MBC Bearing shoe thermocouple sensor 6 x 8mm

Datasheet View Catalog


A range of high accuracy miniature embedded (also known as embedment) thermocouple sensors designed for surface temperature measurements in general industrial applications such as in bearing shoe applications to give a reliable indication of bearing wear and oil film breakdown through continuous monitoring of temperature. These tip sensitive thermocouples have an operating temperature range of -25°C to +250°C and can be supplied with a pressure tested oil seal barrier to prevent leakage. Standard assemblies are easy to install in drilled holes for general temperature sensing applications, whereas the spring loaded ‘top hat’ style assemblies are inserted into a milled hole with a retaining clip pushed down to compress the spring and retain the sensor against the surface being monitored.
