The Scwika0515rutonWell from WIKA Instruments features a design 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. ScrutonWell thermowells are recommended when a thermowell fails the strength calculation, according toASMEPTC 19.3TW-2010, and where other optimisations, shorter or stronger stem or support collar, are not desirable. In comparison with the conventional stem form, the new design reduces the excitations causing vibration by more than 90 percent.
