High Temperature Encapsulated Strain Gauges
High temperature encapsulated strain gauges are an easy to install option for field and test applications at elevated temperatures.
Allowing strain gauge installation to substrates as hot as 250ºC without requiring stress raising spot welds.
Transparent, flexible coating prevents any risk of gauge grid contamination still allowing easy installation with original alignment marks.
Pre-wiring with high temperature soldered or welded lead wires.
High Temperature Encapsulated strain gauges are now available with a PG option. A PG option HT strain gauge has a thin layer of high temperature strain gauge adhesive applied to the bonding face which is heat treated to β stage. This treatment makes the installation process quicker and more efficient. To Install a PG option strain gauge, position the gauge, apply clamping pressure, and heat to 175ºC for 2 hours.
