Brady Debuts Temperature Indicating Labels for Equipment Temperature Monitoring
Press release date: February 8, 2010
Heat sensor labels provide cost-effective way to monitor and record equipment temperature
Milwaukee, WI - Brady Worldwide, Inc. has introduced a new series of temperature indicating labels that can permanently document the temperature levels of a piece of equipment during operation. The irreversible temperature indicating labels are a quick, easy and cost-effective solution for monitoring the temperature of equipment in the motor, aerospace, laboratory, pharmaceutical and computer/electronics industries.
o Heat sensor labels provide continuous temperature monitoring, permanent recording
Brady's new temperature indicating labels are designed to provide a permanent record of temperature levels for a piece of equipment. The labels are placed directly onto the equipment; when the equipment reaches a certain temperature, the white area of the label will turn irreversibly black. This color change provides clear evidence of the highest temperature attained for that piece of equipment.
Temperature indicating labels can be used to monitor the temperature of equipment as part of a total preventative maintenance solution. They are commonly used on pieces of equipment that move or rotate, such as electric motors, transformers, brakes, pumps, batteries, circuit boards and boilers.
o Low profile labels provide continuous, uninterrupted temperature monitoring
Because Brady's temperature indicating labels have a low profile, they can be applied on many components and surfaces where typical electronic temperature recording instruments can not feasibly reach. Ideal for temporary installations, these temperature labels provide a non-intrusive labeling solution that is much more practical than installing a costly monitoring system for only a short period of time.
Unlike other temperature recording systems that may be interrupted from main power loss or dead batteries, Brady's temperature indicating labels provide continuous, reliable temperature monitoring without human supervision. They have a strong adhesive that can stick to any type of surface; it can withstand harsh environments and stick to dirty or uneven surfaces. The labels also feature large reading fields that provide for maximum visibility from a distance.
The temperature indicating labels are available in four different legend types, including single level temperature labels, four-level temperature labels and six-level temperature labels.
