Mineral insulated thermocouples cover temperature ranges between -40Â°C and 1250Â°C (-50Â°C to 1350Â°C for short durations in some cases) with good accuracy and stability throughout their life span. The main advantages are:- stability, durability, cost-effectiveness, quick response, ability to be formed into almost any position, they can be used in almost every industry, and can be tailored to your individual application.
Mineral insulated thermocouples consist of an outer metal sheath, housing thermocouple conductors which are embedded in a highly compacted magnesium oxide powder. This construction allows the sheaths to be bent or formed to shape as required by the user, but remain rigid during in use. The whole assembly is hermetically sealed giving the conductors full protection from the operating environment.
Available from TMS in types K, J & N with standard diameters ranging from 1.5mm to 8mm.
