An exhaust gas temperature gauge is device that, as the name suggests, is used to gauge the temperature of an exhaust gas, typically, of an internal combustion engine. It provides an indication to the driver that the engine could be overheating and needs to be checked. An exhaust gas temperature gauge is also known as an EGT gauge or a pyrometer gauge. It comprises a thermocouple or a temperature sensing probe and is designed to detect high temperatures. The gases typically emitted from vehicles include nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide and other particulate matter and pollutants such as sulphur dioxide and ammonia. An exhaust gas temperature gauge also provides an indication of the health of an engine.
