Surface Temperature Probes
What Is a Surface Temperature Probe?
Surface temperature probes are temperature sensors that measure the temperature of a surface. This may be on the outside of a pipe, for example – we then speak of a pipe temperature sensor. Alternatively, it can be on a housing or some other flat surface, in which case it is often referred to simply as surface probe.
Pipe Temperature Sensor
We have three solutions for measuring the surface temperature on pipes:
In the -40 to 85 °C temperature range, we recommend our dedicated pipe temperature sensor ICSkin. With its special shape, it fits snugly against the pipe and can be easily fastened with a cable tie or clamp. It can withstand condensation and freezing cycles (IP67 rating).
Between 85 and 105 °C, our overmoulded cable probe with pipe surface adapter is a good solution.
For temperatures above 105 °C, we recommend our mineral insulated sheathed RTDs. They are extremely robust (IP67 rating). Our adapters, available both for flat surfaces and for pipe surfaces, guarantee good heat transfer and easy installation. Good luck finding a more robust surface probe anywhere!
