Transducer gland assemblies with high-temperature fiberglass-insulated thermocouple wire are specially designed for applications where the sensor wire is exposed to process temperatures reaching up to 1400°F (760°C). This assembly is particularly targeted for use with vacuum and/or inert gas back-filled furnaces with vessel wall temperatures up to 200°F (93.3°C) and pressures not exceeding 300 psi.
The assembly consists of magnesia alumina silicate vitreous fiber braided impregnated thermocouple grade wires on the body side, with stripped bare wires passing through the Conax-manufactured transducer gland. Sleeved insulation material on the wires exiting the cap side may be fiberglass/silicone impregnated, Teflon¨ or polyolefin.
Gland bodies, caps and followers are constructed from 303SST. Cap Style A offers a mounting thread only. Cap Style B provides threading on both ends for attachment to conduit or terminal heads. These assemblies are offered with Viton or Teflon sealants. Alternative sealants are available. Please consult a Conax Technologies sales engineer for custom needs.
