Multipoint Thermocouples

Sensor Accurately Measures Temperature Across Multiple Locations

Multipoint temperature sensors accurately measure temperatures at various locations along the sensor's length. They are used across a broad range of processes and installations—predominately in applications involving a large or complex process where close temperature control is necessary.Temperature variances exist in all systems, regardless of materials, working fluid or system design. There is not a process that involves heating a particular medium where temperature of that medium is consistent throughout—temperature gradients always exist. Sensing temperature at a single location during a process is acceptable for many applications because temperature gradients are often insignificant. However, there is a need for many applications to monitor temperature in multiple locations to ensure a safe, accurate and cost efficient process. Installing multiple, independent temperature sensors may be impractical due to cost or space limitations.
