Hand Held Thermocouple Probes (Type 5)

General Purpose Thermocouples

Typical Hand Held Thermocouple Probe
We offer a wide range of hand held thermocouple probes to suit a variety of applications. Depending on the thermocouple type, these probes can be supplied with a 1, 2, 5 or 10 metre (extended) coiled lead and a miniature flat pin plug which makes them suitable for all our hand held indicators as well as most other brands of indicators. They can also be connected to other instrumentation by using extension cable and the appropriate connectors.

Style Description Tip Image
AA 

General Purpose Thermocouple Probe

Mineral insulated thermocouple with a stainless steel sheath. Insulated hot junction. The tip and sheath may be operated up to 800°C and the sheath may be bent. Can be made to any length and in a choice of 3.0, 4.5 and 6.0mm diameters.
General Purpose Thermocouple Probe Tip
BB 

Spring Loaded Surface Probe

This sensor has a ribbon style butt welded sensing tip which allows a fast response when placed upon a solid surface.
The tip is rated to 400°C and the handle to 135°C.
Sheath: 6.35mm dia x 165mm long (from handle to tip)
Spring Loaded Surface Probe Tip
CC 

Heavy Duty Spring Loaded Surface Probe

A robust version of style 5BB with a larger butt welded ribbon junction. Whilst stronger, the response time is slightly slower; however, in most applications it is perfectly acceptable. The tip is rated to 400°C and the handle to 135°C.
Heavy Duty Spring Loaded Surface Probe Tip
DD 

Spring Loaded Surface Probe with 90º Bend

As style 5BB, but the sensing tip is positioned at a right angle for difficult to reach applications. The tip is rated to 400°C and the handle to 135°C. Sheath: 6.35mm dia x 195mm long (140mm to start of bend).
Spring Loaded Surface Probe with 90º Bend
EE 

Heavy Duty Spring Loaded Surface Probe with 90º Bend

A robust version of style 5CC with a larger butt welded ribbon junction. Whilst stronger, the response time is slightly slower; however, in most applications it is perfectly acceptable. The tip is rated to 400°C and the handle to 135°C.
Heavy Duty Spring Loaded Surface Probe with 90º Bend
FF 

Fast Response Air/Gas Probe

This style is ideal for measuring air or gas flows as it has a perforated sheath to allow for fast sensing. The stem is rated to 800°C and the handle to 135°C. Sheath: 4.85mm dia x 155mm long (from handle to tip).
Heavy Duty Spring Loaded Surface Probe with 90º Bend
FF 

Needle Penetration Probe

This sensor can be used for penetrating semi solid materials (food, plastics, rubber etc.) as it has a sharp sensing tip. The stem is rated to 800°C and the handle to 135°C. Can be made in either a 2.0mm or 5.0mm diameter, up to 90mm or 290mm in length respectively.
Needle Penetration Sensor
HH 

Heavy Duty Needle Penetration Probe

All stainless steel construction, this sensor is similar to the standard Needle Penetration Sensor, however due to the 90° angle cable exit, the sensor can be hammered into hard surfaces such as frozen food. Can be made to any length up to 150mm, 6.35mm diameter.
