SOR® manufactures a complete line of thermocouple elements, Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD) sensors, thermowells, industrial assemblies and specialty temperature sensors at our Lenexa, Kansas and Houston, Texas facilities. Products include multipoint temperature sensors, sanitary RTDs, high temperature furnace thermocouples, surface/tubeskin thermocouples and so much more to suit a wide variety of industrial applications and OEM markets. With broad industry experience, technical expertise, and state-of-the-art facilities, we can meet both demanding and general purpose temperature measurement requirements.
For more information, please download the Temperature Sensor Catalog (Form CAT1667) catalog.
All RTDs are 100% tested to insure that the accuracy and the continuity of the product have not been affected by the manufacturing process. The standard sheath material on all RTDs specified is 316SS. Other sheath materials and coatings are available. Elements are either thin film or wire wound, depending on the style RTD selected. Thin film elements are used in all constructions unless otherwise specified. Each RTD is supplied with a heavy duty spring.
Types of RTDs available:
All industrial thermocouples are manufactured using a high purity mineral oxide insulation and a metallic sheath. The standard sheath material unless otherwise noted is 316SS. The ODs found in the catalog are those that are typically used when an element is housed in a well or protection tube. Each industrial thermocouple is supplied with a heavy duty spring.
Types of Thermocouples available:
The thermocouple and RTD designs for these sensors are multi-purpose but all can be easily installed in an existing thermowell. All thermocouples are made with high purity mineral oxide insulation and a high temperature stainless steel sheath. RTD’s are selected by determining the temperature range and vibration considerations. The 1440 has a sealed weld connection preventing hot gases from escaping and consequently can be used without a thermowell. The 1443 is designed specifically for use in a thermowell and comes with a spring assembly which insures positive contact to the bottom of the well and provides good response characteristics. The 1445 eliminates the need for an exact immersion length. The 1450 is a sealed weld connection and the 1455 is adjustable with compression fitting. Tube well assemblies come with 0.020” (0.508 mm) wall tube and a replaceable spring loaded sensor made to fit the tube I.D.
