NOTIFICATION FOR CHOOSING PROPER SENSOR
ERROR BY LACK OF INSERT LENGTH
A precise measurement is not possible unless the temperature of a measured object and a measuring junction for a thermocouple and an RTD element for an RTD become the same temperature. Generally, temperature goes down to outward the sensor by heat conduction because the measuring part is inserted a protection tube. A insert length is different by a different condition. The chart below shows necessary insert lengths by multiplying a outer diameter of protection tube.
|TYPE||STILL LIQUID||STILL ATMOSPHERE|
|RTD (MI sheath)||MORE THAN 10 TIMES||MORE THAN 15 TIMES|
|RTD (protection tube)||MORE THAN 10 TIMES||MORE THAN 15 TIMES|
|T/C (metal)||MORE THAN 15 TO 20 TIMES|
|T/C (ceramic)||MORE THAN 15 TO 20 TIMES|
CASE STUDY FOR SENSOR SET UP
1. CASE E -45
Lack of the insert length, the volum of the boss is too large, and no thermal insulation on the pipe.
2. CASE A -15
Lack of the insert length, the volum of the boss is too large, and lack of thermal insulation on the pipe.
3. CASE B -2
Good boss installation, but no thermal insulation on the flange.
4. CASE C -1
The installation is good, but a little lack of insert length.
5. CASE D 0
The best way for the installation.
It takes some time for an element and a measuring junction being the same temperature as an object. It is called "temporal error." A smaller diameter responds faster, but mechanically weaker. It is important to choose a sensor by the purpose and necessity.
Please refer to each technical data for response time.
