Temperature sensor: Free “Worm” for you to test

By Control Engineering Staff October 18, 2007

In the July issue of this newsletter, we ran a product release about a new flexible temperature sensor from Moore Industries . The company has found that once customers try the device and understand its capabilities, they buy more. With that in mind, Moore is now offering one for you to try, free.

The offer includes a choice of a thermocouple or RTD sensor, 24 in. of extension wire, and an installation kit with all the necessary mounting components, including a spring, spacers and a clip. The free Worm sensor will fit into virtually all new or existing thermowells with a 0.260 in. ID. To obtain a free Worm sensor, go to Moore’s special Website, and fill out the form .

Because the Worm is a flexible sensor, it can fit into existing thermowells that have problems, such as caked debris or those that are “sagging” from exposure to extreme heat. In many cases, conventional rigid sensors cannot be installed, and the thermowell itself has to be replaced.

“We are convinced that users will buy Worm sensors once they realize how versatile and accurate they are, and how much they can save them in maintenance time and spare parts inventories,” says Scott Saunders, vice president of sales and marketing at Moore Industries. “The Worm sells itself, once a user gives it a try. For that reason, we are offering a free Worm sensor to any customer that is interested in solving their sensor headaches.”
