Thermowells are used to protect temperature sensors used to monitor industrial processes while permitting accurate measurement. They are typically installed in piping systems and subject to both hydrostatic and aerodynamic forces.
N.B. Use a pocket or thermowell to protect your temperature instruments from process systems where pressure, velocity, or viscous, abrasive and corrosive materials are present. A thermowell allows safer removal of an instrument at the time of replacement, repair or testing without affecting the process system. It is important to choose the correct thermowell for your instrument and process. Contact Teltherm for technical assistance and we will guide you through this process.
