Probe calibration links closely with thermometer calibration and is part of the larger Calibrationhouse temperature calibration service. As experts in the design, manufacture and service of temperature measurement equipment through our Cropico brand partner; Calibrationhouse are able to offer an expert probe calibration service with competitive prices and a fast turnaround. Probes come as part of a temperature measurement kit, with a digital indicator that also needs function checking as part of the calibration.
Probes or more specifically temperature probes are devices used to measure temperature using contact style sensing methods. These methods are used extensively in the medical and food & drink industry, essentially using the changes in a temperature-sensitive characteristic (such as voltage difference or resistance) to provide temperature measurement information to the user.
Temperature probes can be classified by their sensor technology or probe configuration and there are essentially three main types of sensor used in temperature probes:
- Resistive Temperature Detectors (RTDs)
- Thermistors (Positive and Negative Temperature Co-efficient)
There are a number of ways to calibrate a temperature probe. The service provided by Calibrationhouse uses a vast array of equipment in order to accurately calibrate temperature probes, but we believe the best and most accurate way to calibrate is through the use of calibration baths. Probe calibration is available at our laboratory in Peterlee and via our on-site calibration service, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
