There are many types of thermocouples, each with its own unique characteristics in terms of temperature range, durability, vibration resistance, chemical resistance, and application compatibility. Type J, K, T, & E are the most common types of thermocouples.Type R, S, and B thermocouples are used in high temperature applications.
Thermocouples are used in many industrial, scientific, and OEM applications. They can be found in nearly all industrial markets: Power Generation, Oil/Gas, Pharmaceutical, BioTech, Cement, Paper & Pulp, Rubber industries etc. Thermocouples are also used in everyday appliances like stoves, furnaces, and toasters.
Thermocouples are typically selected because of their low cost, high temperature limits, wide temperature ranges, and durable nature.
