Temperature sensors are not just about RTDs and thermocouple devices. Some of the most important parts that go into an efficient and accurate temperature sensing system are often times less talked about. Thermowells, transmitters, connection heads, wiring…all of these items are just as important as what kind of sensor technology you choose. At Integrity Calibration Services, we know temperature sensors backwards and forwards, so we can help you put together the assembly that will make the most sense for your process and your budget.
A thermowell is a container around a temperature sensor like an RTD or a thermocouple that provides a barrier between the process environment and the actual sensor. It helps to protect and extend the life of the temperature sensor in industrial processing applications where the sensor is not compatible with the process environment. Thermowells also help when replacing sensors because there is no need to interrupt the process flow or drain the process system for sensor maintenance.
Integrity has access to a wide range of thermowells for different applications and industries and are available as separate components or as a part of complete temperature sensor assemblies.
Wireless temperature transmitters make it possible to send a scaleable mA signal from a temperature sensor to a control device without investing in long, expensive runs of thermocouple or RTD wire.
Integrity has access to a wide array of transmitters depending on your application. Weather resistant, approved for hazardous locations, single and multi-channel models, mounted in the sensor assembly connection head or surface mounted, we will work to find the right fit for your process.
Connection heads provide a protected, clean area for mounting a terminal block or transmitter as part of the transition from temperature sensor assembly to lead wire. Aluminum, plastic, stainless steel, cast iron are the most common materials available for assembly connection heads. Integrity Calibration has access to all types of heads including screw-cover connections as well as flip-top heads for easy access. Connection heads are available as separate components or as a part of complete temperature sensor assemblies.
Temperature Sensor Wiring
Integrity Calibration Services stocks and sells a variety of sizes and gauges of thermocouple and extension wire, as well as wire insulators. We also offer special construction thermocouple wire and RTD cable, including multi-pair thermocouple extension wire.
One other point to note is that Integrity Calibration Services is a calibration lab. This means that we are able to test and calibrate your temperature sensor assembly completely before they even enter your facility. Our technical staff has over 70 years of experience calibrating temperature devices with uncertainties as low as +-(0.05C).
