Thermowells are designed to protect temperature sensors and other temperature devices from coming in direct contact with the process being measured.
Application: Temperature measurement in the process control infrastructure
Like thermowells, protection tubes protect temperature sensors and other temperature devices from coming in direct contact with the process being measured. Unlike thermowells, protection tubes are constructed to withstand very high temperatures that conventional alloy thermowells are unable to withstand. They can be assembled from either an alloy, ceramic or custom material and are generally manufactured from standard pipe and pipe fittings.
Application: Protection tubes are commonly used in furnaces and other high temperature applications.
