Pen type thermometer for use in food industry has a wide temperature range, fast measurement time and certificate of calibration.
The SuperFast Thermapen is a food thermometer measuring temperature over the range of -49.9 to 299.9C. It offers a combination of speed, accuracy and convenience of use and now the UK manufacturer, Electronic Temperature Instruments (ETI), has now improved it.
Advanced technology makes the new Thermapen 4 even more intuitive than previous models. The patented 360 degree self-rotating display automatically turns so the user can read the thermometer in any position — in either hand, left or right.
The Thermapen 4 is light sensitive, turning on the backlight and making it easy to read in poorly lit areas or complete darkness. The Thermapen 4 is powered by a single AAA battery with a life expectancy of 3000 hours in normal use. Both low battery and open circuit (broken probe) are displayed, when applicable.
The motion-sensing sleep mode automatically turns the Thermapen 4 on or off when the user picks it up or puts it down, maximising battery life. The thermometer will stay on all the time when it is being used but when it is put down, it will switch to sleep mode to save battery life.
The plastic casing is washable and includes a ‘Biomaster’ additive that reduces bacterial growth. The ergonomic rubber seal minimises the risk of the ingress of water, dust or food. As well as being waterproof to IP66/67, it is still one of the fastest reading contact thermometer on the market. The true temperature of a product can be tested in just three seconds. The Thermapen 4 incorporates a reduced tip, stainless steel, penetration probe (3.3mm diameter x 110mm long) that conveniently folds back through 180 degrees into the side of the instrument when not in use.
Each Thermapen 4 is supplied with a traceable certificate of calibration.
