Test on Thermowells

What are the different types of tests performed on thermowells used in temperature measurement?

Routine Tests ( In House)

  • Dimensions check
  • Thread check
  • Hydrotest internal and external for weld joints
  • Bore concentricity check using ultrasonic meter
  • Dye penetration check for weld joints
  • Chemical analysis traceability

Optional Tests( In House)

  • Helium leak test for weld joints
  • Full vaccum test
