New ABB handbook helps make industrial temperature measurement easier
Published: 28 September 2017 - Sarah Mead
New guide from ABB provides a thorough grounding in temperature measurement for novices and experts alike.
ABB has released a new in-depth handbook explaining how to maximise temperature measurement accuracy in industrial applications. Titled ‘Industrial temperature measurement: Basics and practice’, the handbook provides a detailed explanation of the key areas that users need to consider when implementing and operating temperature measurement technology.
Available from www.bit.ly/ABBtempguide, the handbook is suitable for both novices and those with more experience in temperature measurement. Written by ABB's temperature experts, the 320-page book is divided into nine main chapters, covering a variety of topics including the principles of temperature measurement; sensor and transmitter options and how to select them; ensuring accuracy through calibration and verification; and the options available for explosive and SIL applications.
“As one of the most widely measured parameters in any industrial application, temperature provides an invaluable indication of what’s happening in a process,” says Steve Gorvett, ABB’s DP Flow and Temperature Product Manager for the UK. “Our new handbook is absolutely essential for any technician, experienced or not, who is looking to better understand the basic principles of temperature measurement and how to select the best solution that will deliver the highest levels of accuracy and reliability in their application.”
