A thermal delay problem, found in steam cylinders used to test shrinkage in clothes, has been solved using a compact temperature (CPT) sensing switch, manufactured by Amot.

The CPT switch is used on a textile test instrument that produces steam for 90 minutes in a two hour refilling, heating and steam generating cycle. Time to produce the steam needs to be accurate – too long could result in the machine burning out, while too short means it is not operating efficiently.

The Amot switch does not suffer from thermal delay, as it is in direct contact with the water, and is not affected by the steel tank, which retains heat.

The switch has a wax element which is sensitive to temperature changes of +/-lsrC. The switch comes in different probe lengths and can be used with engines, compressors, heat exchangers and boilers.
