This course familiarizes the reader with the basic selection decisions that must be made in order to select the proper thermowell for each application. Standard lengths for temperature sensors and thermometers are discussed to help the reader choose a combination of thermowell process insertion length, lagging length, and extension length to fit an off-the-shelf temperature sensor or thermometer. There are many illustrations and several examples to clarify the meanings of terms like process insertion length and lagging length. This course gathers together the far-flung pieces of information about thermowells and arranges them in a cohesive, easily-understood presentation.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
