4000–5000 R Temperature Surveys in Mach 0.2–0.6 Hydrocarbon Hot Gas Streams 630367

This paper discusses five different methods for measuring the gas stream temperature from a burner using a hydrocarbon fuel, air, and oxygen. Tests were made with a single shielded BeO probe, a bare wire iridium -- 60% rhodium/iridium couple, a tantalum triple shielded platinum -- 10% rhodium/platinum thermocouple, the sodium line reversed technique, and a watercooled total enthalpy probe. The most serviceable system proved to be the bare wire iridium -- 60% rhodium/iridium couple, particularly for carrying out stream surveys where relative, rather than true temperatures, are of primary concern. More study is needed to establish a system for determining the true stream temperature.
