Description / Abstract:

This specification establishes requirements for compacted, mineral-insulated, metal-sheathed, base metal thermocouple cable,2 with at least two thermoelements.3

This specification describes the required material, processing and testing requirements, and also the optional supplementary testing and quality assurance and verification choices.

The material of construction includes standard base metal thermoelements, austenitic stainless steel or other corrosion resistant sheath material, and either magnesia (MgO) or alumina (Al2O3) insulation.

The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

2 The terms "metal sheathed thermocouple cable" or "cable" will be used to describe the subject description.

3 "Wire" is also used to describe "thermoelements."
