Thermocouples and Thermocouple Assemblies

The Transmitter Shop (TTS) is a leading supplier of temperature, pressure, and level measurement devices. It provides thermocouples and thermocouple assemblies to its clients in process industries.A thermocouple is used as a sensor for temperature measurement in an industrial thermometer. The thermocouple comprises two dissimilar metal conductors, which are combined through a welding process to produce a reference joint. The free edges of metal conductors are used as a measurement point. Electric voltage is generated due to the gradient thermal difference between the reference and measurement points. Due to this effect, the temperature measurement becomes easy.

Benefits of Using Thermocouples

Customers can accrue the following benefits by using thermocouples.

  • Vast Operating Temperature Range:

    Thermocouples can perform well at temperatures as low as -200 oC to as high as +2500 o The high temperature measurement capability of the device is due to the metal wires used.
  • Fast Response:

    Due to their small thermal capacity, and compact size, these devices respond to temperature changes easily. A thermocouple can respond to temperature changes within a few milliseconds.
  • Safety:

    Thermocouples requires no external power excitation, which means they will not heat up. Hence, these temperature measurement devices are safe to use.
  • Ideal for Hazardous Environments:

    Thermocouples feature durable, rugged construction, which makes them immune to vibration, and shock. Hence, they are ideal for hazardous environments.
  • Direct Pairing Possible:

    The thermocouple junction can be grounded and paired with the material to be measured.
  • Affordability:

    Thermocouples are inexpensive as compared to many industrial temperature measurement devices. This is the reason why thermocouples are widely employed for temperature measurement in the process industry.

Applications of Thermocouples

Following are some of the popular applications that make the best use of thermocouples:

  • Electric Arc Furnaces
  • Gas Fed Heating Furnaces
