    Resources for Thermowell Selection and Design

    Measuring and controlling temperature can the most important parameter in many production processes. It’s not only the temperature sensors that are important, but how they are protected by thermowells. Wikipedia has a good definition of what thermowells are : Thermowells are tubular fittings used to protect temperature sensors installed in industrial processes. A thermowell consists of a tube closed at one...
