Installation of thermocouple, should pay attention to temperature measuring accurate, safe and reliable and convenient maintenance, and shall not affect the equipment operation and production operations.
To meet the above requirements, in the choice of the installation site of the thermocouple and insertion depth should pay attention to the following points: 1, in order to make the measurement end of the thermocouple, and had good heat exchange between the measured medium, should be a reasonable choice of observation, try to avoid the valve, elbow and thermocouple pipeline and equipment near the corner of installations.
2, with a thermocouple with heat transfer and heat loss protection casing, in order to reduce the measurement error, thermocouple and thermocouple should have enough insert depth: for measurement of pipeline fluid temperature thermocouple, generally should be measuring end is inserted into the pipe (
Vertical or inclined installation)
As the current body of pipe diameter is 200 mm, the thermocouple insertion depth should choose 100 mm;
For high temperature and high pressure and high velocity of temperature measurement,
Such as main steam temperature)
, in order to reduce cases of fluid resistance and prevent cases break under the action of a fluid, can take protecting tube shallow inserted way or use hot thermocouple.
Shallow inserted type thermocouple protection tube, its depth into the steam pipe should be no less than 75 mm;
Heat sets the standard of thermocouple insertion depth is 100 mm if is need to measure the temperature of flue gas, although the flue is 4 m in diameter, thermocouple insertion depth of 1 m.
When measuring the original insertion depth of more than 1 m, shall be installed vertically, as far as possible or add racks and protect casing.
