What is a Platinum Resistance Thermometer (PRT)?

Wednesday, 31 May 2017 10:22:14 AM Australia/Sydney

A PRT is a temperature sensing device. It measures temperature using the resistance of a piece of pure platinum wire. Platinum is typically used due to its stability and ability to be reduced to fine wires.

A PRT is one type of RTD. The difference is the material it constructed with, and hence it gets its own name PRT. The sensing element is an electrical resistor that changes resistance with temperature.

RTD Fundamentals

Tuesday, 15 November 2016 11:40:18 AM Australia/Sydney

rtdPyrosales Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs) are specially designed to ensure precise and repeatable temperature versus resistance characteristics. The sensors are constructed in a unique strain-free manner, and use only high quality RTD elements. Ceramic, wire-wound elements, flat film technology elements, or military specified anti-vibration elements are used as per customer’s requirement to ensure the most suitable specification is supplied.

What is a PT100?

Wednesday, 26 October 2016 11:08:45 AM Australia/Sydney

pt100 blueA PT100 is the most common type of Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD). The PT100 has a resistance of 100 Ohms at 0°C and 138.5 Ohms at 100°C.

PT100s are a common choice for measuring temperature in industrial processes and laboratories. They are a popular choice due to their stability, accuracy and repeatability. They are frequently selected over thermocouples, due to the belief that they are more accurate.

What is an RTD?RTD

A resistance temperature detector, also known as an RTD or resistance thermometer, is a type of temperature sensor. An RTD consists of a sensing element, wires to connect the sensing element to the measurement instrument and a support to position the sensing element in the process.

Smart Monitor Systems – Alarm System on Refrigerators for Blood

Tuesday, 19 August 2014 1:55:16 PM Australia/Sydney

Rtd Blood FridgeSmart Monitor Systems, a customer of Pyrosales, developed an alarm system over 20 years ago to monitor and manage the temperature of fridges for the storage of blood samples. Across various pathology laboratories in NSW, the system is designed to notify staff when there is a temperature deviation from a predetermined value.  

It is essential that blood storage facilities are controlled and monitored in order to comply with Department of Health guidelines.

Food, glorious food!

Friday, 3 May 2013 1:20:58 PM Australia/Sydney

foodFood is glorious, isn’t it? We need it to live, we spend a large portion of the weekly budget on it and we enjoy it. Many of our favourite food found in the supermarket is processed from raw ingredients into marketable foods with long shelf lives. Poultry, chocolate, sauces, cheese, coffee, beer, wine and spirits, and many other favourites, get to the shelves from process plants around the country.

Temperature is a critical quantity in many fields of food industry processes, from assurance of quality during production, up to storage and transport to final users.

Had your morning coffee?

Friday, 3 May 2013 1:01:48 PM Australia/Sydney

coffeeThe humble coffee bean has been a product of trade for hundreds of years and has become Australia’s most popular hot drink. Coffee roasting can be done in different sized roasters, but with the same goal: to produce the best possible taste from the beans.   

Great care is taken to roast the beans; undercooked beans taste raw, and overcooked beans have a burnt taste. Roasting coffee beans requires both heat and movement. The beans must cook evenly and are therefore moved around during roasting.

Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs)

Friday, 3 May 2013 12:08:19 PM Australia/Sydney

rtdResistance Temperature Detectors, also known as RTDs and resistance thermometers, are temperature-sensing devices that change resistance at a predetermined rate in response to changes in temperature. They are circuit elements whose resistance increases with increasing temperature in a predictable manner. 

Pyrosales’ RTDs are specially designed to ensure precise and repeatable temperature versus resistance characteristics. The sensors are constructed in a unique strain-free manner and use only high quality RTD elements. Ceramic, wire-wound elements, or flat film technology elements are used as per customer’s requirements to ensure the most suitable specification is supplied.
