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
- 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
