Thermocouples offer longer life in harsh process environments

15 February 2010

A thermocouple has been launched that offers high performance and longer life in harsh process environments, providing superior resistance to temperature, vibration, impact, corrosion and abrasion.

The Aeropak Great from Okazaki Manufacturing Company (OMC) is a thick wall mineral insulated (MI) thermocouple cable, which is ideally suited to harsh, high temperature process environments. Thermocouples can also be supplied with a hard coating, which offer superior resistance in other harsh high temperature applications.

The gap between the element and the thick wall sheath is densely filled with high purity magnesium oxide (MgO), which prevents any residual air from penetrating the sheath. This enables faster response times compared to conventional standard thermocouples.

Aeropak Great offers long life even under harsh operating conditions, and is available in long cable lengths of up to 10 metres. Thermocouples can be supplied in large diameters with a very thick wall sheath (up to 22mm outside diameter), providing a high resistance to vibration and impact shocks.
