FEP Probe Covers
Clear FEP Probe Covers developed by Tef Cap Industries are manufactured from chemically inert Teflon Tubing and are designed to be protective tubes for thermocouples, probes and costly RTD’s. Tef Cap has developed a proprietary method of sealing the ends of Heat Shrinkable Teflon FEP Tubing that results in a smooth, round, conforming, pinhole-free seal.
Heat Shrinkable FEP Probe Covers are supplied with a .010-inch thick wall, much thicker than conventional TFE, FEP or PFA spray coatings that are often only .001 inch thick. They are chemically inert and FDA compliant.
Encapsulation of costly stainless steel parts not only expands the life of the probe but increases its potential use in any corrosive environment.
Thermocouples, Probes, RTD’s, Thermometers and a variety of sensors all benefit from the protection offered by Fluoropolymer Probe Covers. Tef-Cap has extensive knowledge and equipment plus testing facilities to ensure that your probe is properly encapsulated and protected.
Our FEP Probe Covers are designed to slip over standard size probes and shrink when exposed to a heat source of approximately 300ºF. Specific shrinking instructions are available upon request. A typical probe encapsulation should take no more than two to three minutes.
If you are not comfortable with shrinking Tef-Cap Probe Covers on your instruments why not have Tef-Cap do the encapsulation for you. All probes can be encapsulated and returned on an expedited basis – generally no more than one or two days are required.
