Type "J" Thermocouple Wire with High Temperature Insulation

     You Can Buy This Product Online!    



High Temperature Insulation

Metal Overbraid Specifications.

  • High Quality Duplex Thermocouple Wire

  • Highest Temperature Insulation Available

  • Choice of Wire Gauge, Insulation & Spool Length



Product Description

Performance Features



Ceramic Fiber: Highest temperature flexible insulation available. The braided yarn is a composition of the oxides of alumina, Boric and silicone. Each conductor as well as the overall jacket is braided with high temperature yarn to provide maximum flexibility at extremely high temperatures.

Designed for continuous use at temperatures to 2200°F (1205°C), intermittent use to 2600°F (1430°C). Good abrasion and chemical resistance.

  • Replacement for beaded T/C€™s

  • Heat treating

  • Coke Ovens

  • Soaking pits

  • Furnace Survey

  • Brick & Tile Kilns


Ceramic Fiber & Mica: This construction has a mica barrier tape applied to each single conductor prior to being insulated with the ceramic fiber yarns. This construction is identical to the CFCF construction except for the addition of a light jacket of saturant and the mica tape, which protects against potential shorting from abrasion and chemical oxide.

Designed for continuous use at temperatures to 2200°F (1205°C), intermittent use to 2600°F (1430°C). Good abrasion  and chemical resistance. Helps prevent shorting caused from abrasion and chemical oxidation.

  • Replacement for beaded T/C€™s

  • Heat treating

  • Coke Ovens

  • Soaking pits

  • Furnace Survey

  • Brick & Tile Kilns


High Temp Glass: A high temperature, high tensile strength fiberglass, either color-coded or with tracer yarn, is braided on  both the single conductors and the overall jacket. Both are impregnated with a 5006F modified resin saturant.

Designed for continuous use at temperatures to 1200°F (650°C), intermittent temperatures to 1450°F (788°C). Good moisture and chemical resistance; fair abrasion resistance

  • Preheating & Stress relieving

  • Heat treating for annealing, aging or hardening

  • Furnace Temperature Surveys


Refrasil (Vitreous Silica):  High temperature silica fibers are braided on the single conductors as well as the overall jacket. Because saturant is not used, this product is not recommended for abrasive applications. This construction is braided to provide maximum flexibility at extremely high temperatures. A tracer is braided into the insulation for polarity and calibration identification.

Designed for continuous use at temperatures to 1800°F (980°C), intermittent use to 2000°F (1095°C). Not recommended for applications where insulation may be subject to abrasion.

  • Furnace survey T/C€™s

  • Heat treating


High Temp €œS€ Glass:  A high temperature, high tensile strength, extra heavy fiberglass yarn braided over each conductor. The insulated, color-coded conductors are impregnated with a high-temperature modified resin and twisted to form a pair. This product construction does not include an overall jacket

Designed for continuous use at 1200°F (650°C). Good abrasion resistance Easily stripped and terminated. Economically practical for short-duration applications.

  • Homogenizing furnaces for billet preheating

  • Furnace Temperature Surveys

  • Heat Treating.

  • Above temperatures are insulation ratings and actual wire product rating may be lower due to conductor size.

  • Special limits of error available on certain constructions.  Please call Us at 1-618-465-7623

  • Note: Ceramic, Refrasil and Hi-Temp Fiberglas insulations are color-coded with tracers.          

  • High performance metal overbraid and armor may be applied over the above insulation to provide additional abrasion and mechanical resistance. 304 Stainless Steel, Inconel 600, Tinned Copper, Wrapped Spiral Armor.
