Thermowell

Thermowell

We stock robust thermowells featuring thick walls and sturdy construction. They withstand the effects of high pressure processing and high velocity flows. Thermowells are protective receptacles that shield temperature measuring devices, such as thermocouples and RTDs, from the negative effects that may occur through process immersion and exposure. They encase the sensing element, allowing it to be inserted into a vessel or pipe. The sensor in a thermowell continues to maintain sensitivity and functionality. Our industrial thermowells from leading manufacturers are produced from drilled out bar stock. The tubes create a pressure-tight connection at the point of installation. The receptacle may be categorized based on its type of process connection, as in a flanged or threaded thermocouple. A thermowell delivers a smart solution to making a sensor compatible with a variety of industrial/commercial conditions, when it otherwise would not have compatibility. The metal thermowells support high thermal conductivity and rapid readings. We stock the most popular thermowell designs and can also assist with custom-made products. Also consider our ceramic thermocouple tubes that are resistant to corrosion, abrasion, oxidation and deformation.

Selecting Sensor Protection Tubes

When a pressurized fit is not essential, a sensor protection tube can offer another method of safeguarding sensing devices. These pipe-shaped receptacles are economical, low maintenance alternatives to the thermowell. The tubes are commonly used in heat treatment furnaces, ovens, ducts and other applications. Processes with corrosive effects will require corrosion-resistant materials, such as those found in coated and ceramic protective tubes. Our tubes for sensors come with corrosion resistance, thermal shock resistance and strong construction for longer lives. Leading edge designs support fast readings and low maintenance.
