FEP heat shrinkable probe covers offer the best all round material and shrink properties. They can be easily shrunk into place at 110°C, yet have a working temperature of 200°C.
The total chemical resistance offered by these probe covers make them attractive for universal applications, allowing stocking of only one type of probe that can be used for all environments.
We stock a range of standard sizes of FEP heat shrinkable probe covers, from 2.80mm to 16mm diameter. Find our FEP Probe Cover Sizes. However we understand that all our customers' applications have different requirements and so we can produce custom sizes.
Standard and special sizes from 1mm to 40mm diameter
Any length possible
Standard and custom-designed constructions
Flat or domed tip
Low shrink temperature does not damage sensor
Completely unaffected by chemicals and solvents
Temperature range from -200°C to +200°C
Thermocouple, platinum resistance or thermistor elements
Capacitance and magnetic proximity probes
If necessary, the boots can be supplied with the inside surface chemically etched so that the FEP probe cover can be bonded to the surface of the probe, although normally this is not necessary.
