Temperature sensor, all-metal design

The TF-MX Series was developed in order to measure melt temperatures quickly and easily for all types of plastics. The temperature sensors are economical and versatile and impress with their robustness and reliability. The rheological characteristics of innumerable plastics were considered during the design procedure of the conical measuring tip, so that highly viscous medias can be ascertained without any greater problems. Major advantages regarding the life-span and reliability of the sensor in comparison to sword sensors are ensured due to the correct installation procedure.

Measuring tip length

The measuring tip length is selected according to the polymer melt viscosity and melt channel diameter at the point where the instrument is located. The length can be selected in 5mm (0,2 inch) steps from 0 mm (0 inch) (flush) to 25 mm (1 inch). The standard design is suitable for melt temperatures of up to 400°C (1,000°F), the special Hastelloy design (see above) up to 500°C (932°F). All the tip lengths are available with thermocouples (Fe-CuNi type J or L, NiCr-Ni type K) or resistance sensors PT 100 (2-, 3- or 4-wire).
