How can I position my PTFE Pt100 deep in the vessel without it touching the stirrer shaft?

For jacketed lab reactors with angled lid sockets (such as Reactor-Ready), you should bend the PTFE Pt100 temperature probe so that it doesn’t come into contact with the stirrer shaft and the tip is in the optimum position, as shown below.

Reactor Ready bent PT100

The probe can be bent by up to 45° without issue.

Please make sure the section of the Pt100 secured in the adapter (in the socket) is straight not bent, to ensure a good seal.
