Plain Stem Flying Lead Thermocouple - PPL1-T

Our Plain Stem Flying Lead Thermocouple PPL1-T temperature sensor is a general purpose probe with a choice of cable terminations for use in many applications. It is suitable for the measurement of liquids and gases across a wide temperature range. All sensors are made to order so it is generally possible to meet all of your requirements.

The plain stem of the probe is made from 316 stainless steel and the tip is TIG welded closed to give a pressure tight housing for the sensor. Many metric and imperial probe diameters are available from 2mm upwards.

We stock a range of cables for use in our sensor manufacturing from low cost PVC to high performance PTFE (Teflon) and high temperature glass fibre insulations. We can cover almost any requirement whether this is low or high temperature or other environmental considerations such as moisture ingress protection or protection against corrosive substances.

Other optional extras include pointed tip probes for insertion into semi-solids such as food, reduced diameter sensing tips for improved response times and pre-bent probes to fit your application perfectly.

The PPL1-T is ideal for use with compression fittings or our PPL50-TW pocket making them easy to install in your process. The PPL1 is also available as a Resistance Thermometer sensor. We are also able to supply the probe with your choice of thermistor sensor.

We offer a comprehensive calibration service and a wide choice of accessories.
