Emerson Process Management has launched a series of six brief videos entitled ‘Temperature Insights’ to help engineers, technicians, operators, managers and more better understand and implement temperature measurement technology.

The brief videos can be watched for free at They cover a variety of subjects and draw from Emerson’s engineers experience and expertise as well as over 50+ years in temperature measurement.

Video titles are as follows:

  • RTD vs. Thermocouple.
  • Thermowell Selection.
  • Avoiding Long Sensor Wires.
  • High Accuracy & Reliability.
  • Benefits of Diagnostics.
  • Installation Best Practices.

Temperature is the most widely measured variable in the process industries.

Variances in a process can have a significant impact on profits. If a temperature measurement is not accurate, repeatable, and reliable for any reason, it can have a detrimental effect on such things as process efficiency, energy consumption, product quality, and possibly process safety. It directly affects a variety of industries and applications including oil and gas, power, refining and petrochemical.

The Temperature Insights video series is based upon ‘The Temperature Guide to Industrial Temperature Measurement’ from Emerson. The book includes information such as: the basics of temperature measurement; conversion tables; maintenance and calibration practices; proven results/application examples and more. Furthermore, it offers valuable insights and answers to 30 common challenges in a variety of industries and applications from Emerson engineers.
