Thermowells in ScrutonWell Design

In comparison with the conventional stem form, the new design reduces the excitation causing vibrations by more than 90 % (Picture: Wika)

This design dampens the excitation that leads to vibrations, which in turn can cause failures. The design is applicable to all solid-machined, barstock thermowells. The helical form of the stem is available in two versions: manufactured in a single piece or with helices welded onto it. Installation and removal are just as easy as with a standard thermowell. The design recommended when a thermowell fails the strength calculation, according to ASME PTC 19.3 TW-2010, and where other optimisation measures (shorter or stronger stem or support collar) are inappropriate. In comparison with the conventional stem form, the new design reduces vibrations by more than 90 %.
