Portable calibration baths are designed for on-site calibrations, allowing the technician to carry the bath to the location of hard-to-remove instruments. Models CLB30 and CLB31 units have cooling capabilities, allowing for calibration at temperatures as low as -31°F (-35°C). Models CLB50 and CLB51 provide heating for calibrations up to 437°F (225°C).
BriskHeat, a provider of flexible heating, insulating, temperature-control and composite-curing solutions, opened a calibration center in Shenzhen, China. It joins the company’s ACR hot bonder calibration and repair centers in Columbus, Ohio, and AeroNed B.V. in Rotterdam Netherlands. These centers are manned by technical product specialists and sales engineers to provide field training and phone support.
Risk can take many forms in food-and-beverage processes. From proper hygiene standards for employees to regular calibration of instrumentation on critical processes, there are dozens of ways that process owners can mitigate risk to avoid potentially costly or hazardous results.
Many industrial processors understand the importance of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and compliance with their various codes. Some even know the difference between the four oven classifications as defined by NFPA 86 Standards for Ovens and Furnaces.
Model 12005 offers high temperature stability, built-in overheat protection and a flexible cable. Other features include color-coded calibration range indictors and sensors in various lengths and diameters.
The sterilization process for yogurt bacterial cultures requires accurate temperature measurement with fast response times, necessitating use of a specialized thin-film RTD sensor.

At its production plant in Avedoere Holme, south of Copenhagen, Chr. Hansen — a Denmark bioscience company that develops natural ingredient solutions for the food, nutritional and pharmaceutical industries — produces bacterial cultures used by food producers such as Dannon and Nestlé to make yogurt and other sour milk products. To eliminate any contaminants that could pollute or destroy the final product, the nutrient solutions are sterilized by ultra high temperature (UHT) treatment before being transferred to a fermenter.
