Temperature monitoring of gas flow (esp. for rotameters)

See the below file for instructions to assemble a temperature probe to tube fittings and adapters to monitor the temperature of gas flowing through a tube. This is commonly used to monitor the outlet gas temperature from a rotameter (variable area flow meter) to make a square root density correction.

     

Note that the pressure fitting should be closer to the outlet of the rotameter than the temperature fitting because there might be some pressure drop over the temperature probe.

The temperature monitoring device in the image is a Fluke Calibration 1524 with a 5665-P thermistor probe.
