Choosing a Thermometer
When selecting a thermometer, you need to consider a variety of factors. The temperature range your thermometer will need to measure and the medium used in your process are first up. Next, you need to consider the accuracy of the thermometer, as well as the safety and health requirements of your facility. Finally, you should think about the cost of the thermometer, along with the physical space you have to use it in, and your system’s connection types. Different thermometers have differing sensing elements, which show the process temperature. Several types are listed below:
This is the most simple type of device, which comes with our industrial and sub thermometers. As the medium is heated or cooled, the spirit within the tube rises in a linear fashion, while the dial displays the corresponding temperature.
These thermometers contain a known amount of a particular type of gas, which is contained within a bulb chamber and capillary. As the gas expands or contracts, it pushes a pointer, which in turn indicates the temperature.
This type of device is in fact two separate metal strips that are connected and spiraled within the thermometer case. As the medium is cooled or heated, the metals expand at different rates, which causes the strip to coil or uncoil, moving a pointer that indicates the temperature.
-Electronic Thermometers, Thermocouples, and Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs)
These devices all work through a metal’s resistance and conductivity to produce a signal, which can then be interpreted as a temperature reading.
Our bimetal thermometer uses a bimetallic sensing element and may be utilized in a wide variety of applications. Dials are available in sizes ranging from 1″ to 5″ and connections can be below, on the back, or adjustable on the back, according to your requirements. This thermometer is constructed from 300 series stainless steel. It features a hermetic seal, which prevents damage to internal parts from moisture and lens fogging. It is manufactured to ASME B40.1 Grade A standards, and, as such, provides 1% full-scale accuracy.
Appropriate for a variety of HVAC applications, this thermometer includes a spirit-filled, tubed element. It features a 5″ aluminum scale with black figures. It comes with a glass lens, a blue liquid-filled tube, and a gray ABS case. Our submarine thermometer is available with 2″ nominal stem length for a 3 1/4″ OA thermowell or 4″ nominal stem length for a 5 1/4″ OA thermowell.
