Our thermal protective tubes serve as an electrical, thermal or mechanical insulator for your end product or application. We offer three UL Thermal Class insulations types for our insulation sleeves and insulation caps including Class B, F and H.
Paramount Tube thermal protectors are commonly made using:
- PET Film
- Kapton/Polyimide Film
- A combination of the above materials
This type of specialty thermal tubing is most commonly used to insulate metallic cut-outs in electric motors. Benefits include:
- Reduces the heat transfer rate
- Reduces vibrations, noise and wear
- Expansible insulation tube that is able to return to its initial state after expansion
Sensors, Switches, Probes
Thermal protectors are often used in sensors, switches and probes that serve as an electrical safety device that interrupts the protected product’s electric current when heated to a specific temperature. When the critical temperature is reached, the sensor, switch or probe typically opens the circuit to cut off current and preserve the device it protects.
