Measuring and controlling temperature can the most important parameter in many production processes. It’s not only the temperature sensors that are important, but how they are protected by thermowells. Wikipedia has a good definition of what thermowells are: Thermowells are tubular fittings used to protect temperature sensors installed in industrial processes. A thermowell consists of […]

Temperature measurement is critical in many production and manufacturing processes. It’s not only important to pick the right measurement technology such as thermocouples or RTDs, it’s also important to have the right thermowell. If you’ve taken advantage of getting a no-cost copy of The Engineer’s Guide to Temperature Measurement, you may have read section 3.3 […]

A few weeks ago, I highlighted the issue of resonance and thermowells in a post, New Thermowell Calculations Help Avoid Damaging Resonance. Thermowells are the circular cylinder installed like a cantilever into process piping. The temperature sensor goes into the thermowell, to be able to measure the temperature of the fluid in the pipe without […]
