The Temperature Sensor that’s Tough and Reliable

TEMPTRON 2610APPLICATIONSBROCHUREREQUEST INFORMATION
TempTron 2610 is a temperature sensor that stands up to the abrasive wear in aggregate bins and mixers
Typical applications in bins and concrete mixer

TempTron temperature sensor and displayTempTron 2610 temperature sensor meets the need for temperature monitoring in concrete, asphalt and similar plants where normal sensors just do not last.   Use it for sand and aggregate bin temperature measurement.  It can also be used in concrete mixers for measurement of mixer temperature while the concrete mixes.  The TempTron 2610 temperature probe has built-in electronics, allowing it to transmit temperature readings for long distances with its 2-wire analog connection.  You can connect its standard process-control output directly to PLC and computer inputs.  In consequence, it allows you to set up both indicators and temperature control systems in a short time.

TempTron temperature sensor mounting detailsBin and Silo mount 2610-BM is a tube that can be welded or otherwise fastened through the wall of a bin, hopper or silo.  The sensor slides into the tube and protrudes slightly past the tube end to come into contact with the flowing material.  You can also position it inside the tube for extreme wear applications.  Once positioned, you should lock it in place with a screw through the outer tube.

Mixer mount 2610-MM is a short tube, intended to be welded onto the underside of the mixer body over a hole cut through the body.  The sensor protrudes through this hole and comes in contact with the mixer’s liner or wear plate, using heat transfer compound to make better thermal contact.  Alternatively, you can cut a hole through the liner plate and position the sensor tip in this hole so that it comes in contact with the material in the mixer.  In this application, the tip will see a lot of wear and consequently it is replaceable.

Liquid sensor 2610-LIQ is the bare sensor without protection.  The 1/4″ diameter (6 mm) probe is 61/2″ (165 mm) long and is suitable for installation in water lines or tanks.
