Thermowells from Love Controls

Thermowells

Drilled thermowells are manufactured from a single piece of bar stock. No welds are used in their construction. Flanged thermowells are made from two pieces of metal, a single piece of bar stock for the stem, and the flange from a piece of drilled flat stock. The two pieces are then welded and finished. All configurations shown are available in a variety of materials. Common styles are shown below each drawing. If the configuration you require is not in the standard list, use the chart below to select the part number that fits your requirements.

The cutaway drawing shows the cross section of both the tapered stem (drawing on left) and stepped stem (drawing on right).

Note: Insertion length for the thermowells in this section (top half) is determined by adding the A dimension with the inside tip thickness (1/4"), less the lag (if any) plus 1 1/4". [(A + 1/4)- (Lag + 3/4{standard hex head} + 1{thread length})] The following chart shows insertion lengths for some common A dimensions.

Note: Insertion length for the thermowells on the next section (bottom half) is determined by adding the A dimension with the inside tip thickness (1/4"), less the flange head and connector (2 1/4"). [(A + 1/4) - (2 1/4)] The following chart shows insertion lengths for some common A dimensions.
