  • Thermocouples: Temperature Sensory for the 21st Century and Beyond

    by Breana Cronk, IQS Editor In 1821, Thomas Johann Seebeck discovered thermo-electricity and developed the preliminary design for thermocouples. At this time, the idea of electricity in every home was a stretch and the NASA space program was a complete work of fiction. Nearly two hundred years later, thermocouples can be found in virtually every industrial, commercial and residential building. Simple in design, thermocouples are constructed of two distinct metal wires joined together. If the temperatures changes, the voltage readout also changes and alerts users to the difference. In some...

  • Why You Should Use Thermocouples

    Temperature Sensors A thermocouple is a small piece of wire made up of two separate metals. Each thermocouple is made of different metals, depending on the use for the heat sensor. The purpose of a thermocouple is to detect the heat of a liquid or solid by measuring the heat output in electrical currents. Different metal combinations can detect the heat levels in different objects. Because of their versatility, thermocouples have use in a variety of industries from oil purifying to popsicle making. To use a thermocouple, all an operator...

    Efficient operation of industrial HVAC and chiller equipment depends upon optimum temperatures of refrigerant and lubricating oil at various phases of the refrigeration cycle....

  • The Car You Save May Be Your Own

    Temperature Sensors Not too long ago I had to junk my car. It was rather heartbreaking, as I always get very attached to my vehicles. This is strange, given I don't know much about car maintenance beyond the stuff that's easiest to do. But I always name my vehicles. The car I had to sell for scrap was Petunia, and while she lasted she was great. The main reason my car was no longer viable was that it was overheating. This in itself isn't a reason to get rid of...

  • The Diminutive Giant: Handheld Temperature Sensors

    It seems as though the one thing every industry must concern itself with is the temperature at which its machines operate. Delicate machinery must be kept in rooms where the temperature is neither too hot nor too cold, while at the same time the machines themselves must run at temperatures that won't affect their efficacy. When you have machinery that runs multiple hours throughout the day or sometimes run constantly, you need a reliable and convenient method to keep an eye on the heat the machines produce. While there are...

  • Going Wireless For Convenience and Safety

    Temperature Sensors Temperature probes are an important part of many industries, especially where keeping track of high or low temperatures must be accurate. This isn't to say that human beings can't track temperature well, but people can't take the temperature of an area that is well below freezing or well above boiling. One such area in which monitoring temperature is of vital importance is in the food industry; where food-borne illnesses are a risk, the importance of making sure the meat a company serves is properly cooked cannot be overstated....

Industry Information

Temperature Sensors

Temperature sensors are used to identify or read the temperatures of materials or substances and supply this information to a control system, or visual output system. An observer is then able to make adjustments accordingly. Temperature sensors are an important component of applications in industries such as food and beverage processing, petrochemical, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and other scientific and engineering processes.

Temperature sensors are able to prevent engines and equipment from overheating as well as preserving the characteristics of substances that change according to heating or cooling. Using both contact and non-contact means of information gathering, temperature sensors or heat sensors are sensitive to changes in the state of a material or substance. Contact temperature sensors are used with solids, liquids or gases and use physical contact to determine the temperature of an object or material. Contact sensors are simple to use and relatively accurate. They have a wide application range but run the risk of contaminating a substance or process. Non-contact sensors or temperature probes use infrared energy emissions to determine the temperature or temperature change of a material or substance. Unable to be used for gas applications, non-contact sensors are however ideal for objects in motion and are able to provide a quick temperature reading.

The sensors determine temperature by sensing physical characteristics such as thermal or infrared radiation, substance resistance or electromagnetic readings. Examples of temperature sensors include devices such as thermocouples, resistance temperature detectors and thermistors. Thermocouples are suitable for heavy-duty environments as they are able to withstand extreme environments and high temperatures. They are also a relatively cheap component of a processing system. Resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) are more expensive but are used in processes where accuracy is essential for process control as they are able to ensure precise measurements. Thermistors on the other hand are especially sensitive to temperature changes as they are typically constructed of semi-conductor materials. They change in electrical resistance when exposed to differing temperatures. When determining the most suitable temperature sensor to install in a system, there are a number of factors to consider. Most importantly, the desired temperature range, reading accuracy and the repeatability of the process are primary choices. Other factors to consider include: probe type, electrical output, sensitivity, response time and cost. For some specific applications, the ruggedness or durability of the temperature sensor may be important. These sensors will have to resist moisture, harsh weather conditions and pollutants or contaminants and so maybe need extra components for protection.
