Micro-thermocouple technology provides for precise direct surface touch measurement without need for constant calibration adjustments
The newly enhanced Estik from Tempil eliminates the need for mulitple temperature indicators on jobsites and improves accuracy and efficiency in temperature measurement for welding fabrication and assembly.
Engineered for a wide range of critical temperature monitoring applications, Tempil’s upgraded Estik eliminates the need for supervisors to carry multiple temperature indicators, while increasing the ease and accuracy of jobsite inspections.
Estik delivers temperature readings with the industry’s highest level of accuracy by directly touching the surface of the materials being inspected. It incorporates the latest in micro-thermocouple technology with a bold digital readout that instantly displays surface temperatures with an accuracy of +/- 2%. Measuring surface temperature from 32°F to 999°F (0°C to 537°C), Tempil Estik automatically reads all standard pre-heating, interpass and cool-down temperatures, and can be used on polished or non-polished surfaces. Unlike other types of electronic technology, such as infrared guns, it is not subject to variables like calibration or distance from the surface, and it is not necessary to know what the emissivity of the surface material is in order to obtain an accurate reading.
“A supervisor on an industrial jobsite will typically carry an infrared gun, which is subject to significant inaccuracy if not regularly and properly calibrated and adjusted for each surface that is inspected,” said Benjamin Kleiman, director of marketing for LA-CO Industries, manufacturer of Tempil brands. “Estik’s direct-touch measurement technology eliminates the need for multiple indicators, while its single-button operation delivers an accurate temperature reading every time without the need for constant setting adjustments.”
The Tempil Estik is designed for use with solid stationary surfaces, including pipeline construction (pressure and non-pressure), oil rig fabrication, welding and metal fabrication, motor and bearings housings, and overall industrial maintenance.
