MARKET POP-UP SESSION
Sensing Fluid Temperature in pipes with MINCO RTD Thermal-Ribbons

12:00-12:15pm

Accurate temperature sensing of liquids flowing in pipes is essential to process control and energy management systems. The traditional approach is to use probe-style sensors and thermowells inserted into the fluid stream. These immersed sensors can be costly and difficult to install, especially when retrofitted to existing facilities. Scott Hardley of Mod-Tronic Instruments Ltd. will explain how thermal-ribbon flexible RTDs make an economical alternative to thermowells, offering surface-mounted simplicity with no loss of accuracy.

And in some cases, such companies have to absorb those shipping costs in order to sell their products.
Hear how Freightcom can help small to medium sized businesses access the same pricing as large companies.
