Standard Practice for Determination of Minimum Immersion Depth and Assessment of Temperature Sensor Measurement Drift
|Publication Date:||1 April 2015|
This practice describes a two procedures for use with temperature measurement devices. Methodology is described for determining minimum immersion depth for thermal sensors, in particular RTDs or similar temperature sensors. Included is a procedure for consistently preparing a reference bath for the purpose of monitoring measurement drift of thermal sensors such as liquid-in-glass or digital contact thermometers.
This practice focuses on temperature measurement drift in a laboratory. If the user requires greater measurement accuracy, then they should follow the instructions in Practice E563.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
