Big book temperature guide

"The Engineer's Guide to Industrial Temperature Measurement" is reported to be the go-to guide for reducing costs and improving performance. Its website states, "The Engineer’s Guide to Industrial Temperature Measurement will ensure you have the understanding you need to select the right measurement system. It will also show you how to install components correctly and maintain the system. The guide provides insight beyond sensors, transmitters and thermowells, offering technical information on the entire temperature measurement system." It includes FAQs, temperature measurement basics, engineering and design, maintenance and calibration, best practices and reference materials. It's available free-of-charge, but registration is required.
