Abstract : A roller bearing hot box sensor utilizing a metallic temperature sensitive elongated wire element. The wire element contacts at temperatures in the range of about 125 F to about 225 F so that when the contraction movement of the wire is attached to a connector means that operates a firing pin. Movement of the wire element initiates an electrical battery or other power source and thereby transmits electrical current to a signaling device, that gives a signal. (Author)
