Applications of Thermocouples

Thermocouples are suitable for measuring over a large temperature range, up to 2300ºC. They are less suitable for applications where smaller temperature differences need to be measured with high accuracy, for example the range 0-100ºC with 0.1 ºC accuracy.

For such applications thermistors and resistance temperature detectors are more suitable. Applications include temperature measurement for kilns, gas turbine exhaust, diesel engines, and other industrial processes. Some other applications are as follows:

  • Steel Industry
  • Cement Industry
  • Pharmaceutical Industry
  • Petrochemical Industry
  • Nuclear Industry
  • Power Industry
  • Laboratories
  • Furnace Industry
