Type K Thermocouples, Stainless Steel and Inconel / Industrial Mineral Insulated

Type K Thermocouples is a device which measures temperatures, it’s made up from two wires which are different materials. When these two wires are joined together, they create an electrical junction. Once the temperature changes at this junction, it created a voltage which can then be interpreted and read as a temperature. This is commonly known as the “Seebeck Effect”.

Features & Benefits

• The highly flexible sheath can be best/formed to suit many different applications and processes.
• Features an insulated hot junction

Types of Thermocouples

•Type K Thermocouples: Type K is one of the most common types of thermocouple. They’re popular due to their low cost, the Type K are accurate, provide reliability and have a wide temperature range. • Type J Thermocouples: Type J is also very common and widely known for their low cost, good performance and reliability. Can hold its own in higher temperature ranges, but this can shorten its lifespan
• Type T Thermocouples: Type T offers stability and consistency, you can typically expect to use type T in exceptionally low temperature situations - such as freezing.
• Type N Thermocouples: Type N shares similar accuracy and temperature limits as Type K. Type N is slightly higher in their price range.
• Type L Thermocouples: Type L specialise in measurements of liquids such as liquid metals. They’re commonly used in heating and apparatus engineering. This type of thermocouple is also cost effective, efficient and reliable.

What are type K thermocouple sensors?

Type K sensors, which typically have a temperature range from -200 to +1260°C, are known to be commonly used in a variety of industries and sectors. Type K sensors are also very accurate and reliable across wide ranges of operating temperatures.
