| SKF introduces new
SKF Maintenance Products, a division of the SKF Group, has
extended its range of measuring instruments with the introduction
of its new SKF ThermoPen, TMTP 200, a general-purpose, pocketsize
contact thermometer. Developed to further enhance trouble
free operation, this latest addition to SKF's range of instruments
will be welcomed by all maintenance engineers performing preventive
maintenance and condition monitoring.
The temperature of an application in operation can provide
maintenance engineers with valuable information about the
condition of the application's machinery and bearings. Accurate
temperature measurement allows the maintenance engineers to
intervene before equipment failure occurs due to, for example,
over-heating. The new SKF ThermoPen's sturdy flexible probe
tip helps ensure effective surface contact for accurate temperature
measurement. The SKF ThermoPen measures temperatures ranging
from -40 캜 (-40 캟) up to 200 캜 (392 캟). Using one button,
temperature reading in either 캜 or 캟 can be selected. Additionally,
the SKF ThermoPen is equipped with a MAX function, which allows
the user to hold the maximum temperature measured.
With an average battery life of 4,000 hours and an automatic
switch-off function after five minutes, the SKF ThermoPen's
power consumption is extremely low. The SKF ThermoPen is not
only compact and ergonomically designed, but also extremely
durable with high water and drop resistant, rated IP 65.In
addition, its integrated rubber grip offers extra sturdiness.
SKF supplies its new ThermoPen with a handy pouch with belt
clip for additional protection and portability.
The new SKF ThermoPen measures a wide temperature range accurately
and safely making it suitable for a wide variety of applications
within the engineering, industrial, electrical and automotive.

engineering company SKF, the world's leading supplier of products,
