Donation Aids in Restoration of World War II PT Boat

Donation Aids in Restoration of World War II PT Boat

Moore Industries is doing its part to get an historic World War II boat back in the water. We've recently donated products that will help The National WWII Museum in New Orleans to restore a classic Higgins Industries PT (Patrol Torpedo) boat and make it seaworthy again.

Temperature Q&A with JR Madden: Flexible RTD Sensors Needed for Cold and Hot Fluid Lines

Temperature Q&A with JR Madden: Flexible RTD Sensors Needed for Cold and Hot Fluid Lines
Q: I have a project for six RTD measurements that makes using standard fixed length sensors difficult because there is little clearance near the top of the thermowell for sensor insertion.  It looks like your “WORM Sensor” would be an ideal fit for the application because of its flexible design.  These RTD sensors need to be 100 or 1000 ohm platinum elements with Class A or 1/3 DIN accuracy ratings. They will be used to monitor chilled and hot water lines with min and max temperature limits of 30 F and 180 F.  Maximum insertion length in these ¼ inch ID thermowells is about 10 inches.  I noticed that your standard WORM length is 24 or 36 inches.  Are custom length WORM sensors available?  If so, what cost is associated with ordering multiple sensors at custom lengths?  Lastly, we usually request test data with all of our sensors and check them in our air bath or heat block calibration units.  Can you offer a test report or test data points with these WORM sensors?

EHELP: Temperature Measurements in Liquid

EHELP: Temperature Measurements in Liquid

Q: We want three 100 ohm, .00385 Alpha RTDs to measure heated glucose in railroad cars. We heat the glucose to 140-150°F, and want to use a 5-foot long flexible sensor with a head on top containing a terminal strip. We also want to run flexible conduit from the head with copper wire for easy replacement access. We can fabricate a bracket that would span the midway above the railcar that supports the housings and includes holes that allow the flexible RTDs to drop down for installation. What do you offer that is a fit for our application?

Temperature Q&A with JR Madden: What is the least expensive way to speed up sensor response time in a thermowell?

Temperature Q&A with JR Madden: What is the least expensive way to speed up sensor response time in a thermowell?

Q. What is the least expensive way to speed up response time of a sensor installed inside of a thermowell? We have a reactor associated with a quickly changing process and need to be able to control any sudden changes. What do you suggest?

Temperature Q&A with JR: We are seeing false readings in our outdoor temperature measurement application due to environmental exposure

Temperature Q&A with JR: We are seeing false readings in our outdoor temperature measurement application due to environmental exposure

Q: We have several outdoor temperature applications where we measure the temperatures of pipes running alongside cooling towers. These sensors are in several different locations and zip-tied to the outer surface of the cooling pipes. Our problem has been that exposure to rain, sun and heavy snow causes signals to drop off or spike. We believe moisture is getting into the wire jacket and the environmental exposure is causing false readings. The sensors we use have a PVC jacket over the lead wires and it shows cracking over time. We need to replace the sensors and would like a 4-20mA output signal to go from our junction box out to the field instead of running the sensor lead wires all the way back to our monitoring system. What type of solution do you have for this?
