What is a thermocoupler?

Answer: The thermocoupler system completes the heat exchanger system by allowing components other than exchange processes to connect to one or more exchange processes to represent a thermal coupling. This system is different from the exchanger system: two exchange processes cannot be connected by a thermocoupler. This system has a number of benefits, because it can be used to represent many thermocouplers that do not constitute a heat exchange in the traditional sense, like for example cooling the walls of the combustion chamber of a reciprocating engine, cooled compression, and above all supply or removal of heat from the multi-functional external components.
