What are some of the benefits to using an Exhaust Gas Thermocouple EGT?
Operation at peak EGT, particularly on long runs like in road racing or circle tracks, will give a fuel savings meaning less pitting for fuel (increased range) as well as less likelihood of spark plug fouling. Temperature variations will occur between in between individual cylinders when using a probe for every cylinder. Typical variations of about 100 degree F between each individual cylinder can be observed with fuel injection systems, and about 200 degree F with conventional carburetion. Carburetion variation is greater because the atomization of the fuel is not as effective when compared with fuel injectors. In colder air temperatures, the mixture atomization is poorer for both fuel injected and carbureted engines. However, with the carburetor, the fuel/air ration and atomization is less effective resulting in larger temperature variations when comparing individual cylinders.
Where is the best place to install the EGT probe?
Should I Install the EGT probe before or after the Turbo?
At what depth should I install the EGT probe?
What makes your probes better than the ones I see from your competition and lower priced overseas thermocouple sensors?
What is the accuracy of the EGT probe?
I only want to purchase and install one EGT probe. If I place only one EGT probe in the collector will I get an average temperature across all of the cylinders?
My temperature reading on the meter is going down instead of up. Can you help me?
When installed, are your EGT probes isolated from or are they common earthed to the exhaust manifold?
What is the maximum length I can extend the EGT probe's cable?
Can I shorten the EGT probe's cable or will that mess up the accuracy because the ohms of the wire won't be the same?
How can the EGT Probe or CHT Sensor Cable be Extended?
Do these EGT probes come with a calibration sheet or chart?
Here are some references:
Is the EGT probe a thermocouple, RTD, or thermistor?
Is the voltage output from the EGT probe linear to the temperature?
So how do I linearize the output from the EGT probe so my data logger can read it?
My diesel engine runs normally at 720 degrees Celsius. How long do you estimate your sensor will last in this environment?
I have a Mercedes turbo diesel and my idea is to monitor both the exhaust temperature and the temperature of the incoming air in the intake manifold. Is there enough range on your EGT probe to measure also lower temperatures (min. about -10 Celsius)?
What is the largest diameter the muffler clamp will fit?
I was wondering if you could guide me to where I may find some charts referencing EGT's.
What is “cold junction compensation”?
How do I return an EGT Thermocouples and or Electronics?
