The Intricacies of Temperature, Part 2

The Intricacies of Temperature, Part 2

The previous post detailed some of the more specific ways that temperature can be measured through the products offered at SRP Control.  As mentioned in that post, temperature is commonly perceived as a rather vague concept in our everyday lives.  People have a general sense that certain temperatures equate to hot and cold, but with industry, knowing the precise temperature of a given solid, liquid, or gas can be critical to maintaining proper functionality.  Here are some more of the types of gauges offered through SRP Control.

Lasers – Laser technology can be a helpful tool in measuring temperature.  Non-contact temperature measurement is important in places where contact would be impractical, impossible, or dangerous.  The Optris CT Laser uses two precise lasers that accurately measure the temperature of objects as small as 0.9mm.  The Optris LaserSight Infrared Thermometer is capable of measuring a wide range of temperatures (from -35 degrees to 900 degrees Celsius) and is useful for preventative maintenance, quality management, and electronic design.

Hazardous Areas and Extreme Conditions – Some of our products are designed to function even in areas that would be considered hostile.  There are a variety of products available that can handle both extremely hot temperatures and extremely cold temperatures.

Bimetal Thermometers – There are also gauges that are very durable to withstand difficult environmental stresses.  The Bimetal Thermometers available through SRP Control are especially designed to withstand corrosion and other elemental factors.

Fluid and Air Temperature Sensors – Specifically designed for automotive functioning, these gauges assess the temperatures of fluids and gasses used in engines.  The sensing elements are designed using materials that can withstand the elements both inside and outside the car.

SRP Control offers a variations on many of our products allowing for adaptability and often digital display readouts.  Be sure that you are getting the temperature gauge that best meets your needs.
