Featured Product from Dalton Electric Heating Co., Inc.
Watt-Flex split-sheath cartridge heaters can be manufactured with a groove along the exterior of the cartridge to accommodate a needle-type thermocouple for more accurate temperature sensing and control.
Watt-Flex external thermocouples outperform internal monitors used in conventional heaters. With Watt-Flex heaters, you can:Measure temperature at the precise point of heat transfer.
Unlike conventional heaters with internal thermocouples that measure internal heater coil temperature, Watt-Flex external thermocouples measure more precisely at the point where heat transfers from the heater to the host metal.Monitor temperature at any point along the heater.
Dalton Watt-Flex heaters give you the flexibility to monitor heat at any point along the heater, instead of at pre-defined fixed points with internal monitors in conventional heaters.Replace heater or thermocouple independently.
With Watt-Flex external thermocouples, you can replace either the heater or the thermocouple independently, without having to replace the entire heater/thermocouple as with conventional heater designs.Thermocouple Specifications
