Thermocouple Type K 1050ºC Immersion Probe For Non Ferrous Metals
This is an ordered in item and as such is non refundable
We have sourced a range of Professional British made thermocouples built using heavy duty materials specifically for use in non ferrous molten metals. These assemblies have been designed to operate in the most demanding environments.
Each device is cabable of 600 dips approximately, before it burns out. This is dependant upon the temperature of the melt not exceeding the specification as well as the duration the tip is inserted into the melt. The tip is cabable of measuring up to 1300ºC but at this temperature reduced life span is inevitable. It is advisable to always use non wetting product to keep the tip clean from metal and slag.
To ensure long life store in a safe place after use and when cool remove any dross with a spatula / scraper and re-apply a non-wetting coat of graphite/carbon or deltacast ladle coat.
