Proper Thermocoupling Maintenance, Handling & Storage: 

  • In order to improve and understand the life cycle of each thermocouple, it is important to implement a routine preventative maintenance program to include recording the life, and cause of failure for each thermocouple. 
  • Thermocouples should always be stored at room temperature, in a non-humid environment and sealed in a (Air Tight) bag in order to prevent moisture from causing contamination, should long term storage be necessary. 
  • Thermocouples should always be handled with care as they are somewhat a delicate instrument. 
  • A properly handled and installed thermocouple will provide years of service life under normal conditions.
