Videos on Alternatives to Mercury-Containing Thermometers in Industrial and Laboratory Settings

Information about the Phase-Out of Mercury Thermometers Used in Industrial and Laboratory Settings

The following videos provide information on mercury-containing thermometer alternatives for industrial and laboratory settings and illustrate related thermometry concepts. Mercury-free thermometers are available and viable for most temperature measurement applications. Along with showcasing the available mercury-free thermometers on the market today, the videos cover important thermometry concepts such as traceability and the proper calibration of thermometers.

Introduction

This video provides an overview of mercury-containing thermometers alternatives and introduces the remaining videos on the concepts of traceability and creating an ice point or steam point for thermometer calibration (flv format 2 min 23 sec).
