AbstractThis paper presents the laboratory calibration results of 16 commercially available thermal conductivitysensors. The calibration results reveal the systematic variations in responses amongst the sensors. In this way, the accuracy and possible errors can be estimated. A series of average calibration suction values and relationships were suggested for laboratory calibration and fitting of data for this type of sensor.
