This article was originally published on July 24, 2023, by Rick Zerafin and was updated on April 29, 2024, by Dave Dlugos. Maintenance, reliability, process and Health Safety Environment (HSE) teams rely on accurate and stable temperature measurements to meet their goals. Thermocouples, new out of the box, are a critical tool for these measurements that help plant personnel maintain safe and efficient operations. Today, instrument designers use a wide array of thermocouple types, such as Type K, Type E and Type T to measure temperatures in applications ranging from cryogenic temperatures of -196 °C to the extremes of 1700 °C. This article will discuss how thermocouple calibration offers added benefits that promote process improvements and support compliance requirements. When you are done reading, you will also find additional related resources that can help you gain more insight into these important instruments.

Consistently accurate measurements of temperature are vital to several industrial processes in fields from construction to energy to manufacturing. And while there are many ways to measure temperature of gas and liquid, thermocouples are among the most popular thanks to their simple design and versatility. But over time, a thermocouple’s performance may tail off for any number of reasons. Two of the most common are drift and elevated temperature.
