Possible areas of application
Long service and measurement accuracy without wear for industrial applications such as machine and plant engineering, pipeline construction as well as power plants. This version with union nut is a special version to be used with neck tube/double treaded nipple and weld-in protection tubes.
Nominal size 200 mm, aluminum, V-shaped, completely polished, gold-coloured anodized (or silver-coloured upon request). Numerals of reading scale printed on the right side. Printing black-colored for easy readability. Straight types adjustable to any desired viewing position and locked by brass nut, wrench size 22. Angle thermometers (90 degrees) have a grooved adapter piece with locking screw. Advantage: When mounting the thermometer, it is not necessary to turn the casing.
Glass inserts (Capillaries)
Capillary tube of solid glass, bar-shaped, prismatic (optic enlargement of the column, except for high temperature types), diameter approx. 6 mm, oval opening, with yellow background for mercury* and white background for blue fluid column. Scale is deeply burnt in black, thus being absolutely resistant. The main graduations, which correspond with the printing on the casing, are especially clearly outlined.
In the standard version from -30 to 250 °C blue thermometric fluid (“Fü”); for display ranges starting at 0...300 °C only mercuryfilling is technically possible.
Standard version immersion tube made from stainless steel and fitting made from brass. The diameter of the type “Dc” immersion tube is 6.5 mm; the wall thickness 0.25 mm, especially made for protection tubes according to DIN 43772, form 4 with 7 mm bore. For further information, please see chapter "thermometer protection tubes".
Scale intervals and error limits
SIKA thermometers fulfil the requirements of DIN 16195 „Requirements and testing of industrial glass thermometers“. Scale intervals and error limits are defined in relation to the casing size and the display range.
* Legal advice
According to regulation no. 847/2012 of European Union, thermometers with mercury filling are only bound for export outside the EU. Placing them on the market inside the EU after April 10th, 2014 is prohibited. Concerned are industrial thermometers and glass inserts with display ranges 0…300°C and higher, only. In this case, we are recommending the use of our dial or digital thermometers.
