Online thermowell sizing calculator helps simplify engineer work

Endress+Hauser introduces a free on-line thermowell calculation tool to help customers stay compliant with the new ASME PTC 19.3 TW-2010 thermowell standards.

The thermowell sizing tool calculates the thermowell’s ability to withstand stresses under given process conditions, important for safety-critical or demanding applications with high flow rates or high process pressures, particularly in the oil and gas and chemical industry.

Because a thermowell is subjected to a variety of stresses in these types of applications, typically because of in-line and transverse vibrations, it is necessary to run calculations on the thermowell design to make sure these stresses do not exceed the maximum allowable limit. Endress+Hauser’s thermowell sizing calculator gives users a safe alternative to not only thermowell failure but loss of measurement, damage to expensive equipment, and safety risks to plant personnel.
