Thermocouple Protection Tubes (TCPTs) are utilised to allow continuous temperature monitoring in harsh and demanding environments for remote monitoring and process control. Choice of optimum TCPT for an application is dependent on a thorough understanding of the operating environment, characteristics of the TCPTs available and an assessment of the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of the different options, including the cost of the particular thermocouple being protected.
