Have you ever wondered where the warmest place on earth is? The answer may be surprising to most as it’s not a geographical location, rather small confined areas. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) stated the highest temperature ever recorded on the surface of the earth was discovered in 1913, in Death Valley, where temperatures reached 56.7°C. In today’s society that may seem extremely warm, but in the grand scheme of things it really isn’t.

In the last decade, there have been more technological innovations and discoveries than ever before. In order to keep up with these new discoveries manufacturing processes must consistently be redesigned for optimal efficiency. It has gotten to the point where extreme safety measures must be put in place in order for certain operations to legally continue. This is where high-temperature wire thrives, while most other wire and cable products begin to breakdown around 90°C or 105°C, Sycor’s high-temperature wires have a minimum resistance of 150°C. The high-temperature wire and cable family consists of many different types of Silicone and Teflon products with temperature ratings of: 200°C, 250°C, 400°C and 450°C.

With temperatures ranging from 150°C to 1350°C Sycor’s able to provide a wire and cable solution for every temperature dependent application. With a massive temperature range and a wide range of solutions Sycor’s high-temperature cables are able to serve a wide range of markets:

High-Temperature Wire Considerations

Each material used in high-temperature wire provides different attributes, which determines just how much temperature each product can handle. Sycor specializes in high-temperature wire and stocks 15 different models that excel in different settings and industries we serve. If you’re looking for extreme temperatures above 400°C go check out our thermocouple high-temperature wire, which has temperature ratings of −200°C to +1350°C. Sycor’s high-temperature wires provide solutions to all applications no matter the environment or ampacity.

Two of the most important factors to consider when selecting a high-temperature Wire is the temperature rating and ampacity. The temperature rating is exactly what it sounds like and is defined as the maximum continuous temperature a specific wire can withstand during its expected lifetime. Ampacity is the maximum current an insulated conductor can safely carry without exceeding its insulation and jacket temperature limitations. Taking into consideration both of these factors is imperative in choosing the right high-temperature wire for your application.

 

Thermocouple High Temperature Wire

 

High-Temperature Thermocouple Cable

Type J Thermocouple (Iron / Constantan):

The type J thermocouple is very common but has a more restricted range than the others reaching temperature limits ranging from -40°C to 760°C. Type J thermocouple is a cost-effective choice that although isn’t as strong as other alternatives, is still continuously reliable.

Type K Thermocouple (Nickel-Chromium / Nickel-Alumel): 

The type K is a very common type of thermocouple. The Type K thermocouple is more accurate and reliable than Type J, as the temperature range is much wider. Type K thermocouple is very reliable and has a very wide temperature range of −200°C to +1350°C.

Type T Thermocouple (Copper / Constantan): 

The Type T thermocouple is very stable and has a temperature range of −200°C to +350°C. Type T is often used in cryogenics and ultra-low freezers usually located in laboratories, because of its ability to operate in extremely low temperatures.

Type N Thermocouple (Nicrosil / Nisil): 

The Type N has very similar accuracy and temperature limits as Type K. The type N thermocouple has overall better performance and better repeatability than Type K, thus making it slightly more expensive for its operating temperature of −270°C to +1300°C.

Type E Thermocouple (Nickel-Chromium / Constantan): 

The Type E thermocouple is able to handle stronger signals and higher accuracy than previous Types J or K. This specific grade can be used for testing heating appliance safety, for temperature ranges between −50°C to +740°C and an extremely accurate range between −50°C to +140°C.

  
What is the difference between thermocouple wire and extension wire?

Extension grade wire is a lower grade, cost-effective choice. It is applied by extending from the thermocouple probe to the instrument receiving the signal, where the user can then visually see the results. The Extension wire also has a lower temperature range in which the wire can be used effectively.
