Mineral Insulated Thermocouple Sensor – PPL13-T
The plain stem of the thermocouple probe is made from your choice of material which includes various grades of Stainless Steel (321, 310, 316), Inconel 600 or Nicrobell. The tip is TIG welded closed to give a pressure-tight housing for the sensor.
Mineral insulated thermocouples are available with very small diameter sheaths to give extremely fast response. Many metric and imperial probe diameters are available from 0.5mm upwards.
The mineral insulated high temperature thermocouple offers a wide temperature range of -200 to +600°C.

Mineral Insulated Thermocouple Construction
One of the main advantages of the mineral insulated construction is the flexibility of the probe stem which means that it can easily be shaped on-site to fit your application, perhaps to fit around the inside wall of an oven. There is also greater flexibility on the length on the probe over the fabricated styles. Probes of many metres long are commonly manufactured and these are supplied coiled for easy transportation.
We stock a range of cables for use in our thermocouple sensors 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.
Additional Information about PPL13-T Thermocouple
The thermocouple temperature sensor is ideal for use with compression fittings or our PPL50-TW pocket making them easy to install in your process. The PPL13 is also available as an RTD/PRT PPL13 sensor.
Our PPL13-T flying lead thermocouple is made to order based on your application. If you’d like more information on any of our temperature readers, or our thermocouples UK, please contact us for a quote.
