Watlow Melt Bolt Thermocouple
Direct measurement of temperature in the plastic stream of a molding machine
Watlow Melt Bolt Thermocouple temperature sensors - are designed so that the sensitive closed end portion of the tip can be inserted directly into the plastic stream of an extruder or injection molding machine. The measuring junction is thermally isolated from the metal bolt mass, assuring accurate reading of the melt temperature up to 260°C (500°F) continuous. Bolt is 300 series stainless steel.

Achieving specified temperature levels is critical to industrial processes. It's imperative that temperature sensors are designed and manufactured to exacting specifications for accuracy and reliability. Watlow is committed to providing you with the most accurate, high-integrity temperature measurement products possible. Watlow offers from stock the greatest breadth of contact temperature measurement sensors and related components. Whatever your temperature sensing needs, Watlow can provide the optimum configuration, with the accuracy you require.
