  • RTD vs Thermocouple

    The resistance temperature detector (RTD) and thermocouple are two examples of devices used to monitor temperatures. Because their function is so similar, the two are often mistaken. Despite this, the RTD and thermocouple have distinct differences in their principle operation. An RTD uses a single piece of metal whose changes in ...

  • Classification and Development of Explosion-proof Temperature Transmitter

    Explosion-proof temperature transmitter indirectly measures temperature by measuring some parameters of the object with the change of temperature. A good explosion-proof temperature transmitter should have many conditions, such as wide temperature range, high precision, fast response, good reliability, low price and so on. There are two types of explosion-proof temperature transmitters: contact ...

  • Process gas mass flow controllers - An overview

    A mass How controller (MFC) is used 10 control the How of gases in a wide range of microelectronic processes. A well-designed MFC maintains a constant tlow within I percent of the full-scale flow, has a repeatability of 0.2 percent of full scale, and has a response time of 1 second to reach within 2 percent of the desired (command) flow, all of this is in response to any changes in command flow. ...

  • What are Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTD) ?

    Resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) are based on the principle that the electrical resistance of a metal increases as temperature increases a phenomenon known as thermal resistivity. Thus, a temperature measurement can be inferred by measuring the resistance of the RTD element. RTD’s are constructed of a resistive material with leads attached and usually placed into a protective sheath. ...

  • How to choose the right sensor technology RTD or thermocouple

    Over the years there have been purported advantages for using a T/C but most of these are of little relevance for industrial process applications. Although some T/Cs made with heavy gauge wire are quite rugged with a high tolerance for vibration, in general, an RTD properly selected and installed in a properly designed thermowell is suitable for challenging high velocity steam or liquid ...

  • Guide to Choosing the Right Temperature Sensors

    Temperature measurements are among the most common data logging applications found across a broad variety of industries including medical monitoring, cold chain integrity, machine monitoring, and many more. There are 4 main types of temperature sensors that are used with data loggers, and it can seem like a lengthy decision to find the right type. ...

  • How Does a Water Flow Meter Work?

    A flow meter works by measuring the amount of a gas, liquid or steam that passes through or around the flow meter sensors. While flow meter sensors work in many different ways, the end goal is the same: Deliver the most accurate and repeatable flow measurements for the specific application, whether for general research, process control or semiconductor processing. Flow meters measure either mass ...
