ISA Publishes New Edition on Practical Thermocouple Thermometry

Research Triangle Park, North Carolina (30 July 2012) – The International Society of Automation (ISA) announces that it has produced a new edition of its technical publication, Practical Thermocouple Thermometry, Second Edition, by Thomas W. Kerlin and Mitchell Johnson.

Practical Thermocouple Thermometry, Second Edition, focuses on practical aspects of how thermocouples work; how they go bad; how to access measurement accuracy; and how to select, install and operate them.

Dr. Kerlin, professor emeritus from the College of Engineering at The University of Tennessee, was joined by Johnson, president of JMS-Southeast, in preparing this second edition to include the latest in thermocouple technology. They called upon their 60 plus years of collective experience in theory, research, teaching, manufacturing and real-world applications to produce this edition. Updates include:

  • real-world case studies demonstrating solutions of thermocouple problems
  • properties and performance of all commonly used thermocouple types
  • innovative applications of thermocouples
  • expanded information on thermowell selection for required reliability
  • and much more
