A portable calibration bath with four times more calibration throughput and twice the accuracy of Micro-Baths and dry-block calibrators
Now2 there are portable calibration baths designed with the process manufacturing professional in mind. Process manufacturing plants for pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and food production utilize many sanitary temperature sensors that require regular calibration. Production must stop during temperature sensor calibration. Therefore, more calibration throughput means less plant downtime. And in businesses where even a few tenths of a degree Celsius can cost thousands of dollars in ruined product, temperature accuracy is crucial to maintaining quality.
The Fluke Calibration 6109A and 7109A Portable Calibration Baths are liquid baths that let process industry professionals calibrate four times more sanitary sensors per batch in less time and with twice the accuracy of other portable baths in this class. Larger than micro baths, up to four tri-clamp sanitary sensors fit easily into these baths for calibration at ± 0.1 °C temperature display accuracy. Throughput is even higher for sanitary RTDs with small or no flanges.
Two bath models cover a wide temperature range: 35 °C to 250 °C for the 6109A and -25 °C to 140 °C for the 7109A. Each model offers a "-P" version that includes process electronics for connecting an external reference probe.
Professionals working in clean process industries, including facilities managers, production engineers and calibration technicians, prefer these baths for a variety of reasons.
Facilities managers who need to meet U.S. FDA and ISO clean room standards like the baths' stainless steel casing that stands up to harsh cleaning solutions. They depend on the 6109A and 7109A to help maintain the accuracy of the plant's temperature sensors, thus reducing the possibility of an expensive product batch loss.
Production engineers also appreciate the baths' accuracy, which helps them control sensor out-of-tolerance conditions. Moreover, they prefer to use a bath designed specifically for clean room calibration throughput. No more need to make do with equipment designed for some other application.
Calibration technicians who perform calibrations on platforms, in crawl spaces, and other hard-to-reach parts of the plant enjoy the portability and clean room compatibility (i.e. easy to sanitize, don't harbor bacteria) of these baths.
Global Fluke Calibration service and support ensure that your 6109A and 7109A baths will give you years of service that you can trust.
