The TF-MX Series was developed in order to measure melt temperatures quickly and easily for all types of plastics.
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).
