Introducing the
Techne Calibration Range...
Dri-Block Temperature Calibrators
The Tecal Block Calibrator series are used as portable temperature calibrators in a wide variety of industries for checking the calibration of thermocouples, RTDs and liquid filled sensors. The checking of temperature is
vital in numerous industrial processes – engines, machines, boilers, pumps,
storage rooms, air conditioners, compressors used in power stations, chemical plants, refineries, offshore platforms, ships, steel works, instrument
companies are all typical application areas.
Water Baths
A comprehensive range of temperature controlled water baths are available
from Techne. Twenty different water bath combinations allow the use of accurate temperatures from -40°C up to 250°C; ensuring a solution for most
laboratory applications.
Precision Temperature Fluidised
Sand Baths
With more than 50 years experience in the field of temperature control,
Techne has established itself as a world leader in the design and manufacture of equipment used for both laboratory and on-site temperature
calibration, providing the calibration engineer with a precise dynamic stable
temperature source.
Exceptional temperature stability and uniformity also make Techne fluidised
baths the ideal choice for critical heat treatment procedures. Pioneers in
the development of fluidised bath technology, Techne have a wide range of
products capable of covering the temperature range –100°C to 1100°C.
Techne fluidised baths are used in materials and component quality control,
instrument calibration laboratories and thermal processing production departments. They provide rapid heat transfer and precise temperature control
to calibrate and maintain temperature sensitive instruments efficiently and
safely.
Handheld Thermometers
The Model 4500 Series Ultra-High Accuracy Thermometer take metrologylevel temperature measurement to the laboratory, the production floor and
the field.
Ultra-high system accuracy is achieved because the thermometer and probe
function as if they were calibrated together as a system even though they
can be purchased separately. The 4500 System uses coefficients stored in
each probe with the Steinhart-Hart algorithm to calculate the exact temperature reading every time you plug in a probe to take a measurement.
The 4500 series thermometers accept a wide range of plug-in probes
equipped with proprietary Smart Probe system. The probes utilize super
stable thermistors capable of providing high resolution, fast response and
ultra high accuracy.

tecal portable dri-block® calibrators
Tecal Series of Dri-Block® Calibrators
The Tecal Block Calibrator series are used as portable temperature calibrators in a wide variety of
industries for checking the calibration of thermocouples, RTDs and liquid filled sensors.
The checking of temperature is vital in many industrial processes – engines, machines, boilers,
pumps, storage rooms, air conditioners and compressors used in power stations, chemical plants,
refineries, off-shore platforms, ships, steel works and instrument companies which are all typical
applications for uses of this type of equipment.
The Tecal series comes in three different models offering from simple, reliable and portable temperature calibration and also for applications where greater flexibility is required.
The Tecal ‘F’ units are lightweight portable units in 2 versions with or without RS-232.
The Tecal ‘S’ units are designed for Laboratory use and include RS-232.
The Tecal ‘H’ units have programming facilities with a switch test function and RS-232.
With the Tecal ‘S’ and ‘F’ models calibration is simple, quick and easy.
1.Select the temperature scale required (°C or °F) and calibration temperature on the LED display.
2.Place the insert into the hole in the block.
3.Place the sensor under test into the insert.
4.Connect the sensor to reading device (DVM, Digital Thermometer or sensor controlling circuit etc.)
5.Allow the block to stabilise for at least 10 minutes once it has reached the desired temperature.
6.Compare the temperature reading of the external thermometer with the reading on the Tecal
LED display.
7.Repeat the above steps for all calibration temperatures until the calibration is complete.
The Tecal ‘H’ range allows greater flexibility where several calibration programs may need to be
carried out in the field.
1.The ‘H’ range is fitted with a 4 line by 20 character LCD and an 8 button keypad for creating and using calibration programs (setting temperature, ramp rate and holding time) and storing data at each temperature.
2.The LCD and keypad allow the user to configure the calibrator for:
●● A normal calibration of temperature probes (analogous to the ‘S’ range).
●● A switch test input for monitoring hydraulic thermostats, including the ability to pause at the temperature where switching occurs (very useful when the temperature for switch changeover is not known).
●● A calibration using the User Probe Interface (UPI), (see page 12) which allows storage of both the block temperature and the reading of the test sensor which is connected to the UPI.
●● The Tecal ‘H’, ‘S’ and selected Tecal ‘F’ models have an RS-232 interface for data and program transfer or real time control using Techne Works (see page 11).
The ‘S’ and ‘F’ models require the computer to be continuously connected to the Tecal calibrator
when using Techne Works.
On the other hand, the ‘H’ range can calibrate probes independently of the computer and at the
end of the day, the user can download the test results from the Tecal calibrator to the computer
to print out the appropriate calibration certificate(s).
A set of software commands is available allowing third party software applications to be developed. For further details, please contact the Techne Sales Department.
All Tecal calibrators have a large heater block (aluminium for the Tecal 140 & 425 models, and
aluminium/bronze for the Tecal 650) which provides optimum uniformity and stability. This heater
block can accommodate large multi-hole inserts allowing calibration of several probes at one
time.
Special inserts are available upon request.
All Techne units are designed and manufactured to BS EN 1S0 9001: 1994 and carry the CE mark.

