What is a Threaded Probe?
Threaded probes have a threaded process connection and usually rather short immersion lengths. They are typically used to measure fluid temperatures in pipes, small tanks or boilers. This is why we often refer to them as “boiler temperature sensors” or “boiler probes“.
Characteristics of Threaded Probes
Since boiler sensors usually touch the medium directly, they are quite precise and responsive. To ensure maximum water tightness and robustness, we mould either a connector or a cable transition directly onto the probe. With boiler probes, unscrewing the probe automatically means opening the process. This means that depending on your application, you’ll either have to empty the boiler or stop the process before removing the probe.
