Infrared Thermometers have been used across a wide variety of industries for many years but have become particularly popular during the Covid 19 pandemic. The instruments allow temperature to be measured at a safe distance without having to have direct contact with the person during the process. An IR Thermometer reports a temperature value based on the thermal radiation a particular object emits and includes adjustable temperature ranges, aiming spots and distance to spot ratios to make versatile accurate measurements for every application.
The accuracy of IR thermometers is affected by many factors including type of material, transparency and reflectance properties of the surface so should therefore never be used to make detailed temperature measurements. These factors make it important that these units are calibrated on a regular basis, which involves using a highly accurate thermometer comparator and master reference thermometer.
We carry out this calibration service at our state-of-the-art laboratory in County Durham with modern test procedures and equipment to ensure we have the capability to calibrate all types of IR devices used across industry. We see anything from hi-tech infrared cameras used in the building and surveying industry to a simple handheld device used to check a patient’s temperature before entering a physio practice.
Our team of expert technicians are on hand to help you with any queries you have about calibration, servicing or repair.
