KS20-S - High-Speed Dual Probe 115mm x 12mm
KS20-S Dual Purpose probe designed for monitoring both surface and immersion temperatures. This probe features a 'crossed' ribbon sensor offering superior strength and speed when compared to a single band version.
• Thermocouple Type - K
• Accuracy - Class I (±1.5°C ±0.25%)
• Measurement Range: -50 to 250°C
• Stem Length – 115mm
• Stem diameter at tip – 12mm
• Cable Length - 2 meters
• Plug Type - Moulded 2 pin
• A robust, entirely waterproof design for Legionella Water Monitoring.
• Only requires light pressure to give a true reading
Note: This probe is suitable for smooth clean surfaces. If used on an uneven surface there is a risk that the band will be weakened and deformed.
Requires: A digital thermocouple thermometer.
• For General Use we recommend the TME MM2000 Digital Handheld Thermocouple Thermometer
• For Legionella Use we recommend the TME MM2008 Digital Handheld with Integral Timer
• For Next Generation Bar Code Scanning Temperature Monitoring we recommend the TME MM7000-2D ThermoBarScan Thermometer

Which TME thermometers are compatible with the KS20-S?Question by: admin on 2019-01-04 11:55:58
All of our Thermocouple Thermometers are compatible with the KS20-S. These include the MM2000, MM2010, MM2020, MM2030 Simulator, MM2008 Legionella Thermometer and The MM7000 & 7100 range of Barcode Thermometers.Answer by: admin on 2019-01-04 11:55:58
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.Answer by: admin on 2018-10-03 01:30:05
Can I use the KS20-S to take temperature of running water in a shower?Question by: admin on 2018-09-05 11:34:24
Whilst the KS20-S is completely waterproof, we would recommend our KM08 Shower Probe which has been specially designed to overcome the problem of temperature loss when taking shower temperatures.Answer by: admin on 2018-09-05 11:34:24
What is the life expectancy of the KS20-S?Question by: admin on 2018-06-21 12:59:12
Longevity will depend on a number of factors including frequency of use, environmental conditions and correct application (see 'How do I use the KS20-S to take surface temperature of a water pipe?').Answer by: admin on 2018-06-21 12:59:12
How do I use the KS20-S to take temperature of running water at a tap?Question by: admin on 2018-06-21 12:44:34
Connect the probe to your thermometer as above. Place the end of the probe into the water stream ensuring the water is flowing directly onto the red area at the tip. You will need to hold the probe at a shallow angle to achieve this. Record temperature when reading has stabilised.Answer by: admin on 2018-09-05 10:58:34
How do I use the KS20-S to take surface temperature of a water pipe?Question by: admin on 2018-06-21 12:42:15
First, remove the protective cap and plug the probe into your thermometer. Ensure the thermometer is set to 'K'- type thermocouple. Ensure the pipe surface is smooth and free of dirt or debris. Using only minimal pressure, hold the tip of the probe squarely against the surface. Avoid moving or rotating the probe whilst in contact with the surface and do not apply pressure or force as this may damage the sensor. Record temperature when the reading has stabilised.Answer by: admin on 2018-09-05 10:53:57
What probes will I need for water temperature testing?Question by: admin on 2018-06-20 13:19:29
You will need an immersion probe for running water (KM03), and a surface probe for pipe surface temperatures (KS07). Alternatively, choose one of our excellent dual probes which do both Immersion and surface temperatures (KS20-S, KS01-S, BSKS01-S, or KS16-S). For areas that are difficult to access - ie valves or pipes, or high-traffic areas, such as school corridors, we recommend the TCWALLPORT System. This incorporates the use of fine wire probes (KA01) and a compact temperature monitoring point known as the TCWALLPORTAnswer by: admin on 2019-02-08 12:57:33
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.Answer by: admin on 2018-09-05 10:27:42
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.Answer by: admin on 2018-09-05 10:25:13
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.Answer by: admin on 2018-06-15 01:58:39
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with the four temperature points required.Answer by: admin on 2018-10-03 01:31:48
