HotRod sheaths from Morgan Molten Metal Systems offer superior thermocouple protection

Durable assemblies allow fast, accurate temperature readings in molten metal applications

Morgan's Molten Metal Systems business announces its HotRod™ pyrometry sheaths and other pyrometer assembly products, which protect thermocouples in furnace heating control systems. Industry proven for over 30 years, the pyrometer assemblies are made of a durable, erosion-resistant clay-graphite mix with special plasticity properties, which is then extruded into the proper shape.

The pryometer assemblies are designed to have a metal wire inserted into them, and are then put into a metal bath to measure the temperature. HotRod sheaths are designed for used in furnaces and other high temperature environments, and are supplied with a " (12.7mm) threaded steel tube for quick and easy attachment to the furnace pyrometry system.
The pyrometer assemblies are durable, with a glaze on the ceramic exterior that protects the product from oxidation, thereby reducing downtime. These assemblies offer effective thermocouple protection with high thermal conductivity for fast, accurate temperature readings and reduced fuel consumption. Single pyrotubes are heat resistant to 1600C, while the HotRod sheaths with inner steel tubes are resistant to 1000C and are typically used for aluminum applications. HotRod products require no special tools for installation.

US Battery - Solar RE L16XC Renewable Energy Battery

Our batteries have Xtreme thick plates with (XC Diamond Plate Technology) added to them. They have been designed for hours of heavy discharge each day, followed by a fast recharge during the daylight hours. Very few batteries can take the grueling deep discharge-recharge cycle every day for long periods of time. U.S. Battery has proven time and time again that our solar battery line can stand up to this type of battery torture day in and day out for years to come. When you demand reliable energy storage count on U.S. Battery every time!
