As developers of off-highway equipment turn green and make greater use of biodiesel fuels, the need for biocompatible sensors increases. The EGT Diesel Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensor is one that features an enclosed foul-proof probe tip for operation in bio-fuel and diesel engine applications. Manufactured in the U.S. from Inconel and 316SS, this type K thermocouple can withstand extreme conditions, making it suitable for use in R&D and testing as well as in agricultural, marine, automotive/racing applications and in truck engine management systems and LNP injection systems.
The sensor is capable of surviving extreme vibration and heat up to 1200 degrees C. The foul-proof sensing tip is recommended for temperature measurements of sulfuric fuels such as diesel and bio-fuels. Measuring 0.187 in. in diameter (4.75 mm), the probe will fit most diesel engine exhaust systems from 0.750 in. (19 mm) to 4.0 in. (100 mm) in diameter with nominal installation modifications. A 90â€šÃ‚Â° bend to the probe accommodates tight-spaced mounting locations. An adjustable (316 Stainless Steel) 1/8 in. NPT compression fitting adapter is included.
The probe cable, over-braided in stainless steel for heavy-duty abrasion resistance, extends 6 ft (2 m) in length. Signal wires are Teflon insulated to ensure reliable and consistent high temperature measurement in the most extreme operating conditions.
