                                We are using this thermometer in the return line of a solar hot water collector and it is working just fine. It was flawless from the start and continues to be flawless.

                                            Great for monitoring temps generally, but not accurate enough for calculating BTU/H transfer rates and things.

                                                Mick, The gauge itself is unaffected by pressure as it simply slides into the snap well. The snapwell supplied is rated for 6 bar or 87 psi. You may be able to get a snap well rated for a higher pressure. Dan

                                                If I remember correctly, this temp gauge sits in a dry well. The dry well is a brass sweat well, or an NPT well. The gauge itself isn't subject to any system pressure. I say "if I remember correctly" since I've used different manufacturers and different products over the years. I hope this helped.

                                                The well is independent of the actual temperature gauge so the pressure in
                                                the system does not affect the gauge (gauge snaps in and out of the well).
                                                The well is designed for normal working pressures of most residential water
                                                systems (schedule 40 pipe, pex, type L or M copper) and I would suspect can
                                                take much higher pressures but I do not know what that is. If thicker wall
                                                pipe like schedule 80 is used and the system is to be tested with nitrogen
                                                due to extremely high pressures then I can't answer the question.

                                              you guys are confusing me. I want to put these probes in a 3/4" threaded tee. Will a 3/4 x 3/4 x 1/2 tee put the probe in the stream or will it hit the back of the tee. If it hits the back of the tee could I use 3/4 x 3/4 x 3/4 tee with a 3/4-1/2 bushing?

                                                The threaded insert that comes with these thermometers will hit the back of a 3/4 X 3/4 X 1/2 inch tee if using the side port. Also, they're pretty think and tend to add a lot of head to the system when installed like that, so even if you use a bushing and a 3/4 x 3/4 X 3/4 tee, you may want to space it out a little to prevent any blockage in the tee.  
                                                I use these a lot in hydronic furnace installs and typically use copper tee's and a short pipe with a threaded female coupler at the end. I still get great temp readings and the well doesn't block the water flow.
                                                 
                                                Hope this helps.

                                                It would bottom out in the T on a 3/4" x 3/4" x 1/2". The 3/4" x 3/4" x
                                                3/4" would work. You would need to have the flow make the 90 degree turn
                                                and the probe would need enough pipe connected to the T to go straight
                                                through one end and out the other.

                                              How long is the probe? I am looking for the shortest temp/pressure gauge you have. Thanks.

                                                The probe is 1" long starting from the end of the male thread.

                                                A:

                                                Usually installed in the outlet of a tee. The fitting used depends on the specific location in the piping. If the tee is 3/4-3/4-3/4, use a 1/2"fpt x 3/4"cu threaded adapter or a 1/2"fpt x 3/4" cu fitting adapter. The object is to allow the tip of the stem on the well to extend into the fluid flow path but not touch the wall of the fitting. Other options are available, including a 3/4" cu x fpt threaded adapter with a 3/4" x 1/2" threaded brass bushing or a 1/2" fpt x 3/4" face bushing installed directly into the tee fitting. As long as the tip of the well is in the fluid flow path, the assembly doesn't leak and can be taken apart for future replacement or service, the thermometer will do it's job.

                                                You would need a 3/4 to 1/2 to 3/4 copper T with a sweat 1/2" threaded female piece. The gauge will thread right in. You will need some Teflon tape for your threads as well.

                                                We would recommend parts CP12-12 and TB12-12-08. Without a bushing, the probe on the thermometer would be too long to fit in a tee.

                                                A couple options:
                                                1. Install this thermometer into a 3/4"x1/2" Copper x Female Adapter next to a 3/4" Tee on the line to monitor temperature. This method isn't the most accurate as it places the thermometer too far from main line.
                                                 
                                                2. Install this thermometer into a 1/2" FTG x Female Street Adapter which is soldered into a 3/4" x 3/4" x 1/2" tee on the line to monitor.  This is the preffered method as it places the thermowell of the thermometer directly into the flow of the 3/4" copper line.
