Temperature is often one of the most measured values on board and in many cases also one of the most critical factors. An inaccurate or wrongfully positioned/designed sensor can have a huge negative effect on efficiency or operation and in worst case scenarios also lead to breakdowns or malfunctions.

The Basics of Temperature Measurement

Temperature measurements is the process of measuring a current local temperature for immediate or later usage. The most common sensor is the resistance temperature detectors (RTD’s) and the thermocouples. RTD which have higher accuracy and repeatability are slowly replacing the thermocouples in applications below 600 °C.

The RTD typically contains either platinum, nickel or copper wires, as these materials have  a positive temperature coefficient. This means that a rise in temperature results in an increased resistance. This change of resistance is then used to detect and measure the temperature changes.

Temperature sensors are used for most systems on board, the most common ones would be the engine and the surrounding equipment, tank, storage room, HVAC and stern tube system.
