Pipe Shoe Riser

Pipe Shoe Riser

This product was recently developed to have local indication of surface temperature on pipelines or piping systems. The primary advantage is that the sensor is external to the pipe, so modifications to the piping system are not required. The sensor is fastened to the pipe with hose clamps and is in constant contact with pipe surface and is typically mounted under the insulation. The sensor can be replaced without removing the insulation from the pipe. There is also a field termination point where long lead wire lengths would normally be used. The sensor is also available with a flex-armor assembly that can be placed on alternate plains and reduces the cooling effects for a more accurate measurement.
