Pyrometry Sheaths for Use in Furnances
December 1, 2014
Morgan Molten Metal Systems (MMMS), Wallingford, Conn., recently announced the release of its HotRod pyrometry sheaths and other pyrometer assembly products, which are made of an erosion-resistant clay-graphite mix with special plasticity properties.
The pryometer assemblies are designed to have a metal wire inserted into them and then placed into a metal bath to measure the temperature. HotRod sheaths, designed for use in furnaces and other high temperature environments, are supplied with a 0.5-in. (12.7mm) threaded steel tube for attachment to the furnace pyrometry system. MMMS's pyrometer assemblies have a glaze on the ceramic exterior that protects the product from oxidation to reduce downtime. HotRod sheaths with inner steel tubes are resistant to 1,832 F (1,000 C) and are typically used for aluminum applications. HotRod products require no special tools for installation.
