Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small J Type Thermocouple I was looking for a very small, J type thermocouple that would fit flat against a glass surface without an air gap. This self adhesive thermocouple, model SA1-J-72 met all of my needs and I was very relieved that it has 72" leads which is a big plus.

What is the life expectancy in a heat cycling application with 50 psi applied?

Asked by: Bob58
Thank you for your inquiry Bob58. These probes are not pressure rated and they have not been tested on pressurized environments. We do not recommend the use of this probe in pressure environments. Life expectancy for any of our of products depends on the frequency the product is used.
