TQC Digital Surface Thermometer
Digital Surface Thermometer
Fast Response Thermapen with Probe
A handy pocket size Thermapen digital thermometer with fold-able stainless steel probe. Available in two versions of the Thermapen, one with a ribbon surface probe, and another with a penetration probe. The surface probe is ideal measuring the temperature variety of flat surfaces, i.e. hotplates, pipework, bearings, etc. The versatile penetration probe with a pointed, general purpose tip is suitable for liquid and also semi-solid insertion.
When the probe is unfolded the instrument automatically turns on, the unit will turned off by folding the probe back.
The large digital display temperatures with a precise read-out over the range of -49.9 to 299.9 °C with a 0.1 °C resolution and an accuracy of ±0.4 °C with resolution 1°C.
Thermapen digital surface thermometer probe, conveniently folds back through 180 degrees.
The casing is washable and includes ‘Biomaster’ additive that reduces bacteria growth and also the ergonomic rubber seal minimises the risk of the ingress of water, dust or food. Its easier for carry, storage, and also simple to use.

Why surface temperature measurement is critical?
ASTM D3276, “Standard Guide for Painting Inspectors (Metal Substrates),”1 states that the minimum surface temperature for coating application is usually 40ºF (5ºC). It may be as low as 0ºF (–18ºC) for “cold-curing” one or two-component systems or 50ºF (10ºC) for conventional two-component systems. Paint specifications may further state that painting should not be undertaken when the temperature is dropping and within 5ºF (3ºC) of the lower limit.
The maximum surface temperature for coating application is typically 125ºF (50ºC) unless clearly specified otherwise. A surface that is too hot may cause the coating solvents to evaporate so fast that application is difficult, blistering takes place, or a porous film results.
