By Amphenol Advanced Sensors 47
Amphenol Advanced Sensors' self-adhering surface temperature sensors from Thermometrics are designed for industrial HVACR applications, typically for placement on the external wall of a water tank or boiler reservoirs. They are also suitable for reservoir tanks working in conjunction with solar panel water heating systems. This range of adhesive pad sensors detects overtemperature resulting from a malfunction or a dry-fire.
Pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes loaded with ceramic powders provide high thermal conductivity and thus excellent heat transfer from the heat source to an NTC thermistor while maintaining appropriate levels of dielectric strength. An adhesive-lined foam backing tape provides air and moisture resistance with optional WRC (5470) water safety and DIN 4102 part 1 (B3) fire safety approvals.
