Type T Thermocouple

Type T Color Code

Temperature Range
-454 to 700F(-270 to 370C)

Accuracy
Standard Limits: ± 2.2°C or ± 0.75% Tol.
Special Limits: ± 1.1°C or ± 0.4% Tol.

Suitable in oxidizing, reducing, or inert atmospheres as well as vaccuum. Moisture resistant and very stable. This type is best suited for low temperature service. Because of its stability at lower temperatures, this is a superior thermocouple for a wide variety of applications in low and cryogenic

Temperature Range
–454 to 2,300F (–270 to 1260C)

Accuracy
Standard Limits: ± 2.2°C or ± 0.75% Tol.
Special Limits: ± 1.1°C or ± 0.4% Tol.

Type N thermocouples are suitable for use in oxidising atmospheres, in inert gas atmospheres or dry reduction atmospheres. They are very accurate at high temperatures. The source voltage(EMF) and the temperature range are almost the same as with type K.
