Tubeskin Thermocouple In Depth

Thermometrics Corporation manufactures temperature sensors, radiant tubeskin thermocouples, petrochemical sensors and gasifer thermocouples for refining facilities around the world. Tube skin refinery thermocouples manufactured with superior metallurgy are used to measure the temperature of process such as Coker, Purge Gas Recovery, Primary Reformer, and Synthesis Converter systems. The size of the sensors are designed for each particular application by an engineer during construction or retrofit of a factory or process. The type of thermocouple sensor used is generally a...

Thermocouple Type K In Depth

TYPE K THERMOCOUPLE (Chromel / Alumel) 200°C to +1260°C / -328°F to +2300°F Chromel {90% nickel and 10% chromium} Alumel {95% nickel, 2% manganese, 2% aluminium and 1% silicon} Thermocouple Type K Type K Reference Chart °F Type K Reference Chart °C This is the most common thermocouple type that provides the widest operating temperature range. Type K thermocouples generally will work in most applications because they are nickel based and have good corrosion resistance. •1.Positive leg is non-magnetic (Yellow), negative leg is magnetic...
