Traceable® Refrigerator/Freezer Thermometer

Press release date: April 1, 2005

Applications Laboratories Manufacturing Industrial Plants Engineering Government Institutions Pollution Control Medical Facilities Chemical Processing Pharmaceutical Food Testing & Measurement Flow R & D HVAC Environmental Petroleum Control Company's new Traceable® Refrigerator/Freezer Thermometer accurately monitors temperatures in freezers, water baths, heating blocks, incubators and refrigerators with this enclosed temperature-buffered sensor. Bottle insulates sensor from rapid temperature changes when refrigerator door is open. At the touch of a button the display shows high, low or current temperatures. Minimum/maximum memory monitors high/low readings overnight, on weekends or for any time period - a significant advantage over "current reading only" glass thermometers. Range is from -58 to 158°F (-50 to 70°C) with a resolution of 0.1° and accuracy of ±1°C. The solid-state probe eliminates mercury contamination in refrigerators. Ten-foot micro cable permits refrigerator doors to close on it. The probe is sealed in a miniature bottle filled with patented glycol. Solution is GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by the FDA. It eliminates concerns about incidental contact with food or drinking water. VELCRO® and magnetic strips are provided for mounting of both thermometer and bottle sensor. Individually serial-numbered Traceable® Certificate is provided from our ISO 17025 calibration laboratory accredited by A2LA. It indicates traceability to standards provided by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology). ABS high-impact, chemical-resistant case is 2 3/4" x 4 1/4" x 3/4" and weight is 4 ounces.
