Type S mineral insulated thermocouple cable

Thermocouple cable Type S is a thermocouple junction particularly used at high temperatures. Type S, Pt10%Rh-Pt shares almost the same characteristics as type R (Pt13%Rh-Pt), but type R has a higher Seebeck coefficient than type S. The temperature range of type S, Pt10%Rh-Pt thermocouples is -50°C ..+1480°C.

Type S thermocouples are highly valued for their broad temperature range, accuracy, stability, and longevity, making them suitable for various high-temperature applications.

For type S MI cable we work with ARi Industries deliverying high quality AerOpak MI cable. The AerOpak® mineral insulated cable range is designed to withstand extremely harsh environments that would typically damage other thermocouple cables. Thanks to its robust construction and a wide selection of sheath materials, the AerOpak® cable is highly resistant to corrosion and operates effectively within the highest temperature limits of the chosen materials.

With a temperature range from 0°C to 1768°C (32°F to 3214°F), type S is ideal for processes requiring precise temperature control, such as metallurgy. Their high accuracy and stability are especially beneficial at elevated temperatures, crucial kilns, glass manufacturing and semiconductor industries.

Additionally, they are preferred in scientific research for accurate temperature measurements. While they have a longer lifespan than other thermocouples, it’s important to note that they may experience drift over time, particularly at higher temperatures, which can impact their accuracy.
