Thermal Barriers for Data Loggers (1000°C)

High-temperature thermal protection in environments up to 1000°C

Insulon® flasks provide thermal insulation and physical protection for data loggers in high temperature and high pressure environments. Insulon® advanced vacuum insulation with MLI delivers optimal thermal performance in environments up to 1000°C, allowing for extended dwell time and increased data collection. Rugged stainless steel construction keeps data loggers safe and secure while anti-rolling hexagonal end pieces prevent accidental falls and physical damage.

High-Performance Thermal Insulation

This chart details thermal performance of Insulon® vacuum flasks at four different environmental temperatures. Data shows the time until the data logger inside the flask reaches 140°C.

Protection Times for Insulon Flasks at 150, 200, 250, and 350 degrees Celsius
Testing was conducted for data loggers 24 mm in length and 18 mm in diameter that can withstand temperatures up to 140°C when left unprotected. A conventional oven was used for testing; oven and flask starting temperatures were 25°C.

Rugged Physical Protection

In addition to offering superior thermal performance to other options on the market, Insulon® vacuum flasks feature unique hexagonal end pieces that prevent rolling and allow the device to be positioned upright or on its side.

The data logger fits securely within an internal PTFE mass which can be cut to fit data loggers of different shapes and sizes. A wire feedthrough provides a path for the probe to reach the external environment. The top screws off for easy disassembly.
