Mineral Insulated Thermocouples


Mineral Insulated Thermocouples are manufactured from mineral oxide insulated metal sheathed cable. Mineral Insulated Cable consists of thermocouple wire insulated by compacted  magnesium oxide surrounded by a metal sheath.

Mineral insulated thermocouples are more durable, faster responding, longer lasting and capable for use at higher temperatures than ceramic insulator or fiberglass insulated thermocouples because the wires are encased and protected by compacted insulation and the metal sheath.
