The installation rods facilitate the fitting of high-temperature thermocouples in flange nozzles.

They reduce the risk of breaking the ceramic protection tube due to impermissible thermal or mechanical loading during fitting.

In addition, the installation rods facilitate compliance with the recommended insertion speeds in accordance with DIN 43724, especially for heavy thermometers in both vertical and horizontal mounting positions.
