Single Metal Protection Tube | 90° Bend | SH Head
Right angle thermocouples utilize metal protection tubes. They are used to monitor temperatures for heat treating, salt baths, casting, or hot dip galvanizing. They also have and a unique 90° bend. Angle thermocouples have a single metal protection tube. A variety of high temperature alloys can be used for the tube. An elbow also connects the hot and cold legs of the assembly. This right angle construction is very useful. It keeps the thermocouple connection head away from radiated heat from the process. Angle thermocouples also help avoid contact with covers above the process.
