Thermocouple Sheath

OMEGATITE® 650 thermocouple sheaths, which have the combined properties of silicon nitride and aluminum oxide, feature high strength and hardness and are resistant to corrosion and metal attack. They are uniquely qualified for nonferrous molten metal applications and high-wear or high-impact environments up to 1250°C (2282°F). OMEGATITE 650 thermocouple sheaths are used extensively for continuous measurements in nonferrous metals. In molten aluminum, OMEGATITE 650 is thermally shock resistant and non-wetting; does not contaminate the melt; provides continuous, reliable temperature measurement; and is resistant to degradation even in aggressive aluminum lithium alloys.
