Adjustable Melt Bolt Thermocouples----Melt Bolt Thermocouple Probes.jpg

The TAM style adjustable melt bolt thermocouple probe has a movable probe activated by an inner screw mechanism. The temperature probe can be immersed into or withdrawn from the plastic melt stream while the extruder is in full operation at maximum flow rates and pressures. This feature permits temperature measurement at various depths in the melt stream, eliminates thermocouple breakage at startup and prevents hang-up. The thermocouple is self-cleaning, as it is retracted into the body any film formed on it is scraped off.

Adjustable Melt Bolt Thermocouples TAM1 Style

Adjustable Melt Bolt Thermocouples

The TAM1 style standard adjustable melt bolt assembly consists of a 1/8" outer diameter MgO insulated type "J" thermocouple in a stainless steel sheath. The body is stainless steel with a 1/2" - 20 UNF-2A thread. A thermal barrier reduces heat transfer from body to the thermocouple.

Adjustable Melt Bolt Thermocouples TAM2 Style

Adjustable Melt Bolt Thermocouples

The TAM2 style adjustable melt thermocouple features an all stainless steel construction and uses a compression fitting as the mechanism for the adjustment. This allows for easy and economical replacement of the mineral insulated thermocouple element.
