      A customer in charge of constructing and maintaining roads, highways, bridges, and other motorways came to us looking for a solution for one of their tests. This test requires them to place samples of concrete into an oven and raise the temperature to 550°C. The temperature is held for two hours and then increased to 950°C. They record the sample’s mass at each temperature, which tells them the loss of organic matter and CO2. They use thermocouples to ensure their oven reaches these key temperatures, and they contacted us looking for a temperature calibrator they could use to calibrate these thermocouples.

      Our Solution
      The customer purchased a CTC-1205A dry block temperature calibrator to provide a calibrated temperature to check and document the performance of their thermocouples with specified regularity. We showed them how to use the CTC-1205A front panel controls to quickly and easily set and read temperature from the calibrator. They inserted their thermocouple and used their handheld read-out to indicate the temperature. We progressed through a few setpoints, and the engineers were quickly comfortable with the advanced simplicity user interface on the CTC-1205A.
