Thermocouple Oil-Tight Bearing Sensor

Product ID: TCS580

The TCS580 is an immersion style thermocouple bearing temperature sensor with transition barrier, cable and flying leads used to measure the temperature of bearings which is a key indicator for oil film and bearing health monitoring. The transition barrier (oil seal) solves a common problem in industrial machinery and is a completely oil-tight solution that prevents oil leakage.

This leak-proof temperature sensor prevents oil migration from the sensor tip into the housing which happens due to the pressure of the oil inside the machine and capillary function which allows oil to migrate up the inside of the cable cores.

The TCS580 temperature sensor is available as a type E, type J, type K, type N or type T thermocouple in simplex or duplex configuration with an isolated junction.

The temperature probe is manufactured from class 1 mineral insulated cable and is available with either PTFE, PFA or fibreglass cable and is terminated with tails and is available with a pressure test certificate to verify the leak-proof design.
