Abstract: This work presents an investigation of the thermoelectric properties of the Type S, Type R and Pt/Pd thermocouples up to high temperature using eutectic fixed points, including evaluation of the fixed-points EMF, thermoelectric inhomogeneity and repeatability of these thermocouples. All used thermocouples were assembled and prepared using NIS-Egypt capabilities according to the international recommendation. This work can provide information either on the behavior of the mentioned thermocouples at high temperature eutectic fixed points using and its proper usage for the precise measurement of temperature in this temperature range.


Keywords: Thermocouples, Eutectic fixed points, Thermoelectric properties.
