General Purpose Thermocouples

Mineral Insulated Bayonet Thermocouple (Type 11A)

Suitable for plastics machinery and general purpose applications these assemblies are available in thermocouple types K, T, J, N and E with an industry standard one slot adjustable bayonet cap fitting. The fitting can be fine tuned for positioning on site and is suitable where several applications in your plant require individual positioning of the assembly. The sensor is mineral insulated with a diameter of 4.5mm as standard but a 3.0mm option is available and rated to 800°C and can therefore be bent after installation for exact positioning. A choice of leads is available including stainless steel braided cable or flexible stainless steel conduit. As with any mineral insulated thermocouple the junction can be grounded or insulated.
