Tech/Engineering / bimetal thermometers
English term or phrase: Filled system
Filled system thermometer bulbs may have sensitive portions from one to several inches in length. Determine the sensitive length of the bulb before choosing an insertion length. Above all, be sure that dead length, i.e., that required to pass through walls, pipe fittings, etc., is taken into account when choosing the necessary well insertion length

Explanation:
A filled-system thermometer has a bourdon tube connected to a hollow bulb by a capillary tube. The deformation of the bourdon tube depends on the pressure of the gas inside (typ. nitrogen), or on the volume of liquid that "fills" the system [hence the name].

This is also called a "filled" thermometer.

And a Bourdon tube (a.k.a. Bourdon pressure gage) is a mechanical pressure-measuring device that uses a curved or twisted metal tube, flattened in cross-section and closed, as its sensing element.
