MI thermocouples

MI thermocouples

MI thermocouples

Has anyone had dealings with so called mineral insulated & sheathed (Inox/ss/inconel)thermocouple starightening machines.
These thermocouples are used on elevated flares in refineries/booms on rigs, and are pushed in to guide tubes. The straightening machine supplied by a company called ESCO, but I am unable to find anything of use on internet.
Basically, I have the machine running, but it doesn't straighten very well the MI sheathed t/c which is 245ft long & 3/16" diameter. I am unable to get all the t/c in to the sheath.
Any ideas?
