5 Ways To Spot A Quality Exhaust Gas Temperature Probe (EGT)

1. Know if it is made with Mineral Insulated Cable. There are two main ways EGTs can be constructed. One way uses Mineral Insulated (MI) Cable. The other way uses thermocouple wire inside of a Stainless-Steel Tube. Quality EGTs will always be made using MI Cable. MI Cable uses Magnesium Oxide (MgO) Powder to insulate…

Principle of Operation of a Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD)

“An RTD (resistance temperature detector) is a temperature sensor that operates on the measurement principle that a material’s electrical resistance changes with temperature. “The relationship between an RTD’s resistance and the surrounding temperature is highly predictable, allowing for accurate and consistent temperature measurement. By supplying an RTD with a constant current and measuring the resulting…

Temperature Sensors Explained

“The height of the column is divided up and marked to correlate it with known temperatures, for example: at water boils 100°C (212°F), and it freezes as 0°C (32°F). As the liquids volume expands and contracts, we can easily read the temperature. “This method is easy for humans to use but it’s slow, it’s not…
