INJECTION MOLDING NOZZLE TYPE
In-Melt type thermocouples and RTDs are designed to bolt into the injector nozzle and sense the temperature of the melt directly, and is rated to 450°C (900°F). The standard 3/8" hex head stainless steel body has 3/8-24 NFT threads. The sensor tip extends 1/8" beyond the end of the bolt assembly.
Not In-Melt type thermocouples and RTDs are designed to screw into a blind hole in the nozzle, and is rated 450°C (900°F). The standard 1/4 NFT thread fits most standard nozzles.
EXTRUDER BOLT TYPE
Designed for direct mounting into extruder barrels, the Bolt Type thermocouples and RTDs offer easy interchangeability. Standard configuration has a 1/4" penetration into the barrel, and industry standard 1/2-20 NF thread. Order options allow barrel penetrations of 0 inches (flush) to 1 inch in 1/100th inch increments (specify as A dimension) and flex extension in 1 inch increments (specify as B dimension).
