Extrusions For Temperature Measurement

Crushable insulators are rigid tubes, rods, and multi-hole configurations available at lengths up to about 200 mm (<30:1 L/D recommended) and generally round (not required) configurations of constant cross-section (required).

These insulators are designed to be inserted into the metal sheath with conductor elements already threaded in them. The assembly is then swaged or drawn to crush the insulator into a fine, flowable powder which will allow elongation of the cable and tightly compact to maintain separation and electrical insulation of the metallic components.

They may be designed to crush very easily to protect soft platinum components, or with more integrity to improve handling and performance properties. Please refer to the strength specifications
