New thermowell: Self-draining in any mounting position
Klingenberg, April 2010.
WIKA has developed a new thermowell for sanitary applications. The TW61 in hygienic design not only enables temperature measurement with the minimum of dead space, but also, at the same time, remains self-draining in all mounting positions.
The patent-pending design avoids the usual neck in the respective pipe section for fitting the measuring instrument. The new TW61 thermowell ensures simple cleaning and reduces the risk of contamination. The process connection is made via an orbital weld or via a removable hygienic connection.
In combination with the TR22 or the TR21 resistance thermometer the new thermowell represents a highly-efficient solution for temperature measuring points: Both thermometers increase the installation flexibility, either due to the rotatable connection head (TR22) or the exceptionally compact dimensions (TR21). In addition, the instruments can be calibrated, time- and cost-effectively, on-site, with a sealed process and without having to disconnect the electrical connections.
