Calibration bath systems like the Fluke Calibration systems and Kaye CTR-80 liquid baths play a pivotal role in ensuring the accuracy of temperature sensors, probes, thermometers, and other related instruments. Used across industries including manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, research, and quality control, these systems demand high-quality calibration fluids to achieve optimal performance. This article delves into the intricacies of these systems and highlights the exceptional properties of InfinX Calibration Fluid 0.8, a fluid engineered for precision and reliability.
Understanding Calibration Bath Systems
Calibration bath systems comprise various components working in tandem to provide a stable and controlled environment. At the heart of these systems is the temperature control unit, which utilizes a heater and a cooling system to maintain specific temperature setpoints. The bath tank, filled with a specialized heat transfer fluid, is where the calibration process occurs, with inserts and adapters ensuring good thermal contact between the sensor and the fluid.
The fluid medium plays a crucial role in this process, requiring high thermal stability and a broad operating range. Stability and uniformity are paramount, with high-end models offering exceptional performance to ensure accurate and reliable calibrations.
Introducing InfinX Calibration Fluid 0.8
InfinX Calibration Fluid 0.8 is a specialized fluid designed to meet the rigorous demands of low-temperature thermometric sensor calibration. It operates seamlessly within a range from -100ºC to 70ºC, providing extraordinary fluidity even at extreme cold temperatures. This fluid ensures optimal efficiency due to its exceptional thermal heat transfer capabilities and chemical inertness, ensuring safety and equipment protection. It is non-flammable, non-corrosive, and has low toxicity, adhering to stringent regulations.
InfinX Calibration Fluid 0.8: Key Properties
InfinX Calibration Fluid 0.8 stands out due to its unique properties that ensure consistent and reliable performance. With a viscosity of 0.8 cSt @ 40C, it maintains fluidity, facilitating efficient heat transfer. The water-white color and crystal-clear composition are indicative of its purity, while the pour point and cloud point of -129C (-200F) attest to its exceptional low-temperature capabilities. A density of 1.73 g/cm3 @ 25C and a refractive index of 1.383 further demonstrate its unique physical properties, further ensuring it remains stable and effective under various conditions.
It is important to note that while InfinX Calibration Fluid 0.8 exhibits thermal stability up to the decomposition temperature of the carbon chain, caution should be exercised when operating above 300°F (150°C), with a maximum recommended safe operating temperature of 400°F (204°C).
Optimal Applications and Compatibility
InfinX Calibration Fluid 0.8 is highly recommended for Fluke Calibration bath systems such as the Fluke 7380, Fluke 7381, and Fluke 7081, as well as the Kaye CTR-80 system and other high end calibration systems. It is ideal for calibrating instruments in ultra-low temperature applications and processes, including freezers, refrigerators, cold rooms, ultra-low freezers, and freeze dryers.
Its formula, mirroring the renowned Halocarbon 0.8 Oil technology, ensures efficient bath performance and precise calibrations. The fluid’s hydrophobic nature repels water, preserving performance, while its UV stability adds to its durability and longevity.
Using InfinX Calibration Fluid 0.8 in calibration bath systems like Fluke and Kaye CTR-80 ensures unparalleled accuracy and reliability.
