cast alloy head - ATEX /IECEx approved

These semi rigid thermocouples are supplied with an IP68 terminal head and are ideal where a heavy duty connection with cable is to be made near the sensor. They can be used with service temperatures up to 1250ºC (minimum stand-off lengths must be observed).
  • Available in a wide range of protection concepts for Zones 0, 1 & 2 use. See table below for details
  • The process of swaging increases the strength of the sheath by enhancing the grain structure during forming
  • Temperature classification T6-T1, see here for stand-off requirements
  • Available in thermocouple types K, T, J, N, E, R, S and B
  • Sheath diameters from 4.5mm to 8.0mm in a wide choice of materials
  • Insulated measuring junction gives a floating output with high insulation resistance
  • Simplex, duplex and triplex sensors available
  • UKAS calibration available.
