GTC-365 Product Manual – click to download (Note: Requires the Adobe Acrobat Reader)
The GTC-365 is a portable, battery powered thermocouple vacuum gauge which is supplied complete with 1.5 volt “D” cell battery, type GTC-036 thermocouple sensing tube and tube connecting cable.
- Measures from 0 – 5000 mTorr
- Battery operated – from 1.5V “D” cell supplied with gauge.
- Portable – rugged, wrap-around case with top handle which also serves as storage loop for sensor cable
- Easy to read – for either tube type, as identified on scale and position of selector switch; 0-5000 milliTorr with GTC-036 (supplied), 0-1000 milliTorr with GTC-004
- Sensor tube mounts with 3/8″ tube port or 1/8″ FPT. Adaptors available for other connections.
Principle of Operation
Employs a heater and dissimilar metal elements in a bonded junction to detect a temperature change. As the pressure in the sensor tube decreases, a rise in temperature occurs since less gas is present to dissipate the heater’s energy. The thermocouple senses the temperature change and a temperature dependent output is produced. This output is used to drive a micrometer scaled in pressure units.
Applications for the GTC-365 include vacuum measurements on vacuum-jacketed cryogenic transfer lines, storage carts, and transport vehicles. It is an ideal instrument for field use in the maintenance and servicing of vacuum related equipment. Manufacturers of tanks, lines, and storage facilities can also use the GTC-365 during the final assembly and evacuation of the vacuum vessel.
The GTC-065 accessory charging kit consists of a UL approved 120VAC, 50/60 Hz plug-in charger unit and a rechargeable alkaline “D” cell battery. The battery can be completely recharged in 8 to 10 hours. The gauge can be operated during recharging.
