Fenwal Controls' Series 08 Precision Snap Disc Thermostats Now Globally Sourced

Ashland, MA - Commercial and industrial appliance and equipment manufacturers must meet increasingly challenging design-to-cost goals to successfully launch new products. To meet this challenge, Fenwal Controls, a leading manufacturer of automatic gas ignition and temperature controls, offers global manufacture of its Series 08 Precision Snap Disc Thermostats while maintaining full product responsibility including design, performance, quality and supply chain logistics under the Fenwal® brand at their Massachusetts plant. Fenwal's Series 08 Precision Snap Disc Thermostats are available as hermetically sealed stainless steel probes (Series 08-8X) or as surface mounting (Series 08-0X) with calibrated temperature settings from 35 to 550ºF (2 to 288°C). These rugged devices feature a precise and repeatable snap-acting bimetallic disc as the actuating element and have silver contacts to assure long life. They are individually calibrated to meet both thermal and electrical characteristics. Fenwal's Precision Snap Disc probe and surface mounting styles meet MIL-STD-202D and MIL-STD-213B vibration and shock requirements. The all-welded stainless steel probes (Series 08-8X) and epoxy sealed surface mounts (Series 08-0X), constructed with Ryton or ceramic bases and stainless steel caps, can withstand harsh and high temperature environments. Ease-of-installation is achieved with a variety of terminal options, such as lead wires (any length), solder lugs, wiring eyelets, and quick-connect style terminals. All devices are RoHS and CE Compliant, CSA Certified, and UL 873 Component Recognized. Applications range from diesel engines, air and refrigeration compressors, hydraulic systems, and industrial processing equipment to medical and commercial food equipment.
