This three-day course (9 am to 5 pm) covers the measurement of temperature and the calibration of temperature measuring instruments. It incorporates extensive hands-on practical exercises.

Knowledge and skills

The course will provide you with the knowledge and skills:

  • to understand the principles of operation of common temperature sensors and their instrumentation, especially thermocouples and resistance, radiation and liquid-in-glass thermometers
  • to employ suitable processes for calibrating and using temperature measurement equipment 
  • to identify various sources of error that affect temperature measurements
  • to develop the technical understanding required to become a NATA signatory

Topics

The topics covered include:
  • physics of temperature measurement
  • temperature scale, traceability and international standards
  • thermocouple electromotive force, measurement and calibration 
  • properties of thermocouples and systematic errors
  • infrared and general radiation thermometry and their application
  • errors and calibration in radiation thermometry
  • calibration baths and furnaces
  • digital thermometers 
  • resistance thermometry: associated errors and calibration 
  • enclosure testing (multi-site measurements)
  • liquid-in-glass thermometry
  • estimating measurement uncertainty
  • extensive hands-on practical exercises in measurement

Past Attendees have said...
