Installation andOperating InstructionsSpring-Loaded MgO Thermocouple/Thermowell Assemblies withConnection Heads (GP04, XP04,XP06)Choosing the right temperature sensor for each application is critical, but selection of the correct sensor doesnot guarantee flawless function and reliable results if the unit(s) is not installed and operated properly. Thefollowing instructions will help ensure that the sensor(s) perform as expected.Notice: The information provided in this document constitutes recommended procedures based onexperience with stated equipment and materials in specific conditions. This information does not guaranteesatisfactory results. These installation and operating instructions are recommendations only, and Pyromationassumes no liability for any resulting outcomes. Pyromation sales and engineering personnel are availableto assist in determining the best sensor assemblies for each application, however, the user is obligated toultimately verify the suitability of Pyromation’s products and the use of these procedures for each purpose.Pyromation cannot be held responsible for damages caused by non-compliance with the recommendedinstructions or the improper use of the devices described within this document.Safety Warning: The devices and procedures referenced in this document incorporate the use ofelectricity at potentially lethal levels. Care should be taken to protect all personnel involved with installationand operation of the devices mentioned in this document. Follow all safety instructions and heed all warnings.Symbols: Danger-Electric Hazard – risk to health/life Warning – Dangerous situation presents risk of injury/death Caution – Possible dangerous situation presents risk of minor injury.Page 2 of 8 2014 Pyromation, Inc.Phone (260) 484-2580 FAX (260) 482-6805 or (800) 837-6805 www.pyromation.com

Installation andOperating InstructionsSSpring-Loaded MgO Thermocouple/Thermowell Assemblies withConnection Heads (GP04, XP04,XP06)1/4"Device(s) and System: The Pyromation Spring-Loaded MgO Thermocouple assemblies covered in thisdocument (series GP04, XP04 and XP06) are sensors built to measure temperature in a variety of processapplications. The XP04 and XP06 series assemblies are FM and CSA approved for use in hazardouslocations within the U.S. and Canada. The sensor assemblies should be handled with care to avoid causingany damage that might impair their ability to function properly. These sensors are designed with a probe thatis spring-loaded, allowing for ¼” to ½” compression when inserted into a pressurized protective vessel called athermowell. Thermowell construction is related to the desired immersion length as well as temperature, pressure, chemical/physical composition and flow speed of the medium being measured.1/4"SEAUFOR:NO:Personnel/Qualifications: The commissioning, installationSPECand maintenanceof devices described inthis document must be handled by personnel authorized by the plant operator/organization.

Installation andOperating InstructionsSpring-Loaded MgO Thermocouple/Thermowell Assemblies withConnection Heads (GP04, XP04,XP06)Installation Instructions:Consult plant schematics to understand the temperature measurement system’s connection to the facilityand total overall operation.Make sure that the ambient temperature range in the area of the application is appropriate for the sensorbeing installed – which are the limits related to the sensor wire termination and associated enclosure.Disconnect, isolate or cut power from the area where targeted installation is to take place.Ensure that process piping or container is clear of material at the area of installation and that no pressure ispresent.Check to make sure the sensor assembly(s) have suffered no damage in shipment and are complete.Check to make sure the probe of the MgO spring-loaded thermocouple will compress ¼” – ½” to ensurecontact with the bottom of the thermowell.Locate the port in the wall of the process pipe, tank, furnace or container in which the thermowell/assemblyshould be installed.There are generally four types of thermowell connections:Threaded Connection Check to make sure the sensor assembly’s threads match the threads ofthe process fitting (e.g. ½”, ¾”, NPT thread, straight thread, metric thread)and that the thermowell material matches the process piping/containermaterial (to avoid galvanic reactions between dissimilar materials, whichcan lead to accelerated corrosion). Make sure the process fitting meets the maximum specified processpressure requirements. Seal the extension nipples with TFE tape. If the conduit port of the connection head of the sensor assembly mustmatch up to rigid conduit pipe, make sure the unit has a union fitting,which will allow for adjustments (not necessary if using flexible conduit). When installing a threaded thermowell sensor assembly, connect the unitto the process fitting. Tighten to fitting using recommended torque (e.g.54 ft-lbs for ½” NPT; 78 ft.-lbs. for ¾” NPT or 1.5 – 3.0 turns past fingertight).SECTION A-A Page 4 of 8 B526101 Phone (260) 482-6805 or (800) 837-6805 www.pyromation.com (260) 484-2580 FAX 2014 Pyromation, Inc.
