Wound Platinum RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) Elements with Ceramic Wire are specialized temperature sensors used in various industries and applications for accurate temperature measurement. The term “RTD” stands for Resistance Temperature Detector, which means these elements are designed to measure temperature by monitoring changes in electrical resistance as temperature varies.Wound Platinum RTD elements are known for their high accuracy and precision in temperature measurement. They provide reliable and repeatable results, making them suitable for critical applications. Platinum is commonly used as the resistance material in these RTD elements due to its excellent temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) and stability over a wide temperature range
The use of ceramic wire ensures that these RTD elements can withstand high-temperature environments, making them suitable for applications in extreme conditions. These RTD elements follow a well-defined resistance vs. temperature curve, typically based on the International Temperature Scale (ITS-90). This curve allows for precise temperature measurement. Wound Platinum RTD elements can operate in a wide temperature range, from cryogenic temperatures to high-temperature applications, depending on the specific model and design. They are used in a variety of industries, including chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, and food processing, as well as in laboratory settings for precise temperature monitoring.
