Inert Gas Filled Temperature Gauge
An inert gas filled thermometer/ gas filled temperature gauge measures temperature by the variation in volume or pressure of a gas.
This thermometer functions by Charles's Law. Charles's Law states that when the temperature of a gas increases, so does the volume.
Using Charles's Law, the temperature can be measured by knowing the volume of gas at a certain temperature by using the formula, written below. Translating it to the correct levels of the device that is holding the gas. This works on the same principle as mercury thermometers (mercury filled temperature gauges).
T is the temperature.
V is the volume.
k is the constant for the system. k is not a fixed constant across all systems and therefore needs to be found experimentally for a given system through testing with known temperature values.
At Goa Thermostatic Instruments we manufacture Gas filled Dial Thermometers (Inert Gas Filled Temperature gauges) with or without Thermowells. These thermowells are manufactured in line with PTC19.3 in different grades of material for various applications like sea water applications, oil and gas applications.
Refer TABLES for ranges available, connection types and the various options available with the supply of Temperature gauges.
