New – low hazard thermometer range from Stanhope-Seta

publication date: May 22, 2017
author/source: Stanhope-Seta

The use of mercury in glass thermometers has been a safety concern for some while and with effect from October 2017 new regulations mean that thermometers containing mercury may no longer be supplied within the European Union.

Stanhope-setaTo meet the new regulations Stanhope-Seta has launched a range of low hazard liquid in glass thermometers which do not contain mercury and provide equivalent operating parameters to traditional ASTM-IP mercury thermometers; these are available as replacements for many of the traditional thermometer types/ranges. The new instruments are manufactured to the same dimension which means that they fit directly into apparatus designed to operate with ASTM-IP thermometers. They contain a blue filling and are marked with an ‘ST’ prefix which allows easy identification. ASTM E2251 lists a range of low hazard thermometers and the new SETA instruments generally conform to this specification and are suitable for certification.

In addition high precision SETA digital thermometers are now available; these provide a cost effective alternative giving fast measurement response in general compliance with ASTM E1137 and ASTM E2877 specifications. These thermometers cover a wide temperature range between -199.9 to +1200˚C, are supplied with stainless steel temperature probes; many include a UKAS traceable calibration certificate in accordance with accreditation requirements of ISO 17025.
