Thermocouple Sensors

Industrial thermocouples are provided in a variety of styles and materials to meet rugged industrial applications. A wide selection of sensor types, connection heads, leadwire termination options and accessories are available.


MGO - Thermocouples

Industrial MGO insulated thermocouples are equipped with heavy duty features such as metal jacketed lead wire and metal connection heads. Their rugged design enables them to be used in harsh environments and continuous processes. MGO Thermocouples are integral components of all thermal systems. A wide selection of sensors, connection heads, lead wire termination options and accessories are available from stock or can be quickly manufactured to customer specifications.

TCW - Thermocouples Wire

Use of twisted-shielded Copper RTD extension wire provides interference free application. The shield should be grounded at one end only. (Preferably the controller end)


ADS - Adjustable Depth Sensors

This style of thermocouple is commonly used on plastic extruders and injection molding machines. They are also used on presses such as those used in the rubber industry. The hollow tube thermocouple typically has a spring loaded bayonet cap. When properly installed, the sensing tip presses against the bottom of the probe area for accurate temperature readings. Since the depth is adjustable, fewer thermocouples have to be kept as spares when compared to fixed depth thermocouples. A wide selection of sensors, lead wire termination options and accessories is available from stock or can quickly be manufactured to customer specifications.Since the thermocouple depth is adjustable, it isn't necessary to stock multiple sizes, therefore reducing inventory and costs.

C700 - Special Purpose Thermocouples Sensor

The Sensors shown on this page represent some models designed for specific applications. They include a 6" by 1/8" diameter J thermocouple with 10' Fiberglass® leads, and a type K thermocouple with identical physical characteristics.

JP, KP & TP - Plastic Industry Thermocouples

This style of thermocouple is commonly used on plastic extruders and injection molding machines. They are also commonly used on presses such as those used in the rubber industry.  The hollow tube thermocouple typically has a spring loaded bayonet cap. When properly installed, the spring enables sensing tip to press against the bottom of the probe area for accurate temperature readings. A wide selection of sensors, lead wire termination options and accessories is available from stock or can quickly be manufactured to customer specifications.

NTT - Nozzle Type Thermocouples

Threaded nozzle thermocouples measure the temperature of the nozzle when placed in a threaded, shallow drill-hole on an injection nozzle. This type of TC does not directly contact the material flow. They are ideal in applications for nozzles with minimal wall thickness between the inside bore and hex flat. Threaded nozzle TCs are equipped with either a threaded, rotatable swivel bolt, or a fixed bolt which turns independently of the extension leads for easy installation. A wide selection of sensors, lead wire termination options and accessories is available from stock or can quickly be manufactured to customer specifications.

RTT - Ring Type Thermocouples

These ring type assemblies have the thermocouples embedded into a nickel-plated, stainless steel terminal for grounded junctions. Ring type thermocouples measure the surface temperature of nozzles, extruder barrels, die heads, molds, and many other similar surfaces. A wide selection of sensors, lead wire termination options and accessories is available from stock or can quickly be manufactured to customer specifications.
