Regardless of whether you are an engineer or an electrician, you must already be familiar with the term “heat shrink tubing” and ” Probe Covers “. In fact, there is also a high possibility that you’ve come in contact with them and know how they work.

Initially, heat shrinkable tubes were used to safeguard electrical wires only. But, over time, their efficacy extended to a wide spectrum of industrial and commercial applications. A number of industries now rely on PFA tubing to prevent fire and lessen energy dissipation, and in the process, cut their manufacturing costs.

Read on if you are interested in getting to know more about the benefits of heat shrink tubing.

1.      They can resist high temperatures.

Heat shrink tubes can withstand extreme temperatures and hence, can work under harsh chemical conditions which can melt other lesser materials. With a melting point as high 320°C and a freezing point as low as –268.15°C, these tubes are able towithstandall freezing cold and blistering hot chemical environments.

2.      They can withstand abrasion.

Fortunately, heat shrink tubes are added to industrial products so as to enhance their resistance to accidental damages and physical abuse.

3.      Their end caps protect the product.

Assuming that you are connected to the field of science in one way or another, it’s understood that cutting a wire to resize or rework its shape according to the “electrical need” is something you’ve done time and time again.

This goes without saying that if you fail to insulate the wire properly, the cut can cause trouble.

Thankfully, with encapsulating heat shrink tubes, you need no longer worry about overheating or shorting of circuits. Considering safety is your topmost priority, heat shrink tubing offers high performance with utmost protection.

 

Heat Shrinkable FEP & PFA Probe Covers

Probe covers serve as an end cap plug for the expensive glass or metallic probes used in high-temperature or corrosive processes.

Since these parts are placed in hard-to-access positions in a circuit, and reside in a gas or liquid stream, encapsulating them with heat-shrinkable FEP or PFA covers increases their longevity.

This is mainly because of the chemical inertness and excellent lubricating, and high electrical and thermal resistance properties that these fluoropolymer tubes have to offer.

The FEP and PFA probe covers engineered at Tef-Cap Industries act as protective shields  for a number of industrial products such as probes, thermocouples, resistance temperature detectors (RTDs), thermometers and assorted sensors. In corrosive environments, these probe covers create an impenetrable barrier between the caustic chemicals and expensive sensing devices.
