Durex Industries manufactures custom engineered temperature sensors for thermocouple, resistance temperature detector (RTD), or thermistor applications. We have a wide variety of industrial temperature sensor products suited for use in the plastics industry, industrial processing, as well as sanitary temperature sensors for the food and beverage industry.Autoclave Thermocouples, G, K, PFA, TED, TEX, TF Control composite temperatures during cure. Quality verification of autoclave curing temperatures during bonding applications of aircraft components. applications of thermocouples in industries
Types of Thermocouples A thermocouple is a temperature sensor that is used to gauge temperatures in manufacturing, machining and scientific applications, as well as everyday appliances. A thermocouple can be useful to ensure surfaces, like steel or other metals or metal alloys, are appropriately heated for machining, or to gauge when
Based on the industry standards some combinations of alloys have become popular. Erected on the type of blend the cost convenience, availability, stability chemical properties, melting point and output thermocouples are available. Various types of thermocouples are used in various applications. peratures thermocouples made of wolframrhenium alloys are used. These thermocouples must be protected against contaminating, corrosive andor abrasive effects from the ambient conditions. A wide range of different designs with different protection tube materials is available in this respect. 2. Functional principle ofapplications of thermocouples in industries Thermocouples are used in process industry applications and the type is determined by the conditions.
Thermocouples are widely used in science and industry. Applications include temperature measurement for kilns, gas turbine exhaust, diesel engines, and other industrial processes. Thermocouples are also used in homes, offices and businesses as the temperature sensors in thermostats, and also as flame sensors in safety devices for applications of thermocouples in industries Thermocouple sensors from different suppliers may have a narrower range for a given type than the figures quoted below. Type K (270 to 1370C 454 to 2498F) The Type K is a 'general purpose' thermocouple with a wide temperature range. With a variety of probe types available, it is suitable for use across many industries and processes. Application of thermocouples WIKA data sheet IN 00. 23 WIKA data sheet IN 00. 23 Page 1 of 13 Technical information In industrial electrical temperature measurement, two groups of sensors are commonly used: Resistance temperature detectors (RTD) Thermocouples (TC) Both sensor types have their advantages and (usually less than 50. 00) Most of the thermocouples are custom made with lead times of 24hrs if needed. Other elements in a closed loop heating cycle: temperature controller; heating element; electrical power switching A couple important things: Thermocouples measure their own temperature.
