Do you have a process temperature to measure and cannot decide on a RTD or a Thermocouple? Use both...
Here at Thermometrics we have combined a RTD and a type K thermocouple in one convenient assembly. This sensor is manufactued with high temperature ceramic cement and fiberglass insulated wire, to provide the maximum operating range for the thermocouple.
Wireless Temperature Sensing RFID Network
With the Product Series 3000,the Total Cost of Ownership for active RFID solutions by 75%. In contrast with other active RFID solutions, intelligent tages are utilized - SmartPoints - in combination with low-cost energy-efficient Dynamic Wireless Sensor Network technology.Read more
Product Series 3000 provides the opportunity to CHECK, TRACK, and TRACE physical objects with a single, integrated solution:
CHECK: Closely monitor objects with any sensor.
TRACK: Coarsely locate objects within a Network.
TRACE: Store historical sensor data and object data in the tag
Resistance Temperature Detectors: Theorys and Standards.
With these general guidelines to the basic function, performance and recognized standards for RTDs, anyone can specify the right sensor for their particular application. Setting the specifications for any sensor or instrumen t can be a difficult process, and RTDs are no exception. No one needs can be expected to be expert in all fields, and frankly, no one needs to be. With thses general RTD guidelines, along with a little common sense and background information on the application, you will successfully detail the specifications of an RTD that will satisfy your requirements.
Cost of Good Quality: Prevention Costs
Prevention costs are costs of all activities that are designed to prevent poor quality from arising in products or services. Examples include the costs for:
•New product review
•Quality improvement team meetings
•Quality improvement projects
•Quality education and training
3A Sanitary Finish
3-A sanitary system accepted practices pertain to the sanitation aspects of equipment used to produce frozen desserts, egg, milk, cottage cheese, and similar food and dairy products. Included are Culinary Steam, Boiler Feed Water, Heat Exchangers, Transfer Station, Silo Tank, Atmospheric Pasteurizers, Pipeline Milking Systems and Feed Production.
Wireless Temperature Sensing
Wireless sensor networks are providing tremendous benefit for a number of industries. The ability to add remote sensing points, without the cost of running wires, results in numerous benefits including energy and material savings, process improvements, labor savings, and productivity increases.
Transmitters are scalable and provide an opportunity to increase resolution by spreading the predicted measurement range over the entire 4 - 20 mA range.That is, the entire 4 - 20 mA can be applied to a small temperature range measured at the sensor.Some transmitters are field programmable, while others have a specified range, and are programmed at the factory.
Ceramic Protection Tubes
Are used in applications where contamination from hostile environments or the cutting action of concentrated and direct flame impingement are factors. Such conditions usually require a noble metal thermocouple such as platinum and platinum alloys.
Resistance wire is electrical wire used for its property of electrical resistance. It is routinely used at high temperatures, so normally also has high melting point. Resistance wire is usually used for high-power resistors and heating elements, which produce heat used in electric heaters, electric ovens and toasters, and many other appliances.
Thermocouple Extension Wire
Wire that is used in a thermocouple from the point of sensing to the point of cold junction compensation (cjc end) where the signal is measured. A thermocouple is a sensor for measuring temperature, that consists of two dissimilar metals that are joined together at the sensing end. Different thermocouple types (e.g. J, K, T, E, etc) use different mixtures of metals in the wire.
