What is a thermocouple?

In this blogpost, we will tell you all about thermocouples. In a nutshell, a thermocouple is a thermoelectric device that uses a sensor to measures temperature. It consists of two dissimilar metal wires. They are joined together at one end. When heating or cooling this junction of metals, a voltage is released. This is called […]


What is a thermowell?

Thermowells can be seen as the protectors of temperature measurement. The thermowell provides the necessary protection to make sure the temperature measuring equipment can keep operating for as long as possible. Especially the temperature sensing parts inside the thermometer or sensor need to stay intact. The reason is that these parts are very sensitive and […]


What is a pt100?

A pt100 is a type of resistance thermometers. This name might reveal a lot already, because a resistance thermometer measures temperature using electrical resistance. So a pt100 resistance thermometer is one type of temperature sensor. A temperature sensor in general, provides for temperature measurement through an electrical signal. It measures the temperature or heat on […]


Quick guide: Thermowells

When a process is tough on your instrumentation, a thermowell might be a great option to protect the instrument from abrasion or corrosion. Thermowells are simple in the basis but there are some variations possible which I will try to explain today. Let’s start with the basics: What is a thermowell? A thermowell is in […]
