Can you bend an EGT sensor ?

Recommended Posts

I’ve got one egt sensor which is slightly touching my dump pipe where it exists the turbo,

 

can i I bend it out of the way just a tiny bit ?

 

i only wanna move it like 5mm, and considering they are long and skinny I can’t see any issue in doing so as the actual sensor is on the very tip exposed in the runner so it shouldn’t damage it ?

 

any advice would be much appreciated

Yes. Be very gentle. The TC sheath is very thin stainless (or inconel) and is packed with a dry mineral around the wires inside. You should be able to reshape it a little bit, so long as you don't end up crimping it. Try to support the sheath as much as you can (like you would if mandrel bending something) to prevent it folding.

i wouldn't just bend it from the ferrule, you will have a stress concentration and risk tearing or folding it.

 

I would remove it and bend it around something like a bit of pipe with a radius. this will make the bend more progressive instead of a "kink"

Awesome thanks for that fellas 

 

do you think pre heating it with a heat gun and then bending will help ?

Nope. It's stainless. It will retain its strength until ~1000°C.
