Thermocouples

A Thermocouple is a sensor used to measure temperature. Thermocouples consist of two wire legs made from different metals. The wires legs are welded together at one end, creating a junction. This junction is where the temperature is measured. When the junction experiences a change in temperature, a voltage is created. The voltage can then be interpreted to calculate the temperature.

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.

We at dpstar Group manufacture thermocouples under the brand name Maltec-T. For further information please visit: www.dpstar.com.my  or Email: info@dpstar.com.my
