  • When is it important to use a thermometer?
    Question by: admin on 2018-09-05 11:54:29

    There are many different applications which require the use of a thermometer, from basic everyday tasks such as cooking or testing family members for a fever, to checking fridge/freezer/oven temperature, measuring water temperature to help prevent outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease, reaching critical temperatures in a manufacturing process, maintaining temperatures during distribution of food products, tyre production, oil production, laboratory testing, facilities/building management and more. The risks of not having a thermometer for these applications vary from a burnt dinner to patients contracting a life-threatening disease.

  • What is the difference between a thermometer and a probe?
    Question by: admin on 2018-09-05 11:51:38

    Simply put, the thermometer is the ‘box’, where you will see a screen that displays measurements, and the probe is the thing connected to it. So the probe (or sensor), senses the temperature and sends a signal to the thermometer, which translates it into a figure (usually °C or °F) and displays it. Probes can come in many different varieties which are designed to suit a specific application (such as needle probes, flat food probes, air probes etc). Thermometers, too, can have many different applications in addition to displaying a temperature reading. Some thermometers have a hold function, or can calibrate other thermometers, scan barcodes or wirelessly send temperature readings to other electronic equipment such as PCs or PDAs.

  • How often should I calibrate my thermometer?
    Question by: admin on 2018-09-05 11:45:58

    Different Environmental Health Officers and HACCP Officers will require different levels of calibration. You should always follow the advice of your EHO on calibration. At TME, we are happy for the calibration of thermometers to be tested weekly, which you can do yourself. Most EHOs advise a yearly re-calibration of your thermometer and/or probe, which would consist of sending your thermometer away to be calibrated.

  • Do I need a waterproof thermometer to use the KM08 Shower Probe?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-21 12:26:07

    Whilst it’s not essential, we would always recommend a waterproof thermometer for all water temperature testing work. TME’s MM2008 Legionella Thermometer is waterproof to IP68 and has built-in one and two minute timers for H/C running times.

  • Do I have to stand in the shower to use the KM08 probe?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-21 12:24:06

    The length of the probe stem means that in most cases you should be able to stand outside the shower cubicle. The angle of the cup together with the design of the probe handle means that water shouldn’t run down your arm when using the probe.

  • When using the KM08 probe, can I fill the cup with water, remove the probe from the water stream and then take a temperature reading?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-21 12:21:15

    No, you must hold the cup in the water stream whilst reading the temperature.

  • How do I use the KM08 Shower Temperature Probe?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-21 12:15:47

    Plug the probe into a K-type digital thermometer (we recommend our MM2008 waterproof model with built-in timer for H&C running times). Turn on the shower and hold the probe cup just below the showerhead ensuring the cup continuously overflows. Keep the cup in the water stream until the temperature settles or the desired temperature is reached.

  • Why is the KM08 Shower temperature Probe better for shower temperature measurement than a standard immersion probe?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-21 12:12:28

    The KM08 Shower Probe has been carefully designed to give a fast, accurate temperature reading in showers whilst keeping your arm dry. The small cup at the end collects and circulates water around the built-in temperature sensor. This gives a much more reliable temperature measurement than holding a standard probe in the shower spray. The angle of the cup, length of the probe stem and the handle design help to keep the operator dry.

  • What is Legionnaires’ disease?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-20 11:15:34

    Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal illness caused by the legionella bacterium, which may be present in tepid water and is spread by inhalation of fine water droplets or spray.

  • I regularly need to replace my thermometers and probes, can I set up a service contract to cover the cost?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-18 12:41:03

    If you have purchased a large number of TME thermometers/probes, and are likely to have a high turnover of breakages, we offer a swap service which charges a set monthly rate in return for an unlimited number of swaps. We can offer this on a next day basis. If you are interested in the swap system, please phone or email TME for advice on how best to set it up.

  • What is the warranty on my probe?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-18 10:51:17

    TME probes do not come with a warranty, however, if there is a fault in our manufacturing process we will of course replace for free.

  • Can I calibrate a probe?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-15 13:58:39

    Yes. We can produce a calibration certificate for a probe to either the four standard points (for food applications: -20, 0, +20 & 80 C, for Legionella applications: 0, 20, 55 & 100 C) or to four points of your choosing. Please note: for probes being returned to us for calibration, whilst it is possible to produce a certificate for a probe, we will not be able to adjust any errors found during the test.

  • Can I get a calibration certificate on this item?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-15 09:53:42

    Yes. This would be for our standard UKAS traceable certificate. Prices start at £35.00. Please email with the four temperature points required.
