Moving Surface Thermocouple (Type 8)

For temperatures up to 250°C and rotating and linear speeds up to 275 metres per minute, Type 8 sensors are suitable for use on calendar rolls, motor shafts and flat sheets of metal, plastic and textile surfaces with low abrasion resistance.

The assemblies are available with a long life, low friction spring loaded detection head incorporating thermocouple conductor types K, T, J, N, or E.
