Silicon Carbide Protection Tubes provide excellent thermal conductivity for quick response to temperature changes. They can be used to replace cast iron tubes, eliminating the possibility of iron pick-up. Spread surface treatment assures adequate protection of the thermocouple.
JMS Southeast offers two types of silicon carbide protection tubes. Type F and P are dense silica bonded silicon carbide and are manufactured with a flange or a plain end.
Type C and D are carbon bonded silicon carbide and graphite. They are manufactured with a black steel pipe located down the center. They have a 1/2" or 3/4" NPT connection to thread into place instead of a flange for mounting as Type A.
