The design of these exhaust gas thermocouples utilizes a specialized quick disconnect that reduces replacement time from hours to minutes along with a hermetic seal of the probe that allows complete submersion during wash down. The 372A2221 Pxxx thermocouple joins a suite of OEM-qualified products that AMETEK produces for GE and other turbine engine manufacturers for heavy-duty frame and aero-derivative gas turbines. GE-qualified products for these applications include exhaust gas thermocouples, wheelspace thermocouples, compressor discharge probes, radiation shields, accelerometers, pressure probes, cables, harnesses and pressure transmitters.
