Designed to survive in extreme environments and effectively measure temperatures in excess of 3,092°F (1,700°C), thermocouples are manufactured from platinum wire and are available in Type R, S and B calibrations. Construction includes high purity, alumina bead spaces instead of mullite, preventing contamination of the platinum by the mullite that can occur at temperatures above 1,200°F (650°C). The sensor is protected from the environment by an alumina protection tube, available in a variety of lengths, diameters and process connections.
