Multiple Temperature Points, One Multi-Point Sensor

Multi-point temperature sensors provide an economical and efficient way to handle several points of measure in a process.  A single multi-point temperature sensor assembly consists of a number of RTDs (Pt100s) or thermocouples encased at various points inside a sleeve, sheath, jacket or tube installed at a single location with one access junction enclosure.  Multi-point sensors can be various lengths, sizes in diameter, made of a variety of materials, and constructed to measure a wide range of temperatures.

Multi-point temperature sensors are utilized in many industries including

•oil & gas
•food & beverage
•power generation
•heat treating
•water & wastewater
•and more
These sensors are often used to measure multiple temperature points in storage tanks, piping systems, ovens/kilns/furnaces, air flow ducts, grain bins, heat exchangers, rail car & truck tanks, chemical vessels and others.

Depending on the application, multi-point temperature sensors provide detailed temperature profiles for optimized process control.  They are often used to map or average temperatures over a large area, identify temperature gradients, or to detect hot spots within the process.

Pyromation manufactures a variety of standard and custom-designed multi-point temperature sensor assemblies that are used in applications in many industries around the world.  The company’s multi-point sensors are available in a variety of RTD (Pt100s) or Thermocouple options with various connection fittings, terminations and/or enclosures.  Pyromation also builds multi-point sensors with mounting flanges, flex-armor cable jackets, protection tubes, temperature transmitters and more.
