This company has extended the range of its model 55 bimetal thermometer (photo), which is now available in a version that can withstand ambient temperatures down to –70°C. Following the release of the PG23LT pressure gage, the company now also has a mechanical temperature-measuring instrument available for operation in extreme cold conditions. All components of the elastomer-free case are made of stainless steel, and its filling to prevent condensation is specified accordingly. Other environmental influences are prevented through IP65 and IP66 ingress protection (in accordance with EN 60529/lEC 60529). The device has a total measurement range of –70 to 250°C. — Wika Alexander Wiegand SE & Co. KG, Klingenberg, Germany
