Modern Temperature Sensors Increase Accuracy

By Joy LePree |

Both new and traditional technologies simplify and improve the temperature-sensing process Temperature is cited as the most frequently measured variable in chemical processing plants. As a result, there is no shortage of instruments available and the offerings run the gamut from traditional thermocouples and resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) to more modern and intelligent versions of these common instruments straight on through to higher technology measurement tools. As a bonus, no matter which of the many options suit your chemical processing needs, most of today’s temperature measurement instruments are updated and re-designed to simplify the temperature sensing process, while making it more accurate and reliable. “As with all measurement instruments, the higher the accuracy and reliability of the sensor, the more valuable it is to the user because tighter, more accurate process control results in better quality and utilization,” says Ted Johnson, director of global temperature sales with SOR Controls Group (Lenexa, Kan.; www.sorinc.com). “This is especially true in temperature measurement because temperature is the most measured process variable in the plant. And, when you have the most accurate temperature sensor…
