Measuring of the total temperatures of the flowing medium is one of the pivotal points in the development when a new compressor stages are tested. Measurements conducted on the test compressor indicated that in the specific cases the measured temperature can be affected by the temperature of the walls which hold thermocouple probe. By implication of this observed fact, the preliminary study about this phenomenon was investigated. It was considered the influence of the heat conduction in the body of the probe and in the thermocouples. The main aim of the study was to examine the properties and the behaviour of the thermocouple probes in various working regimes. The preliminary study was focused on the development of the tools that can be used for complex solution of the problem by using of measured data. The results of this study might help to correct measured data in the case of skewed measurements affected by surroundings of the thermocouple probes.
