  • Why do I need an accurate thermometer?
    Question by: admin on 2018-09-05 11:56:31

    These days, all industries have legal requirements and regulations that they need to meet. Many of these, within the food catering/manufacture/retail industry and the facilities management industry especially, are based around temperature. Food served at the wrong temperature can be life threatening to a consumer, and water that is stored at the wrong temperature can be a breeding ground for the deadly legionella bacteria. Within manufacturing as well, there is a fine line between the right temperature, and one which will spoil an entire batch or product. In scientific applications, accurate thermometers are even more important, as temperature must be controlled extremely strictly. With this in mind, a lot of industrial bodies have issued guidelines about temperature control. For food, the HACCP regulations are very strict about temperatures of chilled, cooked and stored food, and recommend a thermometer with an accuracy of ±0.5°.

  • 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 to buy a probe with my thermometer?
    Question by: admin on 2018-09-05 11:40:07

    If you don't have any kind of probe, you won't be able to use your thermometer. A thermometer, as we have established, translates a signal from a probe or sensor, therefore in order to have something to translate, you will need to plug a sensor into it. Be careful though, as some thermometers are supplied complete with probes, or have probes built-in. For example, TME's SOLO thermometer has a built-in needle probe, which is attached to, and swings out of the body of the thermometer. If you need a thermometer which you only use for one application (such as measuring core food temperature), these kinds of thermometers are a useful option. If, however, you know that you want your thermometer to measure different types of things (air and water, for example), you may want to think about a temperature kit. These offer a thermometer with (usually) more than one different type of probe, and TME offer a wide variety, tailored for different applications.

  • What is a PT100 Thermometer?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-18 13:32:20

    PT100 thermometers, also known as resistance thermometers or PRT (platinum resistance thermometers), measure temperature by correlating the electrical resistance of a resistance temperature detector (RTD) element with temperature. The element inside of a PT100 thermometer is platinum (PT), and the 100 stands for a resistance of 100Ω (ohms) at 0°C. Resistance thermometers are generally used when greater stability, accuracy and repeatability is required than is available from a thermocouple thermometer. However, PT100 thermometers cannot be used at very high temperatures (above around 500°C), so they are less useful for manufacturing processes. They also do not have as quick a response time as thermocouples. In Summary: Temperature range : Good Accuracy : Good Time Response : Poor

  • What is a thermocouple thermometer?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-18 13:22:07

    Thermocouple thermometers are the most widely used thermometer in the modern day. Thermocouples use electrical technology to show temperature. A thermocouple ‘couples’ together two different metals, one that is contained within the thermocouple thermometer, and one that forms a probe or sensor, to test the temperature of a substance or atmosphere. The difference in the temperatures of the two metals is expressed electrically through their different voltages. The temperature of the metal inside the thermocouple is already known, so the difference between the two temperatures allows us to easily deduce the temperature of the metal attached to the probe. The deduction is carried out using a microchip inside of the thermometer, and the temperature that the probe has sensed then shows on the display. Thermocouples are essential in many heating, manufacturing and electrical engineering applications, and can be found in different thermocouple types, according to the different metals used in the probes. Thermocouples have the advantage of a very fast response and large potential measurement range – from -270 to 1,800°C. TME thermocouple thermometers are compatible with several different thermocouple types (such as K/T/J/R/N/E/S). Most TME probes are in T type (for food applications) or K type (for non-food application), although we do manufacture probes in all different thermocouple types. In Summary ( Type T Thermocouple) Temperature range : Good Accuracy : Good Time Response : Good

  • My thermometer is showing an incorrect temperature, what should I do?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-15 14:19:27

    If your thermometer is showing a temperature that you know to be incorrect, the first thing that you should do is ensure that it is set to the correct thermocouple type, as having a thermometer set to a different thermocouple type to your probe can result in an incorrect reading. Loosely speaking, if you probe has a green lead or plug, it is a K type thermocouple, and if it has a brown lead or plug, it is a T type thermocouple. Ensure that your thermometer is set to the same thermocouple type. If you are sure that your thermometer is set to the correct thermocouple type, but it is still showing an incorrect temperature, the next best thing to do is to try to use it with another probe (if you have one). If you plug a different probe into the thermometer and the reading is now correct, the likelihood is that there is a fault with your probe, not your thermometer. However, if you have tried both of these steps and your thermometer is still showing an incorrect reading, you can phone or email us to set up a repair.

  • I need a certificate of calibration for my thermometer, what should I do?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-15 13:20:45

    TME are happy to issue a certificate of calibration for your thermometer. You will need to send your thermometer back to our Production Department with a note explaining that you require a certificate of calibration, and also listing the temperature points that you would like it to be calibrated at. These usually comprise of some of the critical temperatures that you need for your thermometers’ application. For example, if you are testing for legionella, your critical temperatures will be 20°C for cold water and 50 or 55°C for hot water. You might also want to calibrate at 0°C and at the upper limit of your measurement range, such as 100°C. Generating a calibration certificate can be a lengthy process, as the thermometer needs to be calibrated and several points, and so our charges are: MM2000, MM7000, CA2005 and Solo Series of Handhelds = £35 The 4000, 5000 and 6000 Series of Large Display and Bench Instruments = £55 Your EHO might want you to have your thermometer re-calibrated yearly.

  • Can I send my thermometer away to be calibrated?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-15 13:03:22

    You can. TME offer a repair/calibration service, which is covered by the Thermometer for Life guarantee that comes with your thermometer, and should cost £35 for a MM2000 series thermometer, or £55 for a MM7000 series thermometer. You can see proof of this calibration as the sticker on the inside battery compartment of your thermometer will be updated and replaced. Please remember that this service will ensure calibration of your thermometer, but will not include a certificate of calibration, as generating the certificate is a different process – Please refer to the FAQ ‘I need a certificate of calibration for my thermometer, what should I do?’ To have your thermometer calibrated/repaired, simply send the thermometer back to our Production Department with a note explaining what it is that you require.

  • How do I calibrate my thermometer?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-15 12:44:16

    To test the calibration of your thermometer yourself, prepare a solution of ice and water, and insert your probe into it. Your thermometer should read 0°C. If it is out of calibration, firstly try using a different probe, just in case it is your probe that is faulty, and if that doesn’t make a difference, contact us for advice – you may need to send your thermometer back for a repair/calibration.
