Digital Thermometer Replaces Mercury-In-Glass
Tel-Tru Manufacturing Company announced the Digi-Tel Electronic Thermometer Series, an accurate and safe alternative to traditional, industrial mercury-in-glass thermometers. Digi-Tel thermometers are optimized for use in demanding food processing, dairy engineering and process industry environments. They meet FDA Rule 21 CFR 113.40 requirements for temperature indicators used in retorts and the requirements of the Pasteurized Milk Ordinance for dairy applications.
The Digi-Tel series is designed to meet a variety of temperature measuring applications. The all stainless steel models are built into 5-inch diameter cases with a 1-inch high digital display and a temperature range of -70 to 750°F (or -60 to 400°C). A unit with a 4.5-inch diameter polypropylene wall mounted housing and remote sensor is also available. Stem lengths range from 2-½ inches to 24 inches, with a variety of threaded and sanitary fittings.
Each Digi-Tel thermometer is sold with an NIST traceable calibration certificate. All models meet stringent environmental specifications, according to the company. The Digi-Tel series also includes a convenient PC-based calibration software tool, which allows the user to adjust the number of significant digits on the digital display and to calibrate the unit in the field.
