NICARB – Thermocouple Protection Tubes
Nitrite bonded Silicon Carbide (without steel inner tube)
Non-ferrous metals such as aluminium, brass, copper and copper alloys.
up to 1500 °C
with flange, groove or plane at the open end.

thermocouple protection tubes
Made by high-pressure isostatic compaction techniques and subsequent high temperature nitridation, NICARB, silicon nitride bonded silicon carbide thermocouple protection tubes are of premium quality. Their life span potential in many applications, where mechanical damage is minimal, makes them very economical. Where good practices prevail, these long life protection tubes are the most economical.
Thermal, mechanical and physical properties:
|Silicon carbide content||78 – 81||%|
|Si3N4||19 – 22||%|
|Open porosity||18 – 22||Vol.-%|
|Compressive strength (at 20 °C)||85 – 100||N/mm2|
|Bending strength (at 1400 °C)||20 – 30||N/mm2|
|Thermal conductivity (at 1100 °C)||8||W/mK|
|Thermal extension coefficient (20 - 1100 °C)||4,5||K-1 x 10-6|
|Average specific heat (20 – 1100 °C)||1050||J/kgK|
|Temperature exchange resistance||excellent|
