About Temp Tabs

TempTABs are an easy, cost effective method to monitor process temperatures and temperature uniformity in furnaces without the use of wires, electronics or multiple thermocouples. TempTABs are made from materials that exhibit controlled shrinkage over time. They measure the effect of temperature and time at temperature. TempTABs are currently available in five different temperature ranges:

TempTAB 300 can be used in the temperature range of 850-1,100°C (1562-2012°F).

TempTAB 400 can be used in the temperature range of 1,000-1,200°C (1,832-2,192°F)

TempTAB 600 can be used in the temperature range of 1,100-1,300°C (2012-2372°F).

TempTAB 650 can be used in the temperature range of 1,200-1,500°C (2192-2732°F).

TempTAB 700 can be used in the temperature range of 1,450-1,750°C (2,642-3,182°F)
