High accuracy temperature calibrators

Paul Boughton

GE Measurement & Control announced new high performance temperature calibrators from the GE Druck family of products. The calibrators provide high accuracy, stable temperature reference to help achieve optimum operation of temperature sensors and instrumentation.

High temperature performance calibrators are the latest additions to GE Measurement & Control’s integrated calibration and communication solutions platform and are designed for use throughout the process, industrial, oil and gas, power generation, pharmaceutical, food and beverage and general engineering sectors.

When used in conjunction with a multi-function calibrator, such as GE’s Genii, an instrument technician can cover more than 80% of all calibration tasks, including those relating to HART and Fieldbus devices, with just two portable instruments.

The new series includes four, easy-to-use temperature calibrators: two Dry Blocks; and two Liquid Baths. The Dry Block calibrators cover a temperature range of -35˚C to 650˚C. They incorporate the latest metal block and electronic control technology to achieve accuracy to 0.2˚C with a stability of 0.05˚C and rapid heating and cooling to improve productivity. They offer a choice of precision-bored, interchangeable well inserts to accommodate a wide range of test devices.

The Liquid Bath temperature calibrators cover a temperature range of -35˚C to 255˚C. They feature a large capacity bath to accept irregularly shaped or multiple devices. The large capacity bath can be removed to allow a new bath to be inserted if the heating fluid needs to be changed. The bath has a leak-proof cover for transportation. With a stability of 0.05oC and accuracy to 0.1oC, these versatile temperature calibrators are multifunctional and can be used as a black body source and as a Dry Block with interchangeable inserts.
