Description

Temperature gauges are a good choice for local temperature reading close to the process. They are reliable, need no external power supply and allow constant process monitoring.

Bourdon mechanical temperature measurement solutions include bi-metal thermometers with various connections, stem diameters and lengths for local reading and particularly versatile gas filled thermometers for local and remote reading when combined with capillaries of up to 30 m in length.

Bourdon dial thermometers guarantee accurate reading for temperature as low as -200°C and up to 800°C. Thermometers with bimetal technology are available with a vertical, horizontal or every angle stem and a maximum length of 1000 mm.

Our high quality dial thermometers - class 1 according to EN 13190 - are designed and manufactured with your application in mind. Whether HVAC, Oil and Gas, food and beverage, water treatment, nuclear power stations, chemical and petrochemical plants, at Bourdon we have the right solution for you.

100 years of success. The former Haenni Instruments AG - founded in 1919 - belongs to the Baumer Group since 2005 and has been developed into a modern production facility. The Swiss factory is a dedicated competence center for temperature measurement solutions.

Technology

Bourdon dial thermometers are using 2 operating principles: bimetal and gas expansion.

The measuring element of bimetal thermometer is a helically bent "bimetal" strip having metals with different coefficients of expansion. Temperature changes result in a proportional bending of the bimetal strip. One end side of the bimetal is fixed to the thermometer stem, the pointer is mounted to the other end side to transfer the circular rotating movement to the dial.

Bimetal thermometers can be used for most standard applications.

Gas filled thermometers use the gas expansion principle. The measuring system is filled with a neutral gas, which is expanding under the influence of temperature changes on the sensitive part of the stem. This pressure increase leads to a deflection of the end of a Bourdon tube, which is converted by a movement into a rotation of the pointer.

Gas filled thermometers are used for especially high or low temperature, remote mounting with capillary, applications with contacts or installations with vibrations.
