The Air and Gas Pt100 Probe – HI768A is designed to measure the temperature of air and gas samples.
The operating principle of resistance thermometers is based on the increase of electric resistance of metal conductors (RTD: Resistance Temperature Detectors) with temperature. Among the various metals to be used in the construction of RTDs, platinum (Pt), a noble metal, is one that can measure temperatures throughout a wide range with a stable, linear behavior. The most common RTD sensor using platinum is the Pt100. Hanna’s Pt100 thermometers and probes use multi-wire technology in the connection cable to obtain high levels of accuracy in industrial and laboratory applications.
With a strong, corrosion-resistant, AISI 316 stainless steel construction, the HI768A probe is able to measure samples up to 350℃ (622℉).
