Thermocouple Elements

 

Bare Wire Elements| Ceramic Insulated| Platinum

Richards thermocouple elements are manufactured to our own high quality standards which meet or exceed ANSI Special Limits of Error for accuracy. Thermocouple elements can be ordered to suite specific temperature applications. Elements are available in all thermocouple calibration types and in wire gauge sizes from 38 to 6. Elements also be made to any required length. Thermocouple elements can be ordered bare which are uninsulated, or insulated with high temperature ceramic insulators.
