Product Announcement from Conax Technologies
Conax Technologies transducer gland assemblies with fiberglass-insulated thermocouple wire are specially designed for applications where the sensor wire is exposed to process temperatures reaching up to 900º F (482.2º C). This assembly is particularly targeted for use with vacuum and/or inert gas back-filled furnaces with vessel wall temperatures up to 200º F (93.3º C) and pressures not exceeding 300 psi. The assembly consists of bonded fiberglass-insulated/silicone impregnated thermocouple grade wires on the body side, 20 or 24 AWG, with stripped bare wires passing through the Conax Technologies -manufactured transducer gland. An alternative high-temperature fiberglass (magnesia alumina silicate vitreous fiber braid) for Type K wire, 20 AWG only, is also available with temperature capabilities up to 1400º F (760º C). Sleeved insulation material on the wires exiting the cap side may be fiberglass/silicone impregnated, Teflon or polyolefin. Available gland sealant materials are Viton and Teflon.
