General Purpose Thermocouples (Tube & Wire)
TGU style general purpose thermocouple probes, sometimes referred to as tube and wire thermocouple probes are available in many standard and custom configurations. These are economical thermocouple assemblies that usually consist of a soft insulated fiberglass or Teflon wire that is housed in a stainless steel tube.
Although this is a very simplistic thermocouple design, it is very versatile and durable if specified properly. Diameters of .093” to .500” are available in almost any length and can be formed with 45° and 90° bends. Almost any type of lead wire or thermocouple connector can be used, which allows for a great deal of flexibility in designing for low-cost applications.
Typically, this type of sensor assembly is used in foodservice equipment, packaging equipment, medical equipment, laboratory and general industrial applications. Durex Industries designs and manufactures temperature sensors to meet the requirements of commercial and industrial applications.
