‘We need to put up with it’: Resistance thermometers to replace gas detectors

In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, a large-scale, multi-national project called the National Resistance Temperature Detector Project (NRTDDP) has begun to operate.Its aim is to use thermometers in homes and buildings to identify whether someone is exposed to the heat of a given room.It also aims to provide information...

How to determine if your old smoke detectors work

How do you know if your smoke detectors are working?That’s what scientists are now trying to figure out.The smoke detectors they’re testing have been around for years and have become so popular that they’re used in almost every home.They’re also a good indication of how much damage a natural...

When the ‘resistance temperature’ detector gets old

The Resistance Temperature Detector is a useful device for anyone who’s worried about their home getting too warm.It is made up of a series of sensors that monitor the temperature of a room and automatically switches to a lower temperature if the room is hotter than the desired temperature.It...

What’s the resistance temperature?

The resistance temperature is the temperature at which a material can’t be heated or cooled by the passage of heat or electricity.The lower the resistance, the hotter it gets.Resistance temperature is a key measurement for thermocouples, which can be used to determine the strength of a material.“When you make...
