Expert’s answer: Rosemount 1151 temperature issues
Rosemount 1151 temperature issues? Yeah, those exist. All manufacturers build their tools for specific applications. That means their devices provide the most accuracy within certain ranges of temperature, humidity, pressure, and other factors.
When people ask how long a device will work outside of recommended ranges, we can only give an estimate. Thus, we suggest staying inside the range. If you expose your device to extreme temperatures, for example, then you may damage it or decrease the life of the device.
In regards to measurements, you’ll find that the accuracy in the manual often doesn’t match what you have in the field. If you want to find the real efficiency in your process measurement, read this article.
