(Type J) and 32 to 1700F (Type K). Prices start at $17.25.
Type J or K thermocouple
adjustable immersion sensors, ideal for plastics processing applications,
feature a 32 to 900â„‰ temperature range and 4, 6, or 10-foot lead wires;
the spring and armor adjustable styles allow for variable immersion depths.
Adjustable immersion sensors start at $16.
Bolt-on ring sensors are
ideal for nozzles, extruder barrels, die heads, molds and other surface-mount
sensing applications. Thermocouple bolt-on ring sensors with a 32 to 900F temperature sensing range start at $15.25; RTD
bolt-on ring sensors with a -58 to 572F
temperature sensing range are available for $54.
RTD probes feature Â¼
inch diameter stainless steel sheaths with 100 ohm platinum three-wire
elements. With a temperature sensing range of -58 to 572â„‰, the probes are available in 6, 12 or 18 inch
lengths. Models available include welded and spring-loaded probes with cast
aluminum NEMA 4 connection head and captive gasket, Â¾ inch NPT conduit opening
and stainless steel cover chain; probes with Â½ x Â½ inch hex nipples are
available in welded and spring-loaded styles, allowing for easy replacement of
existing probes and connection to wiring junction boxes. Also available are probes
with pre-attached three-pin plugs for quick and easy wiring connection, as well
as probes with lead wire transition or M12 connections. RTD probes start at $29.
RTD thermowells are available for use with certain probes, starting at $23.50.
ProSense RTD sanitary
Clean-in-place probes are designed to meet the stringent requirements of HTST
pasteurization systems. These 4-inch probes are available in the standard Â¼
inch diameter or with a 3/16 inch diameter reduced tip for greater durability
in high-viscosity applications. The stainless steel probes have a -58 to 400F temperature sensing range. Clean-in-place probes
start at $89.
extension wire for types J and K, in standard ASTM/ANSI colors, are available
in convenient 50-foot and 100-foot lengths starting at $15. Also available is
RTD extension wire which offers superior performance compared to "off-the-shelf"
cable. Starting at $21, the three-conductor wire is available in 50-foot and
