The best alternative to mercury thermometers
The Fluke “Stik” Thermometer is accurate, stable and durable, making it the best alternative to mercury thermometers and existing electronic thermometers. The thin-film RTD sensor incorporates the same characteristicsof other premium reference thermometers designed by Hart Scientific, but it is more robust and less susceptible to drift. Accuracy and repeatability, however, are not sacrificed for improved durability. Using a glass-stem mercury- or spirit filled thermometer at different immersion depths, or at significantly different ambient temperatures from which it was calibrated, may require the application of emergent-stem corrections that can be tedious but necessary to calculate an accurate measurement. This isn’t required with the “Stik” Thermometer. The sensor of the 1551A Ex requires a minimum immersion depth of only 7 cm (2.8 in), with no appreciable effect on the measured temperature due to heat loss through stem conduction. Some digital thermometers can become less accurate when used outside a narrow range of ambient temperatures. This isn’t the case for the “Stik” Thermometer. Your measurement remains accurate in ambient temperatures from -10 °C to 50 °C (14 °F to 122 °F). With a superior probe design combined with electronic functions that assist accurate measurement, the “Stik” Thermometer surpasses the capabilities of other digital thermometers and is the perfect substitute for your mercury thermometers.
