Thermowells | Bimetal Thermometers | thermocouple

Thermowells are essential to protecting your thermometer or temperature sensor in your high-pressure or high-temperature applications. They can protect your investment and keep your measurements accurate, no matter how extreme the environment. One of the top questions we receive here at Ashcroft from those in the temperature measurement industry is how to properly fit a thermowell. What measurements are needed? What is a u-dimension and how does it factor in? Many factors are at play, and it can be easy to get the wrong size if you aren’t paying attention.
