Thermocouples are used in many different industries and form part of an overall temperature measurement system. A thermocouple consists of two different types of metals than when heated or cooled produces a specific voltage value that can be converted to give a temperature value. This conversion is usually done at the digital temperature indicator, more commonly known as a thermometer.
Calibration of thermocouples is a complex procedure and requires the use of liquid baths along with monitoring of the voltage response of a thermocouple as the temperature of the bath changes. Calibrationhouse has the capability to test all types of common thermocouples including J, K, T and E. Within these different types, K Type thermocouples (often referred to as ‘general purpose thermocouples’) are the most used across industry due to their value for money and wide temperature range of -200ᵒC to +1372ᵒC.
In order to calibrate thermocouples in line with customer requirements we usually ask for a temperature profile or max/min values in order to calibrate at the exact values that are used in their application.
Our team of expert technicians are on hand to help you with any queries you have about calibration, servicing or repair.
