Temperature Sensors

Thermocouple Types and Applications 

These Thermocouples have been designed for use in oxidizing, neutral and reducing environments. The materials used are of the highest quality, purities and manufacturing standards. Applications in all type of furnaces can be measured with these types of sensors. Temperature ranges to +4200oF are available. All standard refractory metal and noble metal thermocouple alloys are available. (C, D/F, G, R, S and B)

High Temperature Thermocouples are defined as sensors used at temperatures of 2000°F and beyond. These Sensors are generally made from refractory/noble metals and refractory ceramics. Temperatures up to 5000°F can be obtained by using special design techniques and materials that have extended EMF tables. Applications can vary from extremely high-temperature furnaces to rocket engines and munitions.

For any applications regarding the above temperature sensors that are not profiled in the overall reference sections, please consult CONVECTRONICS’ Engineers for application, design or technical information on your current or future requirements.
