Temperature is the most commonly measured process parameter in the world as it is often critical to the success or failure of a process. Bimetal Thermometers are a simple and cost effective way to achieve a visual indication of temperature in a process. Otherwise known as a bimetallic dial thermometer, they operate by employing the use of two dissimilar metals that react to temperature at differing rates.
The metallic elements are welded together to form a coil, and expand and contract as a reaction to temperature change. This movement is connected to a dial pointer through mechanical linkages and is translated into a rotational movement, thereby providing a visual reading.
Bimetal Thermometers are available with a wide range of options, and can offer accurate visual temperature readings from -70…600°C. Versions are available with up to IP68 Ingress Protection and ATEX versions are available for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
