Thermocouple wire

Kamet has a wide range of the most commonly used thermocouple alloys, with diameters ranging from Ø 0.1 up to Ø 3.26 mm in stock. We supply thermocouple wire type K, N, J, E and T, but also Tungsten Rhenium type C and D. Furthermore, we offer noble metal wire like thermocouple type S, R and B.

The available types of thermocouple wire

Are you in need of a complete sensor rather than just wire? Visit our high-temperature thermocouple page. On this page, complete assemblies are explained, and through our brochure, you can directly configure one.

Type K thermocouple wire

In general type K, NiCr-Ni has a wide temperature range. It is reliable and economically priced.

Type N thermocouple wire

Type N, NiCrSil-NiSil shares the same accuracy and temperature range as the type K, NiCr-Ni, but type N is more stable.

Type J thermocouple wire

Type J, Fe-CuNi wire is well suited for oxidizing environments.

Type E thermocouple wire

Type E, NiCr-CuNi thermocouple wires are well suited for sub-zero cryogenic use.

Type T thermocouple wire

Type T, Cu-CuNi is a very stable thermocouple junction for cryogenic applications in particular.

Type S thermocouple wire

Type S thermocouple wire (Pt10%Rh) is used in applications with extreme temperatures (max 1600⁰C).

Type R thermocouple wire

Type R, Pt13%Rh-Pt shares a lot of characteristics with type S, but type R has a higher Seebeck coefficient than type S.

Type B thermocouple wire

Type-B, Pt30%Rh-Pt6%Rh wire is often used at high temperatures. It is more expensive than type S and R wire since it contains more Rhodium.

Type C and D high temperature thermocouple wire

Type C (Tungsten 5% Rhenium, Tungsten 26% Rhenium wire) & Type D (Tungsten 3% Rhenium, Tungsten 25% Rhenium wire) thermocouple wires are suited for measurements up to 2320 °C range. Type C & D thermocouples are well-suited for vacuum furnaces at extremely high temperatures.
