How do you secure the temperature sensor (thermistor) and the heater cartridge in the Mosquito™ Hot Block?
Both are secured with Boron Nitride (BN) Paste. BN paste is required on the temperature sensor (thermistor) for accurate measurement. BN paste is also desirable on the heater cartridge and nozzle threads. The retaining screws on either end of the hot block are safety features, intended to prevent the heater and thermistor from pulling out. Please refer to the Mosquito Installation Instructions for more details. To learn how to properly use Boron Nitride Paste, please see this article here.
