Thermetrics has designed and engineered its own line of Copper Slug Calorimeter Sensors for the TPP, RPP, CCHR, and other thermal protection test devices. Each sensor includes an insulation block and removable thermocouple extension wire and is calibrated in Thermetrics ISO 17025 accredited laboratory. Thermetrics sensors are J-Type thermocouples, built using 32 AWG SLE thermocouple wire. 32 AWG wire produces a faster response time than the more common 30 AWG wire and remains in full compliance with the standards. The insulation block is non-combustible, dust-free and contains no asbestos, mercury or lead.
The Calorimeter Sensor’s metal grip handle allows ease of placement onto the test bed and protects the sensor assembly. Thermetrics maintains a standard inventory of ASTM and ISO calibrated sensors available for immediate delivery. Sensors are approved for test standards that include ASTM F1939, F2700, F2702, F2703, ISO 17492, and NFPA 1971, 1977, and 2112.
