Aluminium Thermocouples

There are a number of specialist thermocouples that we supply to the aluminium industry. Whether it be pyrolysis of scrap, remelting or casting we can manufacture thermocouples to suit. Some of the aluminium thermocouples we can manufacture include:

  • Aluminium Remelt Sensors
  • Cast Iron Thermocouples
  • Syalon Thermocouples
  • Slab Thermocouples
  • Furnace Roof Thermocouples
  • Carbon/Anode Bake Thermocouples

We can replicate thermocouples from drawings or broken probes, or even improve existing designs. This can be to keep your existing plant operating or to supply new requirements.

Example Aluminium Industry Thermocouple Designs

Rare metal thermocouples

Rare Metal Thermocouple Assembly with Ceramic Sheath

The sensor can be protected by a ceramic sheath. There are a variety of ceramic sheaths available each with its own properties.

rare-metal-thermocouple-ceramic

Rare Metal Thermocouple Assembly with Metal Sheath

The sensor can be protected by a stainless or metal alloy sheath. These types of designs are often used in cement works or incinerators.

rare-metal-tc-metal-sheath

Rare Metal Thermocouple Assembly with Platinum Thimble

The sensor can be protected by a ceramic sheath with a platinum thimble at the hot end. This design is often used in container glass forehearths to take uniformity measurements but can be applied to other applications if suitable.

rare-metal-with-platinum-thimble

Rare Metal Thermocouple Assembly with Full Platinum Thimble

If required the sensor can be protected by a full length platinum thimble. It is a more robust design of the Rare Metal Thermocouple Assembly with Platinum Thimble.

Base metal thermocouples

Base Metal Thermocouple Assembly with Ceramic Sheath

The sensor can be protected by a ceramic sheath. There are a variety of ceramic sheaths available each with its own properties.

Base Metal Thermocouple Assembly with Metal Sheath

The sensor can be protected by a stainless or metal alloy sheath. These types of designs are often used in cement works or incinerators.

Mineral insulated thermocouples

MI Thermocouple with Pot Seal & Flexible Tails

A very common robust sensor with a wide range of applications. Also known as “bare leads” thermocouple.

MI-TC-with-Pot-Seal

Mineral Insulated Thermocouple Insert with Block

This standard design can be altered in accordance with IP65 and is very suitable for insertion into a pocket.

MTI

Mineral Insulated Thermocouple with Standard Plug

The standard plug enables the temperature sensor to be easily connected and disconnected to a variety of controllers and readouts in busy and demanding environments.

Mineral Insulated Thermocouple with Miniature Plug

The miniature plug enables the temperature sensor to be easily connected to a variety of hand held instruments and read outs.

MTM

Mineral Insulated Thermocouple with Head

This standard design can be altered in accordance with IP65 and is very suitable for insertion into a pocket.

MTH

MI Thermocouple with Permanently Attached Cable

This is a variation on the MI Thermocouple with Pot Seal & Tails. It comes with a longer cable and is often used in original equipment manufacture.
