The model CTR3000 precision thermometer provides a complete measurement and control interface for users wishing to make high-accuracy temperature measurements or calibrate thermometers. It supports a wide range of thermometer types including 25 Ω SPRTs, 100 Ω PRTs, thermistors and thermocouples.


Microjet: The proof that an autoclave can be compact and fast

The autoclave Microjet thermal energy required for sterilization is delivered directly to the medium. Microwaves are the energy source, which makes the heating occurs instantly and uniformly throughout the volume of the liquid. In comparison with the traditional steam autoclave, sterilization takes 5 times less time, while the exposure to high temperatures is very short (60-90 seconds). This minimises the decomposition of microbiological medium.

New Product Release: High Pressure In-Line Process Viscometer Sensor

PAC-Cambridge Viscosity releases new high pressure in-line process viscometer sensor. The new Class 1, Div. 1 certified SPC-302 inline sensor is made of Inconel 718 to handle the high pressures and corrosive environments found in the petroleum and chemical industries. The sensor has a 1.25” (31.75 mm) NPT thread to be easily installed into 2”-6” process pipelines or tanks. The SPC-302 measures less than 6 inches which requires minimal clearance for tight locations. Paired with either the ViscoPro 2000 or ViscoPro2100 electronics, is ideal for hazardous area classifications.

The importance of using CRM’s and calibration standards for intermediate checks

Running a QC lab not only means quality control of the product, but also of the working methods and analysers used determine this product quality. To do so, a combination of regular accredited analyser verifications and in-lab intermediate checks is required. Accredited analyser verification according to ISO/IEC 17025 is performed by European Lab Services, but the intermediate checks of your systems can be done easily by yourself using Certified Reference Materials.
