Labfacility stocks a wide range of IEC and ANSI color coded thermocouple cable / wire to suit various applications. The range consists of PVC, PFA, PTFE & Glassfibre insulated thermocouple cables. Labfacility also provides retractable curly leads and extension leads with miniature or standard thermocouple connectors.
Available in IEC, ANSI & JIS color coding
The range consists of PVC, PFA, PTFE, silicone rubber insulated cables & PRT retractable curly leads. The products are manufactured in the UK, distributed around the world and available in 100m, 50m, 25m and 10m options. All Thermocouple Cables are held in stock ready to ship.
Overview of the guide to wire and cable insulation and coverings:
PVC: Good general-purpose insulation for “light” environments. Waterproof and very flexible.
PFA (extruded): Resistant to oils, acids other adverse agents and fluids. Good mechanical strength and flexibility. PTFE better for steam/elevated pressure environments
PTFE (taped & wrapped): Resistant to oils, acids other adverse agents and fluids. Good mechanical strength and flexibility.
Glassfibre (varnished): Good temperature range but will not prevent ingress of fluids. Fairly flexible but does not provide good mechanical protection.
High-temperature Glass Fibre: Will withstand temperature up to 700°C but will not prevent ingress of fluids. Fairly flexible, not good protection against physical disturbance.
Ceramic Fibre: Will withstand high temperature, up to 1000°C. Will not protect against fluids or physical disturbance.
Glassfibre (varnished) stainless steel overbraid: Good resistance to physical disturbance and high temperature (up to 400°C). Will not prevent ingress of fluids.
