Abstract : In the patent a pneumatic thermometer is disclosed having a fluid operated oscillator in which the frequency is sensitive to temperature changes. The oscillator is of an open type and contains a stilling chamber to dampen out the oscillation. The pulses obtainable from the oscillator chambers are fed to a transducer and the output of the transducer is fed to a pulse converter to which a temperature calibrated indicator is connected.
