Product description


The principles underlying all devices used to sense temperature are explained in this book. It also describes how sensor signals are processed to convert them to indications of temperature. Descriptions are given of the fundamental concepts of temperature, the Thermodynamic Temperature Scale and the International Practical Temperature Scale. In addition, the text covers sensor choice, response characteristics, heat transfer conditions, installation errors, instrumentation compromises and mechanisms of sensor deterioration. Many specific sensors are described, including expansion devices, liquid-in-glass thermometers, electrical resistance devices, thermistors, electronic sensors, thermocouples, disappearing filament optical pyrometers, infrared pyrometers, total radiation pyrometers, pyrometric cones and other novel methods. The book also includes a discussion of measurement of temperatures to a fraction of a degree Kelvin.
