The calculation of thermowells for temperature measuring points will be made on the basis of the ASME PTC 19.3 TW-2010 standard from this year on. An updated program will therefore be needed. The new standard enables significant improvements in respect of flexibility and safety. As a member of the ASME Performance Test Codes 19.3 working group WIKA contributed to the standard and already offers, free-of-charge, such a program tool to registered users to its website. Based around Excel, the program takes into account the widest range of thermowell designs as well as the multidimensional vibration excitation of the thermowell due to the Kármán vortex street.
