Thermocouples are a popular means for measuring temperature due to their simplicity, relative low cost, and availability of different TC types for different environments and temperature ranges. MRF High Temperature Furnaces typically use Type C sheathed thermocouples for measurements up to 2000°C, beyond that an optical pyrometer is added to supplement the measurement range. Type C TC’s have the highest available range and when sheathed they can be employed in vacuum, inert, reducing or oxidizing environments.
TC’s will drift over time and become less accurate before failing. Regular calibration or replacement is required to ensure accurate and reliable measurements. For these reasons, a few spare TC’s should always be kept on hand. MRF specifically stocks TC’s for high temperature furnaces not easily found elsewhere.
