Standard Specification for Mineral-Insulated, Metal-Sheathed Base Metal Thermocouples
|Publication Date:||1 November 2013|
|ICS Code (Temperature-measuring instruments):||17.200.20|
This specification covers the requirements for mineralinsulated, metal-sheathed base metal thermocouples for industrial or high-reliability applications. It applies specifically to thermocouples fabricated from sheathed thermocouple material in accordance with Specification E585/E585M. The specification provides for the selection of thermoelements, insulation, sheath material, measuring junction configuration, thermocouple assembly length, and the type of transition or termination.
This specification also includes provisions for either quality assurance or verification program requirements, or both, as a purchaser's option.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
