Selection and installation of the right thermocouple detector

In the industrial world, accurate temperature is a crucial factor to maintain the quality and safety of the production process. Thermocouples, temperature sensing devices that use the principle of the thermoelectric effect, are becoming a common choice for this task. In this article, we will discuss the selection and installation of the right thermocouple, and how United Heater can support your needs in this regard.

Selection of the Right Thermocouple

Selection of the right type of thermocouple depends on the application and work environment. Different types of thermocouples, such as Type K, Type J, Type R, Type S, Type B and RTD 100, RTD 500 and RTD 1000 have different characteristics in terms of temperature range, accuracy and resistance to certain environments. It is important to understand your application requirements carefully and select the appropriate thermocouple to ensure accurate and reliable monitoring results.

Proper Installation

Correct thermocouple installation is key to getting accurate temperature readings. Make sure that the thermocouple is properly installed and in direct contact with the surface you wish to measure the temperature of. Avoid interference from additional heat or extreme environmental conditions that could affect thermocouple performance. The use of additional protection such as a thermowell protective tube or cover can help extend the life and accuracy of the temperature sensor.
