Dear valued customer,
Type T thermocouples are most accurate in the temperature
range of -200 to 400°C, providing more accurate, repeatable
results in the validation environment.
Calibrate sensors before your validation studies. This will
eliminate any hot junction conformity errors. Then verify them
after the study is complete.
Use one continuous wire length — no connectors or extension
wires. Use the highest quality wire available — high purity wire
is less prone to errors from temperature gradients that exist in
the validation test (but are not present in sensor calibration).
Use stranded wire rather than solid wire to minimize material
degradation errors due to cold working.

Thermocouples Overview
Quality Assurance
Kaye thermocouple wire is manufactured with
the highest purity and uniformity available to the
industry. Quality control and testing of every wire
spool and thermocouple probe ensures consistent
measurement results. Each spool of wire includes a
Certificate of Conformance — your guarantee that
it meets the accuracy specifications. Each Teflon®
Thermocouple is leakage vacuum tested.
Which Costs More: Material or Time?
While quality wire does cost more, the cost of
unnecessarily repeating a single validation study far
exceeds the price of the wire (time, lost productivity,
equipment downtime). Without understanding the
effects of cold working, you could lose a validation
study and not know why. And the risk of it happening
again is still present. This could explain why many
companies discard their wire after only a few studies.
In any case, specifying high-purity wire and handling
your sensors more carefully is always a good
practice, and will result in more accurate process
measurement.
Often while using more than 10 thermocouples
in a qualification run, it is more than helpful if the
thermocouples are labeled close to the tip and
at the SIM end. Kaye is offering kits to label the
High-Accuracy Type “T”
Thermocouple Wire
As an integral component of high-accuracy
measurement systems, thermocouple wire is subject
to severe conditions and, often, not-so-delicate
handling. Repeated bending, or cold working, of a
thermocouple can generate stress and distortion
of the material crystalline structure, resulting in
significant potential for measurement error. Kaye
thermocouple wire is a multi-strand construction
using wire of the highest purity and uniformity
available, thus minimizing, if not eliminating,
measurement error resulting from cold working and
raw material inconsistencies. Other commercially
available copper/contantan thermocouple wires
carry a standard grade accuracy rating of 0.75% at
121° C. For critical process validation applications,
Kaye Ultra-Premium wire is the proven standard,
delivering 0.21% accuracy (almost four times more
accurate than standard wire). Kaye thermocouple
wire is available in three- and seven-strand
configurations with clear Teflon® insulation. The 3strand wire is intended for applications where space
is limited, or where the wire must be fed through very
narrow openings. The Teflon® coated thermocouple
wire is rated for continuous use at 200° C with a
peak rating of 260° C, while our Kapton® insulated
wire will withstand service to 350° C.
Teflon® Tips Extend Thermocouple
Life
Thermocouples yourself or you can also order
already pre-labeled thermocouples from Kaye.
We also offer the pre-wiring to new SIMs – when you
order new TC and SIMs at the same time.

Encapsulating the sensor tip with dual shrink Teflon®
tubing will extend the life of your thermocouple. A
sealed tip guards against moisture being pulled
along the wire, thus minimizing oxidation and
doubling the life of your probe (saving you the cost
and time of buying and calibrating replacement
sensors). Kaye thermocouple wire is a multistrand construction using wire of the highest purity
and uniformity available, thus minimizing, if not
eliminating, measurement error resulting from cold
working and raw material inconsistencies.
Thermocouples for Autoclaves
Ultra-Premium Type T Teflon®
Insulated Thermocouples
Each Teflon® Thermocouple is leakage vacuum
tested and verified for accuracy @ 40°C and 121°C.
For critical process validation applications, Kaye
Ultra-Premium wire is the proven standard,
delivering 0.21% accuracy (almost four times more
accurate than standard wire).
The Teflon® coated thermocouple wire is rated for
continuous use from -100°C up to 200° C with a
peak rating of 260° C. Encapsulating the sensor tip
with dual shrink Teflon® tubing will extend the life of
this thermocouple.
A sealed tip guards against moisture being pulled
into the wire, thus minimizing oxidation and doubling
the life of your probe. Available as 3- and 7-stranded
thermocouple.

USB Upgrade for Kaye
Validator®
Some older Validators are still using a floppy
drive to store data or an RS-232 serial Port for
communication with a Laptop. Floppies are basically
not available anymore and new laptops are delivered
with USB ports only.
So an upgrade of older Validators is required to stay
up to date with current computer and storage media
•Add USB communication to your Validator ® 2000
•Add USB drive so data is stored in the future not
on floppy any more but on USB stick – this will
make data store more secure, easy and much
better to be transferred to the PC
•Upgrade will also allow using current software
with the Validator ® which supports WIN7 and 64

discrete modules, each covering a single aspect of
executing a thermal validation study using the
Kaye Validator®.
The training program simulates the Kaye Validator®
software step-by-step and lets you try the more
complex procedures on your own. Subject matter
is presented using detailed audio and product
simulations, and hands-on exercises reinforce key
elements. Assessments at the end of each module
confirm subject mastery, and certificate is provided
upon Successful course completion.

•Running in Standalone mode
Upon order confirmation, you will receive an e-mail
with a unique user ID and password that will provide
access to the online training program.
User ID and password combinations are valid
through successful completion of the final module,
but do expire after ninety days. Once all module
assessments are passed, a certificate of completion
will be forwarded to the registrant.
