CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURE SENSORS

The increasing need for the production of oxygen, hydrogen and other gases by low temperature separation techniques, and the production and transportation of LNG, emphasizes the importance of cryogenic (below -150 C) technology. This article deals with an important aspect of cryogenic instrumentation: the measurement of very low temperatures through diode, resistance and capacitance thermometry. These types of thermometry are explained, with their concepts and operations included in the explanation. Other types of thermometry are briefly described, and installation and application considerations are also discussed.
