Metal Sheathed Thermocouple Wire

Cerampak Thermocouple Wire

Cerampak - magnesium oxide insulated, metal sheathed thermocouple wire - is used primarily to fabricate thermocouple assemblies. The rugged construction of compacted MgO insulation inside a metal sheathing also makes it useful as an extension wire through harmful environments.

All sheath materials are furnished in a properly annealed condition to allow hand bending in the field.

Cerampak is weldable, flexible - can be bend on a radius two times its diameter - and is moisture resistant when properly sealed.

Material selected from the following Table B will be furnished in a coil with the ends sealed. No wires will be exposed unless requested.

Table A is provided to help in the proper selection to suit your requirements.

Notes:
1. For Premium Grade (Special Limits of Error) material: add "PG to the calibration code. Example: 4KPG60

2. For Duplex (4 wire) material: add prefix "2" to the calibration code. Example: 42K60

3. The most commonly used sizes and materials are listed. Others are available - Specify.

How To Order:

Make a selection from each of the 3 sections of Table B and combine to form a catalog number. Specify catalog number and length required.

For duplex (4 wire), special limits of error, or special material - refer to the notes above.
