May 1, 2012 - Article by Ryan Stockinger: Both are suitable technologies for a myriad of industrial cooling applications, but in some applications one may work better than the other.
Process cooling encompasses hundreds of applications that require careful attention when selecting the best temperature control components to complement the equipment design and process. For instance, in industrial refrigeration, temperature sensors are used to monitor the performance of the refrigeration circuit, heating modules and fluid temperature safeties. This article compares two popular temperature sensor styles - the RTD and the thermistor - and describe their application benefits, common uses, control methodology and relative costs.
