Temperature measurement: Modern measuring instruments for every field
In measuring technology, scarcely any other value is measured as often as temperature. However, this measurement parameter can only be determined objectively if a temperature measuring instrument suitable for the respective application is available. On plants and machines, temperatures can only be measured with a thermometer; manual sampling would be too risky and, most notably, not sufficiently meaningful. Various thermometers which display the temperature in degrees Celsius, Kelvin or Fahrenheit are available from Testo.These measure using extremely sensitive sensors and display the measurement results digitally.
Testo thermometers offer these advantages:
- Precise measurement and clear presentation of data
- Display in different units possible (Celsius, Kelvin, Fahrenheit)
- High-sensitivity sensors
- Various temperature probes
- Different types of thermometers for every purpose
Measuring instruments for temperature measurement
Reliable and precise non-contact temperature measurement from a distance.
Surface temperature measuring instruments
Temperature measuring instruments with fixed or exchangeable probes for surface temperatures.
Air temperature measuring instruments
Precise temperature meter for air temperatures.
Measure temperatures in solid or semi-solid media.
For temperature measurement in liquids. Can also be used in aggressive media.
Temperature measuring strips
The really economical alternative to the temperature meter.
Visualize temperatures. Ideal for maintenance, the building trade and heating engineering.
Temperature data logger
Practical aids for temperature monitoring.
Where do you want to measure temperature?
Temperature measuring instrument: Can handle measurements in all media
While in the private sector only the room temperature is usually continually monitored or a weather station displays the outside temperatures as well, in the industrial, food technology or scientific sectors other temperatures are measured and evaluated. Here, it must be possible to measure the temperatures in different media. This means that it needs to be determined in gaseous, solid and semi-solid or viscoplastic media. Immersion probes are used for measuring the temperature in liquid materials. These measure temperatures in neutral solutions such as water, as well as in other media. If you wish to be particularly economical, opt for temperature measuring strips, which indicate the temperature change on a scale. The infrared camera for temperature measurement is particularly helpful in building technology or for the maintenance and repair of machines and systems. This indicates different heat ranges and is also called a thermal imager. With its sensors, it makes use of thermographic findings and displays even the smallest temperature differences. The following areas also rely on efficient temperature measurement, the results of which can be displayed digitally and evaluated thanks to the Smart Probes app:
- Inspection of food and compliance with the cold chain
- Monitoring refrigerated transportation
- Temperature measurement on surfaces
- Measurement of centres of flow in flue gas pipes and chimneys
- Temperature measurement to control the heating function
Temperature measurement: Instruments that can handle data recording
Measuring temperature is just one part of working with the temperature parameter. It is important to store and evaluate the collected data, to share it with other team members or maintenance engineers if necessary. This is where the temperature data loggers come in, which have been designed precisely for this purpose. These instruments are ideally suited for the long-term monitoring of temperatures. These record the temperatures, but there is also a focus on humidity data, depending on the data logger. Data loggers are used in catering, as well as in the food sector, in pharmacy and in the storage rooms of clinics and pharmacies.
In short: Wherever temperature plays an important role and needs to be monitored over the long term, modern data loggers such as Testo's instruments are in demand.
Thermometers: Differences between measuring instruments
Temperature measurement can be carried out using a variety of thermometers and probes, the choice of which depends on the required application. A surface temperature probe is particularly suitable for measuring surface temperatures on different media. A penetration probe is used, among other things, in the preparation of food or other semi-solid media, and the associated necessary monitoring of the core temperature. Infrared thermometers measure without contact, and also over longer distances, so you can still measure barely accessible machines or locations accurately. Interchangeable probes allow you to use a thermometer for different media and to measure the temperature in these.
Digital thermometers: Precise display of readings
Digital thermometers prove extremely practical for temperature measurement on a daily basis thanks to their large display. The advantages offered by this type of temperature measuring instrument include the following:
- Large, easy-to-read display
- Illuminated display for working in twilight and darkness
- Auto-Hold function
State-of-the-art measuring instruments
With the Smart Probes, Testo offers temperature measurement that is cutting-edge. The temperature data is measured and stored via smartphone thermometer. The values can be transferred to the app via Bluetooth, which incidentally is free to use. With the aid of the app, an evaluation of the temperature measurement takes place, whereby the collected data can be presented in table or diagram form. Thus, changes can be seen straight away and immediate action can be taken if needed. In addition to the temperature measurement, the Smart Probes app enables other data such as pressure or humidity information to be collected. A total of eight measuring instruments are available, whose measured data can be forwarded to the app. Testo therefore offers all heating, refrigeration and air-conditioning technicians cutting-edge tools, facilitating efficient working methods in every company in these sectors.
