Love Controls manufactures a wide variety of thermocouples, all made to industry standards and stringent ANSI standards, which ensures interchangeability with other standard thermocouples without additional instrument recalibration. Its thermocouple lineup, available from Mod-Tronic Instruments, includes compression fitting type thermocouples, bayonet fitting type thermocouples, metal protection tube type thermocouples and mineral-insulated probes.
Compression fitting type thermocouples have a plain sheath with no permanently attached fittings. They are usually mounted with the use of a compression fitting, which is supplied separately. Tip temperatures can be as high as 480 degrees C (900 degrees F) for fibreglass-insulated wire, or 250 degrees C (500 degrees F) for Teflon-insulated wire.
Bayonet fitting type thermocouples have a sheath with a permanently attached bayonet cap. They connect to the process through a bayonet adapter, which is supplied separately. Tip temperatures can be as high as 480 degrees C (900 degrees F) for fibreglass-insulated wire, or 250 degrees C (500 degrees F) for Teflon-insulated wire.
Metal protection tube type thermocouples are ideal for rugged, high temperature applications exposed to temperatures ranging from 649 to 1149 degrees C (1200 to 2100 degrees F). Various mounting styles are available, including plain, adjustable flange or welded bushing.
Mineral-insulated probes are known for their excellent mechanical durability and resistance to electrical breakdown. The flexible thermocouples can be bent to almost any angle without special equipment, and can be made to extremely long lengths, coiled for inexpensive shipment, and straightened upon arrival without damage. They are available in outside diameters from 0.020 to 0.500 inches (0.5 to 12.7 mm).
Special and sanitary application thermocouples are also available.
Love Controls’ thermocouples can be used in a variety of applications because they can measure wide temperature ranges and are available in many standard configurations.
