Customizing your cartridge heater with thermocouple

There are some things that can easily be customized on a cartridge heater such as the lead wire types, mounting options, lead options, end seal options, and even the built-in thermocouple.  This thermocouple comes in a variety of specs so you will need the correct thermocouple of the job. It can be attached to the inside of the cartridge heater or to the middle of the heater. These types of cartridge heaters are used to heat metal components in a tool and die.  They can are used to heat water in many applications. With the thermocouple on board, they are more sensitive to temperature changes and will turn on and off automatically. Depending on the stress that will be put onto the wires, cartridge heaters come with various sized and materials for lead wires to best suit their particular application.
