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.Answer by: admin on 2018-10-03 01:28:00
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
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.Answer by: admin on 2018-10-03 02:13:22
How can I measure the temperature of food that is vacuum-packed for Sous Vide cooking?Question by: admin on 2018-06-20 10:44:22
Sous Vide cooking is a growing phenomenon in catering and hospitality, but it can be difficult to measure the core temperature of vacuum-packed food. TME manufactures a temperature kit especially for Sous Vide cooking. The SVK1 includes a thermometer, a super-fine needle probe and self-sealing foam tape, which allows you to measure the temperature inside a vacuum-packed bag without breaking the seal of the bag, which can be disastrous for this kind of cooking. The needle probe in this kit is just 1.5mm in diameter.Answer by: admin on 2018-06-20 10:44:22
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
Will you replace my thermometer if it is broken?Question by: admin on 2018-06-15 15:04:50
We will. Details of our Thermometer for Life guarantee can be found as a downloadable pdf on the majority of our products that are or contain a thermometer. The scheme offers a repair/replacement of your thermometer at a fixed price, for life.Answer by: admin on 2019-06-05 01:17:33
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
