Stabilized Thermocouples

In applications were high vibration or exposure to mechanical shock preclude the use of RTD's, the use of thermocouples is common. The drawback has always been that Type K and E thermocouples experience a calibration drift, up to 5°C (9°F), when exposed to a temperature of 538°C (1000°F).Thermo Electric offers a solution with its Stabilized Type K and E thermocouples. This unique product insures that the initial calibration of the thermocouple will be maintained when exposed to high temperature. Used successfully in steam turbine applications this proven solution allows the turbine to function more efficiently saving thousands of dollars in fuel savings as well as maintenance cost.
