Thermowell

A thermowell is a pressure-tight receptacle that protects and extends the life of a temperature sensor in processing applications where the sensor is not mechanically or chemically compatible with the process environment. Installed directly into piping, vats or other parts of process systems, thermowells facilitate sensor replacement in high pressure pipelines and eliminate the need to interrupt the process flow or drain of the process system for sensor maintenance functions. The use of standardized thermowells permits simple relocation of sensors throughout a plant.

Strength versus accurate and fast temperature measurement is a balancing act. The factors which tend to produce high strength also tend to reduce the temperature sensor’s accuracy and speed of response. A properly selected thermowell will balance these opposing factors to produce a design capable of functioning satisfactorily in the intended application selection.
