Thermowell Baffles

Jacketed with PTFE

PTFE Jacketed Thermowell-baffles for inserting thermocouples below the liquid level of corrosion mixtures are designed to withstand immersion in all acids, except hydrofluoric, at temperatures to 350°F. Their corrosion resistance and strength are also designed to provide long-life and maintenance-free operation of both thermowells and vessels. They are constructed of a PTFE jacketed steel pipe with a special tantalum bulb swaged on the bottom end. Heat conductivity of 0.130 cal./cm2/°C/sec. is provided through the tantalum bulb which combines good chemical resistance with high thermal conductivity.

Notes: Maximum Length = 10ft.
*Thermowells have oversize O.D. which will not fit directly into standard size vessel nozzles. By selecting a smaller size pipe and a R60692 Special Reducing Flange, the correct fit can be achieved.
**Recommended maximum length for mild agitation is shown as a general guide for liquids having about the same density and viscosity as water. For longer lengths or more severe operating loads (density, viscosity and velocity of fluid at the pipe), a larger size or internal bracing should be employed. Exceeding the maximum recommended service temperature and/or pressure or maximum recommended unsupported length can result in premature failure and possible personnel and equipment hazard.