All Techne equipment conforms to the EMC and Low Voltage Directives. tecal portable dri-block® calibrators
Calibrate with confidence using the Tecal
“Field” Range of Dri-Block Calibrators
A new range of lightweight dry-block thermal calibrators that operate from 45°C below ambient
up to 650°C has been developed by Techne for convenient use in the field.
The three models in the new Tecal F range incorporate the precision control system used on
Techne’s Tecal H and S models to provide excellent reliability and accuracy, with a number of
improvements such as an enhanced display resolution of 0.01°C and faster heating and cooling
rates.
The Tecal 140F operates between 45°C below ambient (typically -20°C) and 140°C with a temperature accuracy of ±0.3°C and a temperature uniformity of ±0.2°C. Heating time to 100°C
is five minutes.
All the models are offered with or without RS-232 communications and can be used with a wide
range of inserts to suit different probe sizes. Automatic fan cooling is standard, with accelerated
cooling probes also available.

tecal portable dri-block® calibrators
Tecal S and H range Dri-Block Calibrator
This range of temperature calibrators is ideal for calibrating temperature sensors used in the
food and pharmaceutical industries in addition to calibrating any sensors used in the temperature
range outlined in the specifications below.
S Version: Set required Temperature and Calibrate
H Version: Set required Temperature and Calibrate; also programmable for switch test and ramp
rate etc.
Tecal 140S/H
The Tecal 140S provides a complete system for calibrating most types of thermal sensors used
in the temperature range of -40°C to 140°C which includes “K” type thermocouples commonly
used in the food industries, cold storage rooms and environmental monitoring systems.
140H
Where automation in both the field and laboratory are required, the combination of the Tecal
140H with the UPI (see page 13) saves time and money. The user can set the program and leave
the unit to calibrate the probes, automatically storing the results in memory. This allows the user
to attend to other tasks and when convenient download the results to a computer to print the
calibration certificate.
Using advanced peltier technology and state-of-the-art mechanical and electrical components,
these calibrators can rapidly cover the complete temperature range where speed is of the essence
without loss of accuracy or stability. The heater block with a defined measuring zone of 50mm
from the bottom of the block allows for different length/active area sensors. Although the quoted
accuracy and stability is ±0 .2°C & ±0.05°C respectively, one can often achieve an accuracy of
±0.1°C and a stability of ±0.02°C with high class RTDs and thermocouples.

