Mineral insulated thermocouples are probably the most commonly used thermocouples in industry today. They are manufactured from a seamless metal sheath. The thermocouple element is insulated from the sheath by a compacted magnesium oxide powder.The temperature range is governed by the thermocouple type and sheath material.
These thermocouples are avaliable in a range of diameters from 1mm to 8mm. They are self armoured, sealed from the operating environment, extremely flexible and can be bent or shaped without any loss in operational performance.

These thermocouples are designed to have the flexibility of MI cable with the added advantage given by the simple construction of the type D thermocouple.With extended operating temperatures ranging from -200°C to +1000°C depending on application and sheath material. (Please contact the office for application advice.)
