A non-intrusive system fortemperature measurement

Last month, this company introduced a new platform for its Rosemount X-well Technology surface-sensing temperature measurement solution (photo). The new offering extends this non-intrusive temperature sensing technology to users in conventional wired I/O environments for potential applications in facilities where wired networks are already installed, or where WirelessHART has not yet been deployed. Other users have found X-well to be a useful replacement for difficult thermowell installations, which often have a wired connection already available and can be reused with the wired version of X-well, says the manufacturer. X-well Technology works by measuring the pipe surface temperature and ambient temperature, and combining this information with the thermal conductivity properties of the installation and process piping to produce a process temperature measurement. This measurement technique requires no intrusions or penetrations into the process, allowing for simpler installation and maintenance. Users do not have to design, size or maintain thermowells. Wake frequency calculations are eliminated, as well as time spent determining material compatibility, the right insertion length and the necessary profile. — Emerson Automation Solutions, St. Louis, Mo.