Portable Dri-Block® Calibrator model CE-350
The CE-350 is a low-cost alternative to the Tecal 425 models where routine checking of RTD and
thermocouples is required.
For some applications, it is important that the unit is very portable (the CE-350 weighs only
1.5kg) and can calibrate the sensors as quickly as possible (can heat and cool over the temperature range in a matter of minutes).
Typical applications where the CE-350 can be used are in checking fire alarm detectors, industrial
ovens, dryers, etc.

RTD Probes
The Techne Model WSP425 and SSP670 PRT’s are an excellent choice for use as a reference sensor in all types of systems including dry block calibrators, liquid calibration baths, ovens, reactors
and other applications where temperature needs to be accurately measured.
Our PRT’s offer proven and reliable performance for critical temperature measurements. They
can be used with our Tecal Accu-Temp indicator or any comparable unit. Both models include a
carrying case and ITS-90 calibration (NIST traceable) certificate with coefficients and resistance vs.
temperature table. The SSP670 has excellent performance, specifications and wide temperature
range at an affordable price, while the WSP425 is designed for measurements within a narrower
temperature range.

The CH-5 Chiller Unit
The CH-5 Chiller Unit is designed for use in conjunction with the TECAL 140 H&S Calibrators to
achieve calibration temperatures down to -40°C. Chilled water pumped through the Heatsinks on
the Tecal 140 units to allow the Tecal to reach -40°C.
In normal ambient temperatures of up to 20°C the minimum temperature obtainable with the
TECAL 140 models is 45°C below ambient; by artificially cooling the heatsink of the units with
water from the chiller -40°C can be obtained.
The unit is designed to run on distilled or deionised water.
The CH-5 can also be used to pass cooling water through the cooling coil on the Calibration
Baths (LCB) and Cooling Probe (FDB00CP); minimum temperature +10°C.

Water Baths
A comprehensive range of temperature controlled water baths are available from Techne.Twenty
different water bath combinations allow the use of accurate temperatures from -40°C up to 200°C; ensuring a solution for most laboratory applications.
First select the unheated stainless steel bath (see page 23) which has the appropriate volume for
the application, for example B-26 which has a volume of 26 litres.
Then add a thermoregulator (see page 24-25) which is suitable for the required temperature
range, for example the TE-10D Tempette is a digital thermoregulator for temperatures between
-40°C and 120°C.
Select any accessories that are required, for example; both gabled and flat lids are available for all
bath sizes. Gabled lids allow particularly tall tubes to be accommodated.
If sub-ambient temperatures are required it is necessary to add a cooling mechanism to the bath.
Techne recommends the use of a dip or flow cooler for temperatures down to -35°C. For example
the RU-200 can lower temperatures down to -20°C. It is also possible to use the cooling coil with
a water supply for temperatures from 5°C above the water temperature to ambient.
To assemble the complete system shown opposite the following products are required:

Pioneers in the development of fluidised bath technology, Techne have a wide range of products
capable of covering the temperature range –100°C to 1100°C.
Energy
regulator
The fluidised bath is constructed from a container filled with dry inert particles of aluminium oxide. When a gas flow is passed through the particles via a porous distribution plate, the particles are separated and suspended in the gas flow and give the appearance of a boiling liquid.
Apart from circulating and flowing like a liquid, fluidised particles exhibit excellent heat transfer characteristics. When fluidised particles are heated, heat is distributed quickly and
evenly throughout the bath and transferred rapidly to objects submerged in the bath. The bath temperature can be adjusted easily to the point at which you wish to calibrate or carry out a heat
treatment application.
Within the temperature range of the unit the aluminium oxide does not melt or reach boiling
point. Therefore, solidification which takes place in salt baths and fumes from hot oil baths are
eliminated.
Fluidised baths are dry and inert, making the medium a safe and clean alternative to conventional
liquid systems and salt baths.
Techne fluidised baths are used in materials and component quality control, instrument calibration laboratories and thermal processing production departments. They provide rapid heat
transfer and precise temperature control to calibrate and maintain temperature sensitive instruments efficiently and safely.
Applications include:Aerospace ●● Jet engine sensors particularly irregularly shaped sensors which cannot be calibrated with Dri-Block or liquid baths.
●● Wiring looms from battery and engine sensors on transport aircraft.
Fuel cells systems ●● Heat source for a heating coil used to generate superheated steam which is a safer alternative
to electric ovens and oil baths.
Engineering
●● Heat treatment of metals used in stress analysis testing.
●● Heating of reactor vessels containing plastics samples.
Mining
●● Used to heat a reactor vessel with mineral samples when investigation oil and petroleum generation.
Petrochemical
●● Used to test heavy ship oil in reactor vessels.
Shape setting
●● Used by leading manufacturers to shape- set nitinol stents and platinum/tungsten coils.

