Temperature Measurement Gets Smarter and Safer

By Gerald Ondrey |

New innovations in temperature sensors, calibration and associated equipment are helping to keep plants operating reliably and safely Temperature is one of the most important process parameters that needs to be measured and controlled in the chemical process industries (CPI). For this reason, vendors are continuously improving temperature sensors, transmitters and the associated hardware and software to ensure accurate and reliable measurements, while ensuring safety at the plant. And despite the analog nature of traditional thermocouples and resistance-temperature detectors (RTDs), digitalization is now “par for the course,” while the industrial internet of things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 trends go hand-in-hand with making the process and the process equipment more reliable. “The major trends in temperature measurement these last few years have revolved around safety, digital transformation and innovation,” says Kevin Stultz, global product manager for Emerson’s Rosemount Temperature (St. Louis, Mo.; www.emerson.com). “New software and digital tools are becoming more prevalent in the industry, as customers want more data on their process and faster service, this leads to a demand for reducing complexity and improving…
