Thermowells are traditionally a circular cylinder installed into the piping to protect the temperature sensors from the flow. From an Emerson whitepaper, Thermowell Calculations: As a process fluid passes around the thermowell, low pressure vortices are created on the downstream side in laminar, turbulent, and transitional flow. The combination of stresses, generated by the static […]
