Special Application: Stagnation Thermocouples

THERMO ELECTRIC offers a large range of Special Application Thermocouples that have been developed over the last 78 years.

STAGNATION THERMOCOUPLES, classified as NSN 6685-00-203-2389  are one of the many special application thermocouples that Thermo Electric has been maintaining expertise and have been manufacturing for decades.

This special  thermocouples are used on jet engines and gas turbine generators to measure the temperature of inlet air and exhaust gases. The strategically located holes in the protection tube “stagnate” the air as it rushes past the thermocouple sensing tip. This reduces the amount of frictional heating caused by the high velocity air streaming measures the temperature of the gas.

Other configurations are available to measure total stream, or combination gas temperatures.
