Product Specs

The Thermocouple welder TL-WELD is designed for sensor manufacturers for the production of commercial grade thermocouple junctions, and for users of large numbers of exposed junction thermocouples such as test and development laboratories where multipoint temperature sensing of test pieces is required. No special skills are needed and most people will be capable of producing quality work with minimal practice.

The instrument can be operated via the front panel or by using the foot-switch provided. In addition to thermocouple work, the TL-WELD welder is used in many other applications involving the joining of wires to each other and to metal surfaces. This model is suitable for welding wires up to 1.1 mm diameter and has an argon gas shield facility. A satisfactory thermocouple junction is produced without using argon, but where argon is available a momentary purge is automatically triggered immediately prior to the weld to give optimum weld integrity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, and does the job well We use this often, but not with the argon stream connected. Instead, a second person streams argon at the connector while the first makes the connection. Simpler and it works well.

Will it weld type C .020" wire?

Asked by: Blkscooby
Thank you for the inquiry. We do not have test data on tungsten wire above 0.003 inch which has been welded successfully. Please contact Omega Engineering Temperature Group for further information on tungsten wire welding. Best regards OMEGA

Will this welder work for Gauges smaller that 40 AWG. I have a 50 AWG platinum wires I need to weld, will it be able to do that ?

Asked by: Majid
Hi Majid, Thank you for the inquiry. In theory it is possible. But wires 36 awg and thinner are very difficult to take a successful weld. Normally a microscope is used to make these welds. Only a few skilled welders are able to make these welds with good success. Best regards, OMEGA

Hello how are you? I wanted to ask you if you can solder a PT100 RTD to cables such as the EXTT-3CU-26S. Thanks greetings!

Asked by: Hernan
There are no recommendations for Soldering with the TL-WELD as it is used to bond through welding the 2 dissimilar metals of a Thermocouple with no added materials.

How about B, R or S type?

Asked by: Abepickle
Hi Abepickle, Platinum wires types R,S & B can be welded , however the operator would need to fine tune the LEVEL and POWER settings. Best regards OMEGA
