When a component part fails, it is only natural to ask why and then strive to determine the root cause. Gathering all possible information about the damage event and performing a thorough failure analysis is a critical first step in the process.
Our discussion of thermocouples continues with more practical advice and a deeper understanding into how to install and maintain thermocouples so as to control the heart of any thermal-processing system. Let’s learn more.
Accurate temperature control of heat-treating furnaces, ovens and baths depends in large part on the proper choice of thermocouples as well as on ancillary items such as extension (lead) wire, protection tubes and connectors.
