The Ceramicomb-1” is designed for use in presses, molds or harsh environments where a rugged, reusable dielectric sensor is desired. It is mounted such that the electrodes are flush with a platen or mold surface, insuring no interference with the flow of material during processing.
Key features of the Ceramicomb-1” are:
- The sensor is constructed with silver-palladium electrodes embedded in an alumina substrate, protected by a stainless steel sheath with a nominal 1.0” (2.54cm) diameter.
- A thermocouple is positioned in the ceramic just below the surface to allow measurement of process temperatures.
- Dielectric and thermocouple signals are routed through a 10ft (3m) long stainless steel conduit to high temperature connectors.
- Sensor and cabling are rated for operation up to 250°C and are suitable for R&D, QA/QC and manufacturing applications with repetitive operations.
