- Combination Indicating Gage and Limit Switch
- Critical/High Temperature Limit Switch Is Visible and Adjustable
- Switch Can Activate Alarms and/or Shut Down Equipment
- Contact Grounds Through Case
This very popular design features a diaphragm-actuated, temperature-indicating gage, with a built-in electrical switch for tripping alarms and/or shutdown devices.
This model has a 16-foot capillary length with a standard 1/2-14 NPT threading, and a temperature range from 160-320°F (71-160°C).
The gage mechanism is enclosed in a steel case coated to resist corrosion. A polycarbonate, break-resistant lens and a polished, stainless steel bezel help protect this rugged, built-to-last instrument. This vapor actuated gage features a sealed capillary tube and a sensing bulb. When subjected to heat, the liquid in the sensing bulb changes to vapor creating pressure against the diaphragm mechanism. The diaphragm translates this vapor pressure into a mechanical gage reading. Inside the 20T-320-16-1/2, the gage pointer acts as a temperature indicator and as one switch pole which completes a circuit when it touches the adjustable limit contact.
Contact(s) are grounded through the Swichgage® case.
This gage has a self-cleaning motion to enhance electrical continuity.
