Тhermal fuses are essentially unrecoverable temperature fuse, which is made of a ball of a fusible material and a spring. After reaching the critical temperature of termal fuse, the pellet melts and activates the spring which mechanically opens the contacts and interrupt the circuit.
They are widely used in household appliances mainly related to high temperature levels such as hair dryers, hair curlers, coffee makers, irons and more.
Termal fuse is an important passive element that protects your electric equipment from overheating and fire. They do not respond to voltage peaks and are designed to actuate the temperature. Often, thermo fuses are installed in parallel with a varistor in order to break the circuit when the varistor start working.
