K-Type Thermocouple CR-02 for Digital Kiln Thermometer
- 1 thermocouple with high temperature ceramic tube insulation -
- connector plate for wiring included -
-58 to 2498 °F (-50 to 1370 °C)
This is a heavy duty K-type Thermocouple for use in kiln and furnace applications. The probe is made from AWG 8 Gauge thermocouple wire and is rated for continuous use at very high temperatures up to 2500 °F Fahrenheit or 1370 °C Celsius. The k-type thermocouple is about 8.5 inch in total length, and the 6 insulation tubes are about 6.5 inch long. A connector plate for wiring the probe to your k-type thermometer or a temperature controller is included.
This type K Thermocouple Kiln Probe is made with 6 ceramic insulators, each about 1 inch long, and it allows you to adjust the probe length by removing insulator elements and shortening the wire to your exact requirement.
A connector cable to connect the thermocouple CR-02 to a digital K-type thermometer with miniature connector is now available: https://www.meter-depot.com/connector-hookup-cable-f-high-temperature-k-type-ceramic-thermocouple-sensor-cr4/
This k-type thermocouple is frequently used in ceramic ovens, kilns and furnaces, in pottery ovens, metal working, manufacturing and whenever you need to measure and control very high temperatures.

Wow so glad I found you guys and ordered this thermocouple I’m getting a more accurate temperature measurements for my glass kiln work.
bought 2 for monitoring upper and lower kiln temperatures, both sensors were within a degree of each other and performed as expected over a test fire. Shipping and receipt were as advertised - thanks!
Thermocouple for kiln Paragon
Thanks for offering a great option from the manufacturers overpriced replacement for high fire kiln. High quality, well packaged.
This item works perfect...had to replace my old probe..
CR-2, Type K, High Temp Thermocouple
Item is just as advertised. Very well made and robust design. I easily shortened the probe length with heavy duty wire cutters and removed 3 of the ceramic insulators to fit my application. Additionally, Carsten was very helpful and quick in responding to my questions on the basics of thermocouple wiring. A positive experience all around!
