High temperature thermocouples!

Model TC80 series thermocouples from WIKA, were developed to measure extremely high temperatures. These high-temperature thermocouples comply with DIN EN 50 446 for temperature ranges up to 1,600 degree C.

A thermowell made from high-temperature alloy metal or high temperature ceramic, with or without an additional inner tube, protects the thermocouple from the process medium as well as mechanical and chemical damage. A wide selection of process connections, e.g. stop flanges, threaded collars and solid welded flanges, permit direct mounting to the process. For particularly critical applications there are designs with inert gas or compressed air purging or with pressure tight sealing.

For the more demanding applications, WIKA offer a ceramic material called Hexoloy that offers a high temperature strength, excellent thermal shock resistance, universal corrosion resistance with a high thermal conductivity equal to that of stainless steel and 5 times alumina and with exceptional wear resistance, 50% harder than tungsten carbide.

• WIKA products are marketed in Ireland by Instrument Technology.
