Molten Metal Thermocouple Tips

 

Thermocouple Tips | Handles | Grips | Armored Leads

Molten metal thermocouple tips are used for reading melt temperatures of non-ferrous metals such as Aluminum, Brass, Bronze (except Phosphor Bronze) and Magnesium. These disposable tips are constructed from 446 series stainless steel and have a maximum temperature rating of 2300°F (1260°C). The thermocouple tips are Type K calibration and within standard limits of error (Special limits can be special ordered). The reduced diameter thermocouple tip allows for a quick response time for melt temperatures. When the thermocouple tip is immersed into the melt, response times can be a fast as about 25 seconds.

Molten metal thermocouple tips are installed in a MM43 handle which we manufacture from 304 series stainless steel for long life in the foundry. The MM43 handle is used with all molten metal thermocouple tips from 8" to 48" in length.
