Frequently Asked Questions About Temperature Transmitters
Q: How does a temperature transmitter work?
A temperature transmitter (sensor) is an electronic temperature gauge. The temperature transmitter gives an electronic output signal which can be used on a digital display or controller to display temperature.
Q: How do I choose a temperature transmitter?
To help determine the best transmitter for your application, knowing the following properties will be useful:
- The temperature range needed to be measured
- Output signal required (mA, Voltage)
- Required thread
- Stem length
- Thermowell (if required)
Q: What is a thermowell?
A thermowell is a cylindrical fitting that fits over the temperature stem. The thermowell is used to protect the transmitter stem from processes that may be corrosive or abrasive. The application could also be under high pressure.
Q: When should I use a thermowell?
Whenever a temperature transmitter (sensor) is to be inserted into a process where corrosion, pressure, or abrasion may be involved. In addition, thermowells allow for a defective instrument to be removed without shutting down or draining the process.
