Melt Thermocouples

Melt Thermocouples
Vol. 24 #2, Sept. 1997

Melt thermocouples are often one of the best ways to analyze, troubleshoot, or optimize an extrusion process, but many adaptors or heads have no port available.

Even if you do not have a requirement for melt temperature in your process or control system, ALWAYS provide an instrument port in the adaptor or head with a plug. The port will prove to be invaluable some day for troubleshooting or process optimization.
