Carbon Ceramic Sensors (CCS) for cryogenic temps

From Temati in Oxford UK


Thermal Anchoring Carbon Ceramic Thermometers

Oxford, UK — Carbon Ceramic Sensors (CCS) are produced from the latest generation of optimised tvo resistors.

Carbon Ceramic temperature sensors adhere to a single resistance vs. temperature curve and are suitable for measurements in the range 1 to 375 Kelvin in cryogenic systems.

They have excellent long term stability and repeatability of cryogenic temperature measurement, plus their robust construction provides superior performance under the harshest of conditions.

They are relatively insensitive to radiation, mechanical forces, vibration and magnetic fields.

They also are extremely thermally responsive with very low self heating, offering an unparalleled cost / performance ratio.

Available calibrated and uncalibrated for measurements from 1.5 to 375 Kelvin.

Carbon Ceramic Cryogenic Temperature Sensor Applications

Carbon Ceramic cryogenic thermometers are used in applications around the globe including:

  • monitoring of system dynamics cool-down & warm-up
  • estimating heat loads on cryostat components
  • confirmation of thermal modelling results
  • providing information on the temperature dynamics of emergency situations such as magnet quenches
  • diagnostic information to define system adjustments
  • identification of potential future failure modes

Below is a link to a paper which some colleagues at CERN presented at MT23 in July 2013. The CERN scientists ground-breaking work requires very dynamic thermometry to operate efficiently in the harshest conditions. Their test programme has demonstrated that CCS sensors mounted on kapton thermalisation pads are providing them with thermally responsive (within 5 ms – a bee???s wing flap!) accurate temperature measurements which they know will be stable throughout the considerable lifetime of their research programmes.
