Thermocouples and Their Importance in Today's Global Industries by Precision
Many different aspects need to be considered in the selection of an appropriate thermocouple for a specific application. Some of the factors include chemical resistance, temperature range, vibration and abrasion resistance, and installation requirements.

Designing for Thermocouples and IC Temperature Sensors
Thermocouples are the most expensive temperature measurement device. They are used in extreme environments such as high temperature ranges that would otherwise melt your analog temperature ICs. However, unlike analog temperature ICs, …

Query on thermocouples?

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Query by Blain Rinehart: Question on thermocouples?
I understand that thermocouples are extremely inefficient. I was wanting to construct a solar trough, but as an alternative of operating a pipe containing a fluid for a heat exchanger, I wanted to directly have the ‘hot’ wire in the concentrated solar line, and have the ‘cold’ wire just outside with heat sinks on it. Would it be able to make sufficient electricity to do something, or need to I stick with a stirling engine to power a generator?
