Integrated technology solutions provider SKF has introduced a new infrared thermometer, the TKTL 30, which it considers to be its most advanced thermometer.
The TKTL 30 is a lightweight instrument for safely measuring temperatures at a distance.
“The device’s operation is more user-friendly than previous products, requiring one to simply take aim, pull the trigger and the object’s temperature is shown on the display,” SKF business development manager Steve Gething says.
Last year, the company introduced the first two products in its range of infrared thermome- ters, the TKTL 10 and TKTL 20.
Gething explains that the TKTL 30 has an increased infrared measuring range, including a high distance-to-spot ratio and dual laser sighting. Supplied with a temperature probe, the TKTL 30 can also be used for direct-contact measuring applications.
“The thermometer will meet most needs of professional maintenance technicians. As a noncontact temperature measurement tool, using the thermometer can help technicians to better evaluate the condition of running machinery, improve safety and reduce downtime,” Gething concludes.
Typical applications include the inspection of bearing housings, and heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, and performing energy audits.
