Thermocouple Type R and Type S Technical DetailsThermocouple Type B Technical Details
Type R and S thermocouples are the most popular rare metal thermocouple types. They are very similar in conductor construction. The main difference is that Type R is more popular in th UK whereas Type S is more popular in Europe. As the cost of Platinum and Rhodium is high in comparison to base metal thermocouples, Type R & Type S wire can be recovered and recycled from failed thermocouples. The negative leg on a Type R or S thermocouple is pure platinum and the positive leg is platinum / rhodium.Type B has a very high maximum temperature. For short periods it can be used to measure temperatures up to 1850°C, with up to 1700°C being measured under continuous operation. One quirk of Type B thermocouples is that its output doesn't change between 0 and 42°C meaning that it is unsuitable for measuring temperatures near this range. We recommend Type B thermocouples are only used for measuring above 200°C.
