  • The Protection Tube extends past the tip, protecting the tip from damage while loading the kiln

  • Keeps the oxide dust from the thermocouple tip from getting into the kiln while firing.
    (Any dust should still be vacuumed when doing the normal cleaning of the kiln).

  • Protects thermocouples from excessive radiation errorfrom the nearby hot elements.

  • Reduces zone control errors because the tips of all thermocouples are equally exposed to the heat of the kiln while still being as protected as possible.

    • The protection tubes are 3/4” in outside diameter with a 1/2” inside diameter (which accommodates the standard 8 gauge Type K thermocouple).

    • There is a flange on the back end of the thermocouple to prevent it from going into the kiln.

    • The tube is open but protrudes past the delicate tip of the thermocouple.
