Unlike pressure and flow measurement, temperature measurement can be much more complex given what is being measured. Fluids have thermal inertia characteristics which determine their temperature rate of change. In a Process Heating article, Instrumentation Solves Temperature Measurement and Control Problems, Emerson’s Shane Hale describes some of these challenges and how manufacturers and producers are […]

One quick example of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in action is temperature measurement. Traditionally, these measurements included piping or vessel penetrations, thermowells installed, RTD or thermocouple sensing elements and transmitters, wiring/fittings/junction boxes/conduit/cable trays/etc., marshalling panels and connections in the control system I/O. For critical temperature measurement and control this is still very important […]
