A typical accuracy for a platinum resistance thermometer is [+ or -] 0.
The company's temperature laboratory uses a range of reference platinum resistance thermometers, noble metal thermocouples, stirred liquid baths, specially designed isothermal calibration furnaces and black body sources to provide a comprehensive facility for cost effective thermometer calibration or temperature probe calibration over the range -80 deg C to 1,200 deg C.
Also, unique platinum resistance thermometers (PRTs) deliver fast response, providing accurate and precise measurements of sample temperature, which are critical to absolute purity assessment.
This comparison, with NIST as a pilot laboratory, had a very large number of participants--15--and required the use of delicate thermometric fixed-point cells and standard platinum resistance thermometers.
When it comes to installing temperature sensors such as thermocouples or resistance thermometers [RTDs] in hazardous areas, many companies are still making mistakes with regard to equipment certification requirements.
In order to calibrate resistance thermometers, thermocouples or temperature transmitters, it is possible to integrate an electrical measuring instrument into the calibrator as an option.
Between these fixed points, standard platinum resistance thermometers (SPRTs) are used as interpolating devices with a prescribed interpolation formula.
