Multipoint thermocouples are often used for measuring temperature profiles in reactors or fuel depots or for the detection of the so-called “hotspots”.
The so-called multipoint thermocouple T-Bar design is common for certain vessel designs. In this design, several exchangeable thermocouples are linearly arranged in a T-Bar/pipe design.
The thermocouples are replaceable within the protection tube/flanged primary pressure containment. This design can be provided with a secondary containment option and various neck extensions to suit customer requirements. Connection terminals or temperature transmitters are placed in the connection housing which is either a component of the multipoint thermocouple or can be mounted separately, e.g. on a wall or pipeline.
