Fluke Calibration 6109A-P-156
Portable Temperature Calibration Bath with Process Electronics, 35 °C to 250 °C (95 °F to 482 °F), 115VAC
The Fluke Calibration 6109AP156 Portable Calibration Bath with Process Electronics, 35 °C to 250 °C, 115V AC includes process electronics for connecting an external reference probe and is for professionals working in clean process industries, such as facilities managers, production engineers and calibration technicians who prefer these baths for a variety of reasons. For example, up to four tri-clamp sanitary sensors fit easily into the bath for calibration at ± 0.1 °C temperature display accuracy. Throughput is even higher for sanitary RTDs with small or no flanges.
Process manufacturing plants for pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and food production utilize many sanitary temperature sensors that require regular calibration. Production must stop while the calibrations are taking place. 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 products, temperature accuracy is crucial to maintaining quality.
Facilities managers who need to meet U.S. FDA and ISO clean room standards will like the 6109A-P-156's stainless steel casing that stands up to harsh cleaning solutions; it will help to maintain the accuracy of the plant's temperature sensors, thus reducing the possibility of an expensive product batch loss.
Production engineers will appreciate the bath's accuracy, which helps them control sensor out-of-tolerance conditions. Moreover, these professional prefer to use a bath designed specifically for clean room calibration throughput.
Calibration technicians who perform calibrations on platforms, in crawl spaces, and other hard-to-reach areas of the plant will appreciate the 6109A-P-156's portability and clean room compatibility (i.e. it is easy to sanitize and does not harbor bacteria).
The 6109A-P-156 bath calibrates most temperature sensor applications used in clean process manufacturing, including pharmaceutical bioreactors (-10 °C to 100 °C), chemical reactors (200 °C), steam-in-place process (122 °C to 140 °C), autoclave sterilization (120 °C to 135 °C), food storage freezers (-25 °C), and food processing (0 °C to 220 °C).
A large tank volume (106 mm diameter x 154 mm depth) lets you immerse up to four sanitary sensors at the same time. Calibrate a batch of oddly shaped sensors of varying lengths and diameters, and still have room for a reference thermometer. Fast heating and cooling times let you get the job done without spending a lot of time waiting for the bath to come to temperature and stabilize. Increase your sanitary sensor calibration throughput, thereby decreasing expensive production downtime.
An excellent system display accuracy of ± 0.1 °C accuracy covers all sources of error, including calibration uncertainty, stability, uniformity, and repeatability; NVLAP accredited calibration is standard with the 6109A-P-156. Fluke Calibration's high metrological standards and conservative specifications mean you can have confidence in the measurements you make with this bath.
Take This Portable Bath Almost Anywhere, Including Clean Rooms
The 6109A-P-156 weighs 16 kilograms (35 pounds) and features a fixed, non-rotating bail handle, enabling most people to carry it with one hand. Single-handed carrying comes in handy when the job includes walking up and down stairs, across catwalks, and into other hard-to-reach environments. Two recessed handles on the bottom of the bath also makes it easy to move from shelf to cart, or benchtop. A sealed lid protects the 6109A-P-156 against fluid spills while during manual transportation.
The 6109A-P-156's stainless steel casing stands up to the harsh chemicals used to sterilize equipment for clean room use; synthetic materials used for decals, keypads and feet do not harbor bacteria. The keypad is sealed against moisture ingress to protect against damage during cleaning or in non-controlled environments.
Easy to Use and Maintain
The 6109A-P-156 features a large color display that indicates date and time, bath fluid temperature, setpoint temperature, control indicator when the fluid is at setpoint, and heating status. A ready indicator changes color from amber to green, giving you 360-degree visual indication when the bath fluid has reached its setpoint temperature and is ready for you to start making measurements. A hot warning indicator lights up if the fluid temperature reaches above 60 °C, warning the operator that the bath fluid and tank area are hot and should not be touched.