precision temperature fluidised sand baths
SBL Range
The SBL range of Fluidised Baths offer a safer alternative to the dangers associated with high
temperature oil and salt baths.
These units are designed to be bench or floor standing and only require an electrical and air
supply for operation. Air passes through the mass of the aluminium oxide (Alundum) particles
via a porous plate in the base of the unit separating the individual particles and suspending them
in free air, giving the properties of a liquid bath. Heaters are fitted within the bath which allow
temperatures of up to 600°C to be maintained. All the SBL range units have a stainless steel inner
container insulated from the outer wall and a safety air pressure switch in the event of loss of air
and also a thermal cut-out. A range of accessories are available.
All SBL units can have their temperature accuracy (and setability) improved by fitting the optional
TC-8D temperature control unit (see page 38) which will maintain the temperature to within
±0.3°C.
SBL-1
With a temperature range of up to 350°C this unit covers a wide range of applications.
Simple to operate and maintenance free the SBL-1 Fluidised Bath provides a uniform and stable
heat source and will control the temperature to within ±1°C.
The SBL-1 has a working volume of 228mm diameter and 120mm deep. The unit is fitted as
standard with an energy regulator to set and control the temperature. Selector switches are used
to add or reduce power when required with neons illuminating when power is applied to each of
the two heating elements.

SBL-2
For temperatures up to 600°C the SBL-2 Fluidised Bath will maintain temperature to within ±1°C.
The working volume of the unit is 228mm diameter and 140mm deep. Three 1kW heaters give
a heat up time from ambient to 600°C of approximately 100 minutes. (All the SBL range of units
have a pocket in the fluidised bath that will accept a 5mm diameter control thermocouple.)
SBL-2D
This extra depth fluidised bath is based on the SBL-2 but with an increased working depth of
350mm. Four 1kW heaters give a heat up time from ambient to 600°C of approximately 100
minutes.
TC-8D & RS-232
SBL-2
Designed to improve the temperature stability and temperature setting accuracies the TC-8D is
compatible with all of the SBL series of fluidised baths.
The TC-8D is a self contained unit and is supplied complete with a chromel/alumel Type K thermocouple which fits into the sheath supplied with the SBL baths.
The unit has digital set point of bath temperature on an LED display with PID control.
A TC-8D with RS-232 communication is also available for use with our custom iTools software for
programming ramps, dwells and hold at up to 10 temperature set points.

FB-08 Range
The FB-08 series are precision fluidised baths with exceptional temperature stability and
uniformity making them the ideal choice for critical temperature calibration and heat treatment
processes. The characteristics of the FB-08 series offer excellent thermal uniformity and heat
transfer to make them a useful tool in the calibration and testing of a very wide range of
temperature sensors.
These FB-08 and FB-08C Fluidised sand baths have become the market standard for carrying out
shape setting (heat treatment processing) on Nitinol wire in a precisely controlled and uniform
manner. Platinum/tungsten products are now also being processed successfully. The Fluidised
baths offer lower running costs and are much safer to use than the alternative salt baths and
give much better results than conventional ovens. These products have excellent temperature
uniformity and offer fast temperature immersions as the fluidised alumina behaves like a liquid.
The typical processing time is typically 2-3 minutes per item for immersion in the bath which is
then followed by quenching in a cold fluid.
The unit is suitable for many other applications including thermal testing of sensitive components
such as semiconductor devices, wire product testing, delicate transducers and they may also be
used as a constant temperature environment for chemical reactions.
Because the fluidised bed is a fine dry powder, it does not have surface tension effects of liquid
baths, and does not wet any objects immersed in it. The electrical insulating properties of the
alumina used in the FB-08 series are not affected by fluidisation, making it possible to conduct
electrical measurements on immersed objects such as assembled printed circuit boards.

