Industrial temperature sensors are typically calibrated by placing them in a stable temperature source (dry-well, furnace, calibration bath) and comparing their output to a reference standard probe connected to a precision digital thermometer. They may be multi-channel, handheld, or bench top thermometers. Most need to be mated with one of many available PRTs, thermistors, or thermocouples.
A digital substitute for your mercury-in-glass thermometers! Accurate and repeatable to ± 0.05 °C over its full range, the PANRAN PR710 Thermometer is the new “gold standard" of industrial temperature calibration. Whether working outdoors in environments where potentially explosive gases may be present or on the floor of a processing plant, the intrinsically-safe, battery operated, portable reference thermometer is designed to go where you work.

Why calibrate process temperature sensors?
Because temperature greatly effects the accuracy of a volumetric measurement, process manufacturers of chemical, pharmaceutical, food or petroleum products require accurate temperature measurements—especially for processes where quality or custody transfer are regulated by government agencies. Since all temperature sensors are subject to drift with time, regular calibration or verification against a reliable reference thermometer is required. Finding a reference thermometer that is accurate, repeatable and robust, however, can be challenging.
