  • Components of MI Cable

    1) Tube/Sheath - protects the thermocouple from process conditions.

    Alloys Available:
    - Stainless Steels: 304, 310, 316, 321, 347, and 446
    - Nickel Alloys: Inconel 600, Inconel 601, Inconel 625, ix750, Incoloy 800, Incoloy 825, Monel 400, and Nickel
    - Exotic alloys / Super alloys: Hastelloy X, Hastelloy C276, Haynes™ 188, Haynes™ 230, Haynes™ 556 & Haynes™ Alloy HR-160. Tantalum and Titanium also available.

      2) Wire - provides EMF output corresponding to the temperature.
    - Calibration/Types available include the following: J, K, T, E, N, C (Tungsten/Rhenium); Nickel/Nickel-Moly, and the platinum alloys - R, S, B and Platinel(TM).

    3) Insulation - provides electrical separation between the wires. We offer High Purity (>99.4%) and Normal or "Low" Purity (>96.4%), as well as Hafnia (aka hafnia oxide or hafnium) and Aluminum Oxide in some applications.
