Type K Thermocouple

Type K Thermocouple
K Type Thermocouples are one of most utilized temperature sensor technologies across the world due to a wide temperature range, ease of use and cost value. Type K temperature sensors are uitlized in very diverse applications from harsh industrial and machinery environments to precise research and laboratory applications to general temperature measurement including everyday consumer use.
  • Temperature Range of -326 to 2300°F (-200 to 1260°C)
    • Below 32°F (0°C) a special matching of the positive Nickel Chrome KP and negative Nickel Aluminum KN thermocouple alloys is typically reqired to provide acceptable accuracy.
    • Maximum continuous temperature is about 2,000°F (1,100°C) although can function at higher temperature with special sheathing, high purity insulation and precise manufacturing methods
    • Type K should not be used in reducing atmospheres unless protected by an appropriate protective sheath
  • Sensor contruction is very diverse from exposed fast response small diameters to larger diameters with special protective sheaths and others designed for surface measurement.
    • The Type K bare thermocouple elements can protected by compacted mineral insulation inside a bendable metal and rigidceramic sheaths to very flexible fiberglass braid and PFA/FEP teflon insulated wire designs.
