Abstract

Two Pt/Pd thermocouples have been manufactured industrially at CCPI-Europe to a robust design developed by NPL. The first has been exposed to temperatures up to 1000 °C for 93 operating hours and the second exposed to higher temperatures (up to 1300 °C) for 327 operating hours, over the course of a year. No significant drift is observed in the temperature measurement for either thermocouple, when compared against reference Type R thermocouples. This work demonstrates the long-term stability and reliability of Pt/Pd thermocouples in an industrial calibration environment with this new robust design.
