Thermoprobe Wire Protection
« on: July 07, 2015, 09:26:45 am »
Hey All -

I was hoping someone out there may have some experience with this and could offer a suggestion/point in the right direction. I currently have a single tier/3 burner system (Brutus 10) with wires that plug into thermowells near the output of each kettle. On more than one occasion, I've gotten the thermoprobe wires too close to the heat and ended up melting part of the rubber/pvc insulation protecting the wire. To solve the problem, I was thinking about adding some sort of wire/cable protection around each thermoprobe wire.

I found this page on McMaster-Carr and it appears to be exactly what I need ... I'm just not sure which one to get:  www.mcmaster.com/#standard-cable-sleeving/=xy72ab

Any suggestions?  Anyone with personal experience?  I'd appreciate any input. Thanks in advance.
