Emerson Process Management’s Thermowell calculation service is now based on the new standard created by American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) that establishes the practical design considerations for thermowell installations.
ASME updated its standard on thermowells to create the ASME PTC 19.3TW – 2010. The new standard is designed to help overall reliability of temperature measurement.
Using this new standard, Emerson now provides recommendations on thermowell design and installation best practices.
Using outdated standards to calculate thermowell size can pose an increased risk of failures due to increasing line sizes and pipe velocities, Rockwell says.
