Bearing Oil Sensor For High Vibration Environments

Bearing Oil Sensor For High Vibration Environments

A compressor at a chemical company vibrated severely – a common problem with compressors in any industry. An important sensor used to measure the compressor’s bearing oil temperature was a field-cuttable RTD that failed frequently, forcing a compressor shutdown each time. The Moore Industries WORM Flexible Temperature Sensors solved the problem.

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?
