Workability is the major selection factor: Type K thermocouples are designed for inert atmospheres and if the applications are associated with the after effects of oxidizing then Type K Chromel and Alumel thermocouples are the best bet.
The thermocouples used are of K type, chromel (+), alumel (-) alumel, and the measurement field are -50 .
As such, we are developing connectors under similar assumptions with more exotic materials, such as chromel, alumel, inconel, tellurium, and composites for thermal coupling through a contact system.
A 4-probe measurement geometry was used with chromel or platinum lead wires attached to the ends of the samples and Type K (Type M8 and L) or R(Type M10) thermocouple probes attached to the sides.
Specific heat of alumel and chromel alloys near this magnetic transitions.
Twenty-five 30 gauge Chromel Alumel thermocouples (Omega Engineering, Stamford, Connecticut, USA) connected to two underground Campbell CR10 data loggers (Campbell Scientific, North Logan, Utah, USA) were placed horizontally under the litter layer at the mineral soil surface in the first 13 transect plots extending in each direction from the base of the L.
A line of hermetic headers, connectors, and feedthroughs uses pins made of Alumel, Chromel or Copper.
