Fluid Temperature Sensors
AMETEK introduces a highly reliable, and cost effective method of sensing the temperature of engine oil for GEAE CF6-80C FADEC engines. The Temperature Engine Oil (TEO) Sensor (Model 8TC34ABV1) is comprised of a stainless steel flanged housing, Mil-C-83723 connector, and type K thermocouple wire sheathed in an MgO matrix inside a stainless steel tube. All components are welded to form a hermetically sealed unit. The dual element, enclosed thermocouple junction is precisely positioned in the engine oil line. Other Fluid System Temperature Measurement Applications While the TEO was developed for engine oil, AMETEK has successfully designed and developed temperature measurement devices for fuel and hydraulic systems on commercial and military aerospace applications. AMETEK’s understanding of the environmental requirements for these systems provides highly reliable and cost effective solutions.
Temperature measurement can be accomplished using thermocouple or resistance temperature device (RTD) techniques depending upon system interface or accuracy considerations. Mechanical interface options include flange mount or threaded fluid fitting mounting. Electrical connections can be accomplished using receptacle connector orintegrated cable assembly with remote termination.
