High-performance temperature sensors for the most demanding environments

Thermocouples are particularly suited for high-temperature applications found in the chemical, petrochemical, and refinery industries. Their advantages are many, including a fast response time (thanks to a small diameter) and lower cost. And with conductor cables encased inside a mineral-insulated sheath, thermocouples perform reliably in processes with high pressure and vibration. Thermowells provide additional protection against corrosive process media and extreme operating conditions. WIKA offers a comprehensive portfolio of thermocouples with multiple temperature ranges, connection heads, output signals, and safety certifications.

Can I replace U and L thermocouples per DIN 43710 with Type T and J thermocouples per DIN IEC 60584?

No. Type T and J themocouples have a different thermal voltage characteristic, which would lead to a measuring error. Type U and Type L thermocouples should only be delivered as replacement parts in old installations. With the construction of new p ...
