Thermocouples are widely used as a method of measuring temperature and contain two different alloy wires joined together at the measuring end and connected to a meter or other thermocouple EMF sensing device at the reference end. Thermocouples are versatile temperature sensors, robust and relatively inexpensive and can be used across a wide range of process temperatures. Scott Precision Wire manufactures wires for base metal thermocouple types N, K, E, J and T and for compensating types KCB and SCB/A.

Testing and Calibration (Offset Thermocouple Profiles)
OHMALLOYWire has an in-house laboratory capable of testing the wires as single thermoelements or thermocouple pairs from -50°C to 1200°C and testing can be arranged externally for calibrations required outside this temperature range. Full EMF profiling is provided for all our thermocouple wires and this facility also allows us to manufacture offset EMFthermocouple wires for special applications. Test results can be supplied as either mV readings or °C deviations from the nominal thermocouple values. The mV readings can be given for either the single thermoelement, so that different batches of wire may be matched later, or for the thermocouple pair. We can even match a single thermoelement you may have in stock either from readings you have or from a sample we can test.
Thermocouple Wire Production and Length / Sizes
Rod is purchased from a number of high quality sources and processed through our equipment to create the required format. Round wires can be supplied in solid form from 3.25mm to 0.07mm diameter and bunched or stranded wires from 5mm² to 0.05mm². Bunched and stranded wires tend to be used as cable conductors as they are more flexible and resistant to work hardening than solid wires. Please see our Bunched section for further details. Rolled tape or slit strip can also be supplied in a range of sizes and packaging formats including coils and spools. Thermocouple products can be supplied fully annealed, using our inert atmosphere annealers, or to a range of hardnesses and tensile strengths.
