PPL3-T Thermocouple Sensor Probe with Terminal Head
The plain stem of the thermocouple probe is made from 316 stainless steel the tip is TIG welded closed to give a pressure-tight housing for the sensor. The fitting into the terminal housing is also normally welded rather than being a compression fitting. Many metric and imperial probe diameters are available from 2mm upwards.
We stock a variety of terminal heads that cover all eventualities. The most popular terminal head is the aluminium alloy KNE head which is commonly used in the industry. However, we also offer other materials such as ABS, Nylon, FDA approved Polypropylene and of course 316 stainless steel for the most demanding applications. At Process Parameters, most of our terminal heads have IP ratings of IP67 or IP68.
We can fit several options inside the terminal heads that best fit your requirements for the thermocouple sensor. The simplest is a terminal block allowing you to connect directly to the sensor.
Alternatively, we can supply temperature transmitters with either a 4-20mA or a 0-10V output. Other options include intrinsically safe transmitters or those with HART protocol. We can also fit in head displays if required.
Additional Information about PPL3-T Thermocouple Sensor
The PPL3-T is ideal for use with compression fittings or our PPL50-TW pocket making them easy to install in your process. The PPL3 thermocouple sensor is also available as a resistance PPL3 thermometer sensor. We are also able to supply the sensor probe with your choice of thermistor sensor.
At Process Parameters, we offer a comprehensive in-house Pt100 calibration service and a wide choice of accessories for your application.
All of our temperature sensors and thermocouples are custom-built for your requirements in the UK. If you’d like some more information on ‘what does a thermocouple do‘, or a free quote, please get in touch.
What is a Thermocouple Sensor?
A thermocouple sensor is a device used to measure temperature. It consists of two different metal wires joined together at one end. When the joined end is exposed to heat or a temperature gradient, it creates a voltage that is proportional to the temperature difference. This voltage can be measured and converted into a temperature reading. A thermometer thermocouple sensors are commonly used in various industries for temperature monitoring and control, as well as in household appliances like ovens and water heaters.
