PRESS RELEASE : New Fluke thermocouple clamp helps HVAC and refrigeration techs test temps of larger pipes

EVERETT, Wash. – Fluke Corporation, the global leader in handheld electronic test and measurement technology, has introduced a new, larger pipe temperature clamp designed to help professionals in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC/R) industry quickly measure the temperatures that reveal how well systems are functioning.

The Fluke 80PK-10 Pipe Clamp Temperature Probe attaches securely to pipes so technicians can quickly measure temperature and superheat, factors key to analyzing and adjusting cooling system performance. The Fluke 80PK-10 is designed for larger pipe diameters 32 mm to 64 mm (1.25 in to 2.5 in).

The new Fluke 80PK-10 is available by itself and as part of the new Fluke 80PK-18 Pipe Clamp Temperature Probe Kit, which also includes the smaller 80PK-8 Pipe Clamp Temperature Probe (capacity 6.4 mm to 34.9 mm (0.25 in to 1.375 in) in a soft carrying case. Together the two probes cover a full range of pipe sizes.

Both temperature probes feature durable ribbon sensors with type-K thermocouples for fast temperature and superheat measurements. Measurement range is -29 °C to 149 °C (-20 °F to 300 °F). Measurements are repeatable to 0.56 °C (1 °F). Each probe has a 1 m (39-inch) lead.

The Fluke 80PK-10 Pipe Clamp Temperature Probe is available from Fluke distributors at a suggested retail price of $169.95.
