PROBE FLAME PILOT
A pilot light is a small gas flame, usually natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas, which serves as an ignition source for a more powerful gas burner. In a pilot assembly, there is thermocouple sitting in the pilot light's flame. The electricity that is created from the flame contacting the thermocouple wire runs to a small electromagnetic valve and holds it open. If the pilot light blows out, the thermocouple quickly cools off. It stops generating electricity and the valve closes.
There are many types of probes used in restaurant equipment for the measurement of temperature, humidity, liquid level, ice level, product or ingredient levels and other critical operating limits and control points (HACCP). A probe is a small device, especially an electrode, used for measuring, testing, or sensing and obtaining information. Probes are commonly thin and oblong, and may be flexible. They provide data output to other components to control operation of the equipment.
