Tinytags used with a thermistor probe record data used to verify the temperature of a waterbath, to ensure levels are maintained within a set tolerance for corrosion testing of steels.
Caparo Testing Technologies offers various
metallurgical and non-destructive testing services to aerospace,
oil and gas, and general engineering companies. Caparo is using two
2 data loggers each with a thermistor probe to
help prove that the temperature of a waterbath is
maintained at the correct tolerance level for corrosion testing of
Recorded data is checked after a test period of 24/48
hours. If the waterbath has maintained the correct
temperature within 2 degrees Celsius, no further action is taken.
If any issues become apparent, the results are not reported and the
waterbath is investigated.
Lee Willison, Quality Engineer at Caparo, is
responsible for carrying out auditing and quality
support duties, and chose Tinytags for their accuracy,
mobility and overall data logging capabilities. He comments,
"I am very happy with the results, and the View 2 logger with its
integral LED display is useful as it shows current readings as
well as recording temperature data over the test
