Abstract : Described is an improved instrumentation coupling for use in a conduit system carrying molten explosive material in a continuous melt-pour process. The instrumentation flange assembly comprises a pair of self-aligning pipe flanges fixedly connected to a specially designed body housing member for holding temperature and pressure sensors in the molten explosive without leakage of explosive material from the conduit, and for enabling quick removal of the sensors for replacement or calibration purposes.
