PRESS RELEASE : Press Release: Hart Scientific's new Deep-Well Compact Baths offer high performance and extra capacity at affordable prices

Hart Scientific, a world leader in temperature calibration products and services, announces a new line of constant-temperature fluid baths for calibration of a wide variety of thermometers and temperature sensors.

The new Deep-Well Compact Baths provide 18" of depth to accommodate liquid-in-glass (LIG) thermometers, SPRTs, and other long-stem thermometers. They do so with a small footprint (just 14" x 31") and a small volume of bath fluid (4.2 gallons), yet they can easily be used to calibrate thermometers in batches of ten or more.

Four baths in this series cover temperatures from -80 °C to 300 °C. Stabilities over that range are from ± 0.005 °C to ± 0.015 °C and uniformities are as good as ± 0.007 °C.

Each bath comes with an RS-232 port and Windows-based control software and is compatible with Hart's MET/TEMP II software for completely automated calibrations. An LIG Cal Kit is also available, which raises the fluid level for LIG thermometer calibrations without compromising bath performance. Each bath comes with a drain for easy fluid removal and an overflow reservoir to capture excess fluid that results when fluids expand with increasing temperature.

A key feature of these baths is their price, which is far below that of traditional temperature metrology baths, while providing legitimate metrology-level performance. Prices of the four baths range from $5,455 to $10,810 with deliveries at 30 days A.R.O.
