Abstract:

This invention relates generally to temperature measuring devices incorporating thermocouples, and more particularly to a novel device for measuring in situ the temperature of an annular elastomeric seal during reciprocating cyclic motion of an assembly incorporating the seal. The present invention provides a novel annular elastomeric seal structure configures to measure the temperature of the seal during dynamic cycling at elevated temperature and pressure the seal structure includes a thermocouple embedded into the body of the elastomer of which the seal is comprised, and a protective sleeve, one end of which is formed to the annulus of the seal for containing and supporting the lead wires for the thermocouple.
