Flexible Cable / Wire Thermocouples
We manufacture and design cable thermocouples, often called wire thermocouples. Cable thermocouples are a very cost effective construction of thermocouple with many options available to attach the sensor to your process. Exposed junctions are common with wire thermocouples as it gives a very quick response. The maximum temperature for a cable thermocouple is determined by its insulation but there are high temperature options such as glass fibre if required.
Made to your specification
There are a wide range of options for our wire/cable thermocouples. They can be constructed with many different insulation types, stranding options, thermocouple types and either exposed, grounded or insulated junctions.
Cable Thermocouple Designs
There are a variety of options when it comes to cable thermocouple design. Select the appropriate design below to view full specifications.
Common designs include:
If you are unsure exactly what you need, get in touch and we can help identify your requirements.
Cable Thermocouple With Screw Tip
This thermocouple design is often used by an equipment manufacturer where quick installation and replacement may be required.
Cable Thermocouple With Metal Pocket
The thermocouple is protected by a metal sheath. This configuration is popular in original equipment manufacture.
Cable Thermocouple With Leaf Sensor
This design is often used to measure between heater bands or other media.
Cable Thermocouple with Ceramic Pocket
This design is often used for high voltage applications. There are many variations on ceramic pocket that are available.
Cable Thermocouple With Pipe Clamp
This design is often used for boilers or frost protection and anywhere a pipe or its contents need to be measured.
Cable Thermocouple With Polymer Coating
This FEP polymer coated design displays a high level of acid resistance and voltage resistance.
Cable Thermocouple With Junction
A very inexpensive component for equipment manufacturers to install.
Cable Thermocouple With Eye/Washer
A very flexible design commonly used across a range of industries in multiple applications.
All our cable thermocouples are custom made, as such we are able to tailor your sensors exactly to your requirements. There are many options available including:
We’ve made cable thermocouples for over 15 years and today we are considered the best choice for custom built temperature sensors in the UK. We continue to apply our expertise and invest in the latest technology to provide our customers with the highest quality temperature sensors available.
