Thermocouples, known for their versatility, durability, and cost-efficiency, serve as the most widely used temperature sensors. They find application in diverse fields, from household appliances to aerospace, and from food processing to extruders."
"Thermocouples for Food Applications: In the food and beverage industry, thermocouples play various roles, including Clean-in-Place sensors, Penetration Probes, Oven Control, Food Chain Monitoring, Hotplate Control, and Steam Kettle temperature control."
"Thermocouples for Extruders: Extruders operate under high temperature and pressure conditions. Specialized threaded adapters are used to position the sensor tip within molten plastic. Preferred choices include TER/WPI/SEFE, SERP thermocouples available in single and double elements. BT and CF products are also favored, particularly in low-pressure parts of the extruder, available in both thermocouple and RTD models."
"Thermocouples for Low Temperature: Type E, K, T, and N thermocouples can measure temperatures as low as -200 °C, but specific alloy selection is crucial to maintain accuracy at these temperatures. Offset values can be established through individual calibration to ensure precision."
"Thermocouples for Ovens: Selecting the right thermocouple depends on the conditions the oven will face, including temperature capacity, sheath material, atmospheric conditions, and mounting configuration."
"Thermocouples for Molten Metal: Measuring the temperature of molten metal is challenging due to extreme conditions. Types K, N, R, S, and B thermocouples are suitable for contact measurements in this environment. Platinum thermocouple wires are used, with deterioration occurring differently compared to Type K and N wires."
