A thermocouple welder is a heat-resistant tool used to weld thermocouple junctions. Thermocouples act as temperature sensors and are directly welded to the metal piece to sense temperature changes. There are various types of thermocouple welders such as the ones which use the Micro TIG technology to create uniform bead junctions. Thermocouple welding helps create a strong thermocouple junction. Therm-X is a well-known manufacturer of thermocouple welders, and we offer various models of the same. The Therm-x Model 300 welder is a tungsten-inert-gas (TIG) type of welder.
Common Beneficial Features of Thermocouple Welders
Here are some common beneficial features of our thermocouple welders:
- TIG welders are operated with a bottle of argon gas and a pressure reducing valve.
- The thermocouple wires melt owing to the flowing current that raises the temperature.
- Once the current stops flowing upon the termination of the electric arc, the melted wire cool to form a welded thermocouple.
- The main benefit is that this thermocouple welder model is easy to use and portable.
- There is no issue of contamination due to other gases or airborne particles.
- This welder is cost effective and repeatable.
- It weighs up to 10 lbs. and has a power of 115VAC at 60 Hz.
- Model 300 works well with wires ranging from 20 to 40 gauge with time adjustment on the front panel.
- For wires with low gauges, the excess heat that remains in the electric arc after melting is dissipated in the wire holder which acts as a heat sink.
- The jaws in this model are made of copper which facilitate high conductivity.
Application Areas of Thermocouple Welders
Thermocouple welding is required in almost all industries where temperature sensing is required. Our thermocouple welders are used for the following:
- To weld thermocouple to highly conductive metals
- For pulse arc welding
- For resistance welding
- For measurement samples
