Temperature Measurement

Italian scientist Galileo Galilei was one of the many thinkers who contributed to the development of the thermometer. Other greats such as Isaac Newton and Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit followed with their own contributions to what has become one of the most common instruments used in measurement today.

Contemporary times see the use of both electrical and mechanical temperature measurement systems. Either way, it is important for these devices to be correctly calibrated to known fixed points so to ensure their accuracy. While thermometers are comparatively simple instruments, the consequences of a badly calibrated thermometer can result in freezers being too warm or furnaces not being hot enough.

HK Calibration Technologies Pty Ltd (HKCT) has the equipment to calibrate thermometers from -85 to 1350 degrees Celsius. Our technicians not only calibrate thermometers but also thermocouples and data loggers connected to sensing devices.
