Capillary Thermostat Switches

Original equipment manufacturers worldwide use temperature sensing products designed and manufactured by Senasys Inc. No matter which style or model you choose, all of the capillary thermostats operate using the same physics. A fluid is encapsulated in a metal and when the temperature changes the fluid either expands or contracts. This fluid change moves a diaphragm which is in touch with a snap action switch and either opens or closes a circuit.

Commercial food equipment manufacturer’s incorporate Senasys’ high quality, UL approved capillary thermostat switches and control. Other important applications are pool and spa, HVAC equipment and products for the home.

Bulb & Capillary Style Thermostats
Adjustable Capillary Thermostat Switch

The bulb is filled with a fluid that expands or contracts upon temperature change and is mounted in the material flow being sampled. It is typically larger in diameter. The capillary is a small tube that carries the fluid away from the bulb to the head. The head can be a diaphragm or bellow which moves with the changing temperatures… (read more)

Probe Style Thermostats

The bulb is a sealed metal tube filled with a fluid that expands or contracts upon temperature change. The probe is a bulb connected directly to a diaphragm or bellow. This is a portion of the bulb and capillary thermostat… (read more)

Probe Style Thermostats

ThermowellsLarge Copper Thermowell

An enclosed vessel, usually round, used in a secure location to protect a sensor or bulb from damage from pressure or material flow. It is designed to allow an instrument to be changed without draining the material being sampled.
