Parker Hannifin Corporation (Huntsville, AL) has introduced Thermowell Sensor Assemblies, designed to protect temperature instruments from damage due to pressure and velocity in process systems, as well as viscous, abrasive, or corrosive materials. Each complete assembly consists of a connection head, spring fitting or nipple union nipple, Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD) or thermocouple, and the thermowell. Parker Texas thermowells are available in threaded, flanged, VanStone, socket weld, weld-in, and sanitary styles in other hard-to-find materials beyond stainless steel. The assemblies offer two temperature sensor options—RTD or thermocouple—both can measure temperature, but the two types of sensors vary in temperature range, tolerance, accuracy, interchangeability, and cost.
