| SKF introduces new laser-sighted
SKF Maintenance Products, a division of the SKF Group, has
extended its range of measuring instruments with the introduction
of its new SKF ThermoLaser, TMTL 260, a laser-sighted non-contact
thermometer. Developed to further enhance trouble free operation,
this addition to SKF's range of instruments will be welcomed
in all industries where preventive maintenance and condition
monitoring is common practice.
Accurate bearings and machinery's temperature monitoring provides
maintenance engineers with valuable information about an application's
operating conditions, allowing them to intervene before problems
occur. The new SKF ThermoLaser measures objects' temperature
accurately using an infrared detector. Additionally, the SKF
ThermoLaser allows temperature measurement where contact with
a conventional temperature probe should be avoided in order
to prevent surface contamination. Furthermore, the SKF ThermoLaser
facilitates temperature measuring from a safe distance, making
contact with moving parts or hot surfaces unnecessary.
The new SKF ThermoLaser is user friendly; you simply it aim
at the object, pull the trigger and read the temperature displayed
on its large, backlit Liquid Crystal Display (LCD). The temperature
reading can be displayed in either Celsius or Fahrenheit,
which can be held for 7 seconds after the ThermoLaser's trigger
is released. Lightweight and compact, the new SKF ThermoLaser
utilises advanced class II laser beam for accurate aiming.
The optics of the ThermoLaser sense emitted (E), reflected
(R) and transmitted (T) energy, which is collected and focused
onto an infrared detector. The ThermoLaser's electronics translate
the collected information into a temperature reading, which
is displayed on the unit's large backlit LCD.
The new SKF ThermoLaser measures temperature accurately and
safely making it suitable for a wide variety of applications
within the engineering, industrial, electrical, automotive
and food industries.
