Lake Shore provides a range of temperature sensors in packages that facilitate mounting in tight areas. However, for some applications, particularly if the sensors must be immersed in liquid, more must be done to protect the sensor circuitry.
A cryogenic temperature probe is the best choice for these applications. Encased within the stainless steel thermowell fixture, the sensor may function as intended, unaffected by high pressure, and sealed to protect electrical components and wiring from fluids and other elements.
Temperature Probe Features
- Stainless steel-encased probes offer extremely reliable sensor performance in a thermowell or direct cryogen contact
- It can be configured with several sensor types, including Cernox® for superior temperature performance from room temperature down to 4 K (−269.15 °C) and below
- Highly customizable to the specific application
- Ideal for temperature measurements in fluid containers and tanks
- Thin-walled probe tubing decreases thermal lag and heat leaks from outside of the measurement space
- Full three-year standard warranty
Lake Shore temperature probes are suited for thermometry applications that necessitate interior measurements. These include:
- Cryostats and cryogenic liquid flow meters
- Fluid containers, tanks, and pipes
- Other liquid storage systems

Lake Shore temperature probes are made-to-order with a variety of configuration options. These include:
- Multiple sensor types, including the popular Cernox RTDs and DT-670 diodes
- Various mounting adapters suitable for either positive or negative pressures if needed
- Either 1/8 inch or 1/4 inch stem diameter in lengths up to 0.71 m (28 inches) is standard
- Numerous connectivity options, including wire lengths and types, as well as different terminating connectors for direct connection to Lake Shore temperature instruments or third-party equipment
