Tungsten-Rhenium thermocouple alloy combinations were developed to meet the need for measuring very high temperatures, up to 2315°C.
OMEGA makes available two widely used Tungsten-Rhenium thermocouple alloy combinations: Type C: Tungsten 5% Rhenium (+) vs. Tungsten 26% Rhenium (-) Type D: Tungsten 3% Rhenium (+) vs. Tungsten 25% Rhenium (-)
In order to guarantee the limits of error, OMEGA sells Tungsten-Rhenium thermocouple wire only in matched pairs. Because of the inherent brittleness of unalloyed Tungsten, Rhenium has been added to the positive leg of types C and D to improve handling characteristics.
Sold only as matched pairs in units of 300 mm, which includes a 300 mm long positive wire and matched 300 mm long negative wire.
