Thermocouples- mantle- also known as mineral-isolated thermocouples- are widespread in the temperature measuring technique. Because of their advantages of the mechanical and measurement techniques, they have been superseded the conventional thermocouples.
Furthermore, they also have put on the new ways for the problems, of which the solution is difficult or negative, on measuring tasks at thermometry; for example: at the construction of nuclear centrals, on the comprehensive chemical technics and at the other places.
Thermo wires of the thermocouples with a mantle are embedded in compressed oxide powder and coated by the metal mantle with thermic resistance. This structure method supplies the following advantages:

1. Thermocouples- Mantle can be produced in expected length

2. These elements can be bent in each place and thus, they can be extended to the measurement places where is difficult to be reached. The bends or distortions do not cause refraction and short circuit on wires. The long pieces are coiled to the bobbins.

3. They have high vibration resistances since they do not contain any components which can be come into vibration ( isolating pipes …etc )

4. Its thermo wires and measuring points are protected against to the oxygen and harmful gases by its hermetical outer mantle. Thereby a good resistance is also ensured with small diameters.

Technical Data:

Insulation Resistance : > 1000 M Ohm (at room temperature )
Minimum bend diameter : 2x mantle diameter
Each thermocouple is subject to the following tests :
Insulation resistance ( Thermopair against to the mantle ) :
> 100 M Ohm (at room temperature ) is measured by 250 V direct voltage
Cable diameter > is measured at 1.5 mm by 100 Volt direct voltage
Mantel transmission diameter < 1; % mm
Density (test point) Test pressure is 40 bar , at room temperature with nitrogen.

Mantle – Thermocouple – Materials  

Normal Implementation :

Measuring points against to the isolated Mantle
The thermopair is welded and isolated against to the mantle. The mantle is solder with the gas-tight locked by a spacer in the same type of material. The gap is filled out with magnesium oxide powder.

Grounded Implementation :

Thermopair with welded mantle
The Thermopair is welded into the lamella surfaces, There is a galvanic connection between the thermocables and the metal mantle. This kind of welding is implemented only on express desire. Mechanical forces, harmful for the element, arise by the rigid connection between thermocables and mantle due to the different thermal expansion.
Morever, inevitable thermal material arrives into the welded joint of the ground panel, and thus, it leads to the change of its corrosion characteristics. If a best heat is transferred from the mass medium to the antenna, It reflects to the reaction periods for recovery
