Questions & Answers

Does the temperature pipe clamp measure refrigerant temperatures when clamped to copper refrigerant lines

Use in HVAC applications
Asked by: Timmy3030
Yes. It us designed to read temperature of tubing temperature which is how refrigerant temperature is measured.

Does this clamp come with a case of any kind??

Asked by: MS21
No case is included. Comes blister-packed.
Answered by: MadDog
Date published: 2019-08-07

Can this be used with any brand meter or is it only usuable with klein multimeters

Asked by: Nate
Any temperature meter calibrated for Type K Thermocouples can be used. An adapter is provided for using the flat-bladed plug with banana plug instruments.

Klein Tools HVAC Temperature Pipe Clamp for Digital Multimeter is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Intended for making hands-free temperature measurements on piping from ¼ inch to 1-3/8 inch in diameter, especially HVAC applications, this clamp on thermocouple (Type K) is fabricated from molded thermoplastic parts, and incorporates a thermocouple sensor using polished metal contact pads in the jaws of a spring loaded clamp. The contact pads, which appear to be stainless steel (though slightly magnetic and not specifically identified in the manufacturer’s instruction card), have two “dimples” in their faces, ostensibly to ensure intimate contact with the surface being measured. The spring appears to be substantial, providing sufficient clamping force without requiring too much effort to install on the pipe under test. The integral 40 inch long cable is terminated in a standard flat-bladed thermocouple plug, but an adapter is provided if one has a meter requiring banana plug input. The cable insulation is not identified for high temperature exposure which may require care when in use. Additionally, where the cable is routed to the thermocouple in the jaw, the only mechanical protection provided where it can come into contact with the pipes being measured (or other surface) while installing the clamp is a piece of plastic sleeving. When put into use to measure the temperature of a pipe (a hot water pipe was used for testing) the results were four (4) to five (5) degrees F higher than two other Type K reference sensors (see photos). For comparison, the three sensors were placed in the cool air stream from an air conditioner. The clamp on was again reading higher than the reference probes ( 42 degrees F vs. 39-40 degrees F). It was observed that the response time of the sensor to temperature changes was far from instantaneous, requiring a wait for a steady state reading. This was possibly due to the mass surrounding the jaw inserts and the thermal properties of the (apparent) stainless steel jaw insert. With a reasonable amount of care (don’t just throw it into your tool bag) and an awareness of possible absolute inaccuracy this accessory will probably be adequate for many users. With the Klein name on it, one expects a more robust construction (coil-cord, silicone leads perhaps).

However, the blades on the plug are so thin that they do not hold firm when plugged in. When reading temperature, I have to use two hands and wiggle around the plug until it hits just the right spot to get a temperature reading. I gave 2 stars because when you finally fo get the right spot, thw clamp senses the temperature quickly. Otherwise it would have been 0 stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very inaccurate First off, the CL380 meter that I use this with works great. Second, this temp clamp I purchased to go with it reads about 12 degrees higher than the actual temp. Sometimes worse. I even tried using on an ice pack. It reads it at 68-70 degrees. I will be returning this for a new one and if that doesn't working. I will just return it and try something else.

Klein 69140 K Type Temperature Clamp for Digital Multi Meters – This Temperature clamp is nicely designed and far easier to use than the older contact temperature probes which had to held on a surface until the temperature was correctly calculated…At times the temperature has to be taken more than once if the technician had their fingers to close to the probe / bulb…I tested this temperature clamp measuring the temperature of bus bars in a distribution switch gear…I also gave the temperature clamp to a HVAC technician to check the temperature of copper refrigeration lines on heat pumps…The temperature clamp performed well and neither myself or the HVAC technician experienced any problems or issues…

I ordered the KLEIN CL310 400 amp digital clamp meter from HOME DEPOT awhile back and really like it small and does everything I need in a meter. It came with thermocouple and its very handy but I wanted to be able to do more hands free with the temperature setting and this pipe clamp is perfect. I can use it to service AC units and in heating for temperature drops thru valves and traps and setting water temperatures its a very handy add on to any digital meter with a temperature setting. Anyone who works on HVAC systems should have one a nice tool.

After having used a multimeter and temperature probe for many years to get line temperatures, this clamp is a magnificent upgrade. The ease of use and constant pressure of the clamp enable the probe contact to provide the required resistance for the multimeter to get an accurate temperature reading. The compact design make it easy to carry it in a small case or tool bag. A must have for technicians that require temperature monitoring.
