Archaic Physical Temperature Recording Methods

November 19, 2012 by · Comment
Filed under: General, temperature monitoring 

Despite having remote temperature and environmental monitoring methods, physical temperature recording is still practiced often. An appliance called a thermometer (which most school children today don’t know about, probably) is used to measure the quantity of heat of an object or of course, its temperature.

Now, this is a practical application when it’s  a one-time thing; like when you were sick with the flu, your mom would put a thermometer in your mouth. However, when the temperature is required for constant monitoring, a remote temperature sensor would be a good choice to save on time and energy that would have otherwise been physically spent.

Temperature Monitoring: Monitoring Extreme Temperatures

Filed under: Intelligent Sensors, temperature monitoring 

Today scientists are utilizing extreme temperatures in their research. Fields studying extreme temperatures range from cryogenics to ultra-high temperature ceramics.

As technology advances, so do the the fields of sciences. From paleobotany to astrochemistry to horology, it’s really astonishing how vast the fields of science are out there.  Not only is it astonishingly vast, some fields are astonishingly cool. Cryogenicists today are combining studies in physics and engineering to observe how materials behave at very low temperatures. These labs implement thermocouple devices that read temperature levels below −180 °C (-292 °F or 93.15 K) to nearly absolute zero (O K). Branches of cryogenics include cryosurgery, cryonics (organic preservation),  cryoelectronics (superconducivity) all of which deal with low temperatures.  Read more

AC Control: Temperature and Airflow Monitoring Sensors

It’s hard to miss the feel of freezing temperatures and blasting airflow because of poor AC control in buildings– especially larger facilities like hospitals, restaurants, or usually chain businesses. There’s nothing more annoying in the summertime to go from hot and sweaty outside to needing a sweater when walking into freezing cold temperatures when you walk into a grocery store. Read more

Temperature Monitoring: Railroad Temperatures

A severe heat wave has inspired more strict regulations in monitoring temperatures of railroad tracks in Prince George, D.C. after a train derailed from the tracks. It’s been speculated by experts that the recent intense heat is to blame for warping the train tracks. This was the second time in three months that a train had deviated from the tracks due to high temperature incurred kinks. Read more

Outdoor Temperature Sensors: How hot is too hot?

Plastic MeltingWith all this buzz around global warming, you should have outdoor temperature sensors to tell you “How hot is too hot”? Lately the summer heat has been so high it’s been problematic around our office, even plastic mailboxes have been melting! Obviously, they can’t take the heat.

According to an Indiana pediatric dentist, the dental work that he does is guaranteed up to 200°F. However, these plastic mailboxes could not stand up to a triple digit heatwave. All plastics are polymers and there are different types of plastics produced. The melting point of plastics generally range anywhere between 100°C (212°F) to 260°C (500°F). Typically, plastics begin to soften around 80°C (176°F). The softer the plastic, the lower the melting point. Read more

Temperature Monitoring: Tarmac Temperatures

Filed under: Ravica News, temperature monitoring 

Temperature monitoring is not often thought of as an emergency demand. However, the weekend after July 4th turned into a well, emergency. A US Airways flight readying for its takeoff sunk into the tarmac in DC which turned into a three hour wait to become unstuck.

Asphalt is viscoelastic which describes it as having the ability to reserve its physical property from liquid to solid and solid to liquid depending on the temperature applied. In this case, the asphalt began to liquefy due to the intense heat. It has a melting point of 250°F, however the material likely has a lower melting plateau before completely liquefying.  Read more

Temperature Monitoring: The Green Information Technology (IT) Solution

While many are interested in going green to preserve the earth’s resources, others are interested in going green inspired by the too hot or too cold green information technology (green IT) solution to economize energy expenditure. Either way, the goal is the same; enter Ravica’s green IT solution. Read more
