Provide guidance in determining DCT probe immersion depth and monitoring temperature sensor or DCT measurement drift
The standard is needed to provide guidance to laboratory users on how to determine minimum immersion depth of a DCT probe to obtain an accurate temperature measurement. This need is driven in part by a lack of information provided with DCT probes regarding their minimum immersion depth. This standard will also provide guidance to users so they can develop procedures to monitor a DCTs measurement capability by checking the observed temperature against a reference.
