Watlow AB style mineral insulated cut and stripped thermocouples are fast-responding, durable, and capable of handling higher temperatures than non-insulated thermocouples.
Watlow AB style mineral insulated cut and stripped thermocouples are manufactured with XACTPAK®, Watlow's trademark for metal-sheathed, mineral insulated (MI) thermocouple material. XACTPAK® responds quickly because the protective metal outer sheath allows the use of smaller diameter thermocouple conductors. The rock hard compacted MgO insulation further enhances the sensor's ability to "read" temperature by transferring heat quickly to the measuring junction.
The XACTPAK® protecting sheath and compacted insulation protects from moisture, thermal shock, high temperatures, and high pressure to allow the Watlow AB style mineral insulated cut and stripped thermocouple to outperform its bare wire counterparts in most applications.
The Watlow AB style mineral insulated cut and stripped thermocouple features mineral insulation for performance and allows users to terminate the thermocouple for convenience. The AB style is simply a section of XACTPAK® material, junctioned and stripped. The Watlow AB style mineral insulated cut and stripped thermocouple is the most basic of all the mineral insulated thermocouple styles. The cold end is stripped and sealed with epoxy to inhibit moisture penetration. A dual element style allows two instruments to run off the same element, reducing costs.
