SKF digital thermometers
SKF Maintenance Products, a division of the SKF Group, has
extended its range of measuring instruments with the introduction
of four new highly accurate digital thermometers.
The SKF ThermoPen, TMTP 200, is a user friendly, durable
pocket size thermometer. It has a wide temperature measurement
range, from -40 캜 (-40 캟) up to 200 캜 (392 캟). Its sturdy
flexible probe tip ensures effective surface contact for highly
accurate temperature measurement. The ThermoPen is dust and
water resistant with an IP rate of 65.
The SKF ThermoPen is also available in intrinsically safe
(Ex) version, TMTP 200Ex, especially designed for use in explosive
hazardous areas. The TMTP 200Ex has been tested and approved
for use in high-risk areas, such as underground as well as
surface sections of mines, Equipment-group I, category M 1.
It has also been approved for use in areas where explosive
atmospheres caused by mixtures of air and gasses, vapours
or mists are present, Equipment-group II, category 1.
The SKF ThermoLaser, TMTL 260, is a non-contact thermometer,
which utilises advanced class II laser beam and an infrared
detector for measuring temperature. It has 톋 wide measurement
range, from -18 to 260 튏 (0 to 500 튔). The ThermoLaser is
extremely user-friendly - simply aim, pull the trigger and
read the temperature on the large backlit display. No contact
with hot surfaces or moving parts, means safer, faster and
easier temperature measurement.
Additionally, the ThermoLaser allows temperature measurement
where contact with a conventional temperature probe should
be avoided to prevent surface contamination, making it ideal
to use for measuring temperature of food processing applications.
The SKF TMDT 1300 is a high accurate dual channel thermometer,
with a wide temperatures measurement range, between -50 up
to 1300 캜 (-58 to 1999 캟). The thermometer is equipped with
many functions such as hold maximum reading and difference
between temperature 1 and temperature 2.
The TMDT 1300 has an analogue output for data logging or use
in combination with a temperature recorder. A flexible rubber
sleeve protects the housing of the TMDT 1300 and its electronics
in case of impact. Retractable support allows the TMDT 1300
to stand on its own, freeing the operator's hands during temperature
