Emerson publishes Engineer’s Guide to Industrial Temperature Measurement
July 9, 2013 - Emerson Process Management announced The Engineer’s Guide to Industrial Temperature Measurement,available at www.rosemount.com/tempguide. The Temperature Guide is free and can be ordered as a printed book, viewed online or downloaded as a PDF.
This resource was developed to help professionals including engineers, designers, operators and technicians understand and implement temperature measurement technology. “The new Temperature Guide is a comprehensive book of technical information on the entire temperature measurement system. It discusses the individual components, including the thermowell, sensor and transmitter” said Michelle Weimert, marketing manager, Emerson Process Management. “There is significant information on selection and installation guidelines, such as Why select an RTD or thermocouple? and What are the advantages of using transmitters instead of long sensor wires?. Also the Temperature Guide has information on maintenance, calibration and troubleshooting basics.”
Development was a joint effort of Emerson’s colleagues, customers and companies from around the world that include: The Dow Chemical Company, Hindustan Petroleum Corp. Ltd., BorsodChem, Beamex Inc and BiLFINGER. “We did not write this Temperature Guide in a vacuum. Rather we consulted with our customers to determine the most common temperature questions and review the content written.”, says Weimert, “Their insight was invaluable.”
It is packed full of useable information including: the basics of temperature measurement; conversion tables; maintenance and calibration practices; proven results/application examples and more. Furthermore, it offers valuable insights and answers to 30 common challenges in a variety of industries and applications from Emerson engineers. The Temperature Guide also has sections on Rosemount Temperature Products, Reference Materials and Documentation as well as a glossary with definitions specifically related to The Temperature Industry.
The Temperature Guide also includes several levels of technical detail – from answering the most commonly asked questions on transmitters, sensors and thermowells, to guidelines on calibration, configuration, maintenance, diagnostics and safety. Best practices are shared drawing from Emerson’s over 50 years of experience in the Temperature Industry with the Rosemount brand of products. A large selection of topics are covered that includes: choose the right sensor technology; thermowell insertion length; grounding or earthing the installation; thermocouple temperature ranges; protection from electrical noise interference; and calibration best practices.
