RTD temperature measurement

I wonder what is the right way to connect kind of RTD chip (PT100) to round metal tube.

Glue? Epoxy? May be something else?


There are commercially available thermally conductive epoxies (google will find them)

Although I haven't seen ever seen anyone use baling twine, I have seen these used to secure an RTD to the outside of a pipe:
hose clamp, wire, RTD wedged under steam heat trace pipe/tubing, epoxy, plumber's putty
