washer.jpg (8703 bytes)Washer Thermocouples

Washer thermocouples are an excellent low cost solution to measure surface temperature with a 24 hour delivery (or better). These thermocouples consist of insulated thermocouple grade wire cut to length, with a weld on one end. After forming the welded end into a circle by using a special Tungsten Inert Gas Welder in an argon atmosphere, a second weld strengthens the joint. The junction then goes into the washer assembly for folding and crimping to the thermocouple wire. Compensated spade lugs and miniature or standard connector terminations are available. Number eight (#8) washer uses 24 gage solid wire and number ten (#10) washer uses 20 gage solid wire.

Standard Thermocouples Include: 12 leads, STL  stripped lead termination, choice of washer size in PFA Teflon® or Fiberglass insulation.
