Right Angle Thermocouples

 

Single Metal Protection Tube | 90° Bend | SH Head

Right angle industial thermocouples with single metal protection tubes are typically used to monitor temperatures in heat treating salt baths, casting, or hot dip galvanizing kettles. These large heavy duty thermocouples are constructed with a single metal protection tube and a 90° bend connecting the hot and cold legs of the assembly. This right angle construction allows the thermocouple connection head to be away from the radiated heat of process material and avoids contact with any covers which may be used to cover the process material.

Specifications | Advantages

  • Single Metal Protection Tube Hot Leg
  • Right Angle Construction
  • Standard Aluminum Screw Cover Head
