Product Description


Type 2KS / 2KD thermostats are temperature control devices for controlling the temperature of refrigerated or air conditioned spaces. These devices cut off the compressor motor when the temperature falls to a preset value and restart the compressor when the temperature rises by a fixed value. The cut off temperature can be adjusted by turning the knob within specified limits. 2KS / 2KD thermostats are very compact in size. All metallic patrs are either non corrosive in nature Stainless steel) or Zinc plated.

2KS / 2KD utilize a seamless bellows and capillary as the sensing element. This sensing element is filled with suitable charge. The pressure of the charge in this sensing element changes with the changes in temperature and is utilized to operate an electrical contact system. The electric contact system is snap acting type which reduces wear and enhances life of the thermostat.
