Infrared Thermometer Supplier Malaysia

Non-contact Temperature Sensors

These detectors measure the amount of radiation emitted by a surface. As the temperature of a body increases, the amount of infrared emitted and its average frequency also goes up.

The target material radiating efficiency will have a bearing on the reading and the emissivity ( between 0 and 100%) needs to be known. This rating can vary between 95% for an efficient surface to 20% for polished metal.

The emissivity of the surface must be known. Varying oxidation or roughness will affect the reading. A coating is often applied to ensure a certain emissivity figure.

Care needs to be taken to avoid reading contamination from sources other than the target. A detector will have a certain field of view which can be altered to concentrate on the target.

One significant advantage of infrared temperature measurement is that it is non-contact. Thus moving bodies, fragile or wet surfaces and very aggressive media can be measured with relative ease. Very large surfaces can also be measured and simply averaged, or hot spots detected without masses of wiring and detectors.

Only surface temperatures can be read. If the bulk temperature of a process is to be recorded a sheath must be inserted into the process and it must act as a sighting target.

Infrared thermometers can record high temperatures up to 3000 °C, well above Thermocouples and Resistance Thermometers (RTDs) although they suffer from higher inaccuracies and other problems such as radiant heat.

Thermocouple Wire Supplier Malaysia – Compensating and Extension Cable

Thermocouple Extension Cables use the actual thermocouple materials, but in cheaper forms. This is achieved by using cheaper insulations, wider tolerance alloys and thinner conductors (as they will see little thermal stress in their lifetime). They are produced in multi-stranded forms for ease of installation The thermoelectric performance is clearly very similar to the actual sensor.

Thermocouple Compensating Cables use completely different alloys that happen to exhibit very similar thermo-electric properties up to a limited temperature (usually 200°C ). Great care should be taken to control the temperature of the junction between the compensating cable and the actual thermocouple material to keep it below the acceptable maximum. Compensating cables come in convenient cabling forms for site installations.

Thermocouples VS RTD’S

The following chart indicates some inherent advantages and disadvantages of RTD’s or thermocouples.

THERMOCOUPLE RTD’S
Accuracy Limits of error wider than RTD Limits of error smaller than thermocouples
Ruggedness Excellent Sensitive to strain, shock, and pressure
Temperature -400° to 4200°F -200° to 1475°F
Size Can be as small as .01” sheath material, tip sensitive Size limited to 1/16”, temperature sensitive for length of bulb
Drift Should be checked periodically, higher than RTD’s 0.01 to 0.1°C per year, less drift than thermocouple
Resolution Must resolve millivolts per degree, lower signal to noise ratio Ohms per degree, much higher

signal to noise ratio than thermocouple

Cold Junction Reference Required Not required
Lead wire Must match lead wire calibration to thermocouple calibration Can use copper lead wire for extension wire
Response Can be made small enough for millisecond response time Thermal mass restricts time to seconds or more
Cost Low Higher than thermocouples

How To Choose A Temperature Sensor?

There are many things that need to be taken into account when designing a temperature sensor. The key is to determine what are the critical factors which relate to your process or product and dismiss the rest.

In order to make the process as easy as possible answer the questions below and send your answers to us to help you get the sensor for your application:

  1. What is your temperature range?
  2. What are your accuracy requirements?
  3. How many sensors do you need?
  4. What are the size requirements or restrictions? Diameters? Lengths?
  5. How long does it need to last?
  6. Do you require calibration?
  7. When do you need it?
  8. Is it light use at ambient temperature, or harsh use at extremes of temperature, under attack?
  9. How do you want to measure your process/product? (Hot end)
  10. How does it connect to your equipment/instrumentation ? (Cold end)

Resistance Thermometer Inserts

Resistance Thermometer Inserts are commonly used in pocket, thermowell or head assemblies. They are constructed with Pt100 sensors insulated and protected by mineral insulated powder, which is then packed inside a rigid metal tube. They are very similar to mineral insulated resistance thermometers but they cannot be bent to shape.

Common options include:

  1. Resistance Thermometer Insert with Block
  2. Resistance Thermometer Insert with DIN Plate
  3. Resistance Thermometer Insert with Transmitter
  4. Resistance Thermometer Insert with Head

Contact us with your requirements if you have an existing sensor design or are unsure what you need we’ll be able to find you get the right sensor for your process. Please call Ms. Toh at 012-2951393 or email to sbtoh@dpstar.com.my.

Cable Resistance Thermometers

We, dpstar Group manufacture and design cable resistance thermometers, often called cable rtd’s or cable Pt100’s. Cable resistance thermometers are very cost effective for temperature measurement below 260°C, although some designs are good up to 500°C. The construction of a cable resistance thermometer consists of a RTD element, often a Pt100 securely attached to a length of cable. The Pt100 element can then be protected in a number of ways and designed to get the best measurement from your process. The maximum temperature for a cable resistance thermometer is determined by its insulation but there are high temperature options such as glass fibre if required.

There are a variety of options when it comes to cable resistance thermometer design. Common designs include:

  1. Cable Resistance Thermometer With Screw Tip
  2. Cable Resistance Thermometer With Metal Pocket
  3. Cable Resistance Thermometer with Ceramic Pocket
  4. Cable Resistance Thermometer With Pipe Clamp
  5. Cable Resistance Thermometer With Polymer Coating
  6. Cable Resistance Thermometer With Eye/Washer
  7. Cable Resistance Thermometer With Exposed Element
  8. Cable Resistance Thermometer With Handle

Contact us with your requirements if you have an existing sensor design or are unsure what you need we’ll be able to find you get the right sensor for your process. Please call Ms. Toh at 012-2951393 or email to sbtoh@dpstar.com.my.

Mineral Insulated RTD

We, dpstar Group manufacture and design mineral insulated resistance thermometers. Resistance thermometers are often called resistance thermometer detectors (RTD) or simply Pt100 sensors. Mineral insulated resistance thermometers consists of an external metal sheath which protects the P100 element from damage and contamination. This outer sheath is insulated with magnesium oxide powder, tightly packed so no air is trapped inside. This not only gives great thermal conductivity but mineral insulated RTD can be bent into a variety of shapes to suit your application.

There are a wide range of options for our MI resistance thermometers. They can be constructed with various diameters and materials of sheath, many different RTD types (Pt100, Pt1000 etc) and mineral insulated RTD lengths.

There are a variety of options when it comes to MI RTD design. Select the appropriate design below to view full specifications. Common designs included:-

  • MI Resistance Thermometer with Pot Seal & Flexible Tails
  • Mineral Insulated Resistance Thermometer with Standard Plug
  • Mineral Insulated Resistance Thermometer with Miniature Plug
  • Mineral Insulated Resistance Thermometer with Seal
  • Mineral Insulated Resistance Thermometer with Transmitter
  • Mineral Insulated Resistance Thermometer Insert with DIN Plate
  • Mineral Insulated Resistance Thermometer with Head
  • MI Resistance Thermometer with Cable
  • Mineral Insulated Resistance Thermometer Insert with Block
