New “Stik” thermometers from Fluke Calibration are tougher and safer than mercury thermometers

Sydney, February 3, 2011 – Fluke Calibration, a global leader in calibration instrumentation and software, has introduced the 1551A Ex and 1552A Ex “Stik” Thermometers, engineered to give temperature calibration specialists the durable, intrinsically-safe digital instrument they need for precision temperature calibration.

The Fluke 1551A and 1552A “Stik” Thermometers provide a highly precise and durable digital replacement for mercury-in-glass thermometers. They are intrinsically safe (ATEX and IECEx compliant), so they can be used safely where potentially explosive gases may be present. More durable than mercury-in-glass thermometers, they can be used reliably outdoors or on the production floor.

Process manufacturers of chemical, pharmaceutical, food or petroleum products require accurate temperature measurements. Since temperature sensors are subject to drift with time, regular calibration or verification against a reliable reference thermometer is required and finding a reference thermometer that is accurate, repeatable and robust has been a challenge.
