Analogue Thermometers

Analogue thermometers provide the perfect low cost solution to temperature measurement. ATP stocks a selection that are optimal in non-specialist environments. They are ideal for wall mounting or for use as fridge / freezer thermometers. The term 'analogue thermometer' is often associated with liquid filled thermometers alone. But the term is inclusive of various types of thermometer. This includes devices that display measured values via dials, pointers and other mechanical forms. It is common for these to utilise Bi-Metal springs. Much like liquid thermometers, these expand or contract as they become heated or cooled. There are many digital alternatives with a larger array of designs and applications so why not take a look at some of the different thermometers we have on offer.

Liquid Analogue Thermometers & Mercury Thermometers

In 2009 a UK Health Protection Agency announcement changed analogue thermometers drastically. It announced that the traditional mercury thermometer could no longer be sold to the general public. This was due to the danger mercury presents to the environment and public health. ATP now stocks a range of mercury free thermometers containing liquid that is safe for the environment. Modern liquid thermometers contain one of many forms of alcohol or spirits. If broken or damaged these spirits will evaporate in a quick and harmless manner. The visibility of the alcohol is often improved by adding small amount of coloured dye to the solution. The temperature range of the thermometer varies dependant on the solution used.