is filled from the top with alumina. When fluidised the alumina is heated by the four immersion
heaters close to the inner container outer wall with the control thermocouple giving excellent
temperature control.
The heater elements are protected (by a pressure switch operated by the fluidising air) from
excessive surface temperatures and the power supply is removed if the air supply to the unit is
disrupted. The unit also has an over-temperature cut-out fitted to protect the heating elements if
a fault with the control system occurs. Air supplied to the unit passes through two filters and a
pressure regulator to remove any oil and moisture and to set the correct pressure for the cyclone
extraction system and for optimum fluidisation.
FB-08C
The fluidising air passes through a flowmeter and then to a plenum chamber from which it is
distributed evenly across the inner container.
Dust extraction is carried out by ambient air being drawn down past the probe plate and through
a peripheral slot around the top edge of the inner container. It then passes through a cyclone to
separate and remove any alumina particles which are collected in a glass collection jar and then
passes through the exhaust filter.
Entrained alumina removed by the cyclone and collected in the collection jar, which is accessible
from the front of the unit, can be re-used and simply emptied back into the bath.
Sensor calibration or precision heat treatment is simple and precise with the FB-08 series fluidised baths.
●● Set the bath to the required temperature and air flow level (on manual units).
●● Suspend the sensor to be tested in the bath (using the probe plate supplied or basket) in the working area and allow the bath to stabilise for a short period.
●● Calibration or heat treatment can now be carried out using either a certificated standard (Comparison method) or the readout from the FB-08 control unit (direct method).
Other inert gasses can be used for special applications provided appropriate precautions are
taken.

precision temperature fluidised sand baths
The FB-08 series Fluidised Baths are precision baths with exceptional temperature stability and
uniformity and are a safe and clean alternative to conventional liquid systems and salt baths. The
fumes from oil and salt baths and also the dangers in placing components with moisture on into
the bath are eliminated.
In operation, first set the flow of fluidising air by means of the control valve on the flowmeter.
The setting will vary depending on the operating temperature; at higher temperatures a lower
flow rate is required for good fluidisation. Select the required operating temperature on the
temperature controller. The digital display indicates the set point value and the actual bath temperature. Sensors for calibration should be suspended as close as possible to the centre of the
working area or for increased uniformity by using a probe holder.

The FB-08LT Fluidised bath
-100°C to 200°C
The FB-08LT Fluidised bath is a precision low temperature bath. It incorporates a cylindrical fluidised inner container, three term digital set point and indicator controller and two flowmeters
for regulating the fluidised air and liquid nitrogen (LN2) supplies.

This model is specially designed for low temperature operation down to –100°C and is also capable of operating up to +200°C. The unit includes all of the special features listed for Model
FB-08 fluidised bath. The method of operation is similar to Model FB-08 except that it has provision for connection to a LN2 supply and is fitted with an air drying system (mounted on the
back of the unit). The air drier is required to prevent moisture in the fluidising air being introduced into the chilled fluidised bed thus preventing the alumina from fluidising. The LN2 supply
is selected with a valve on the front of the unit. It is regulated by a flowmeter which controls the
flow of nitrogen gas into the bath. The gas is exhausted from a connection on the rear of the unit
and should be ducted to a well ventilated area.
FB-08LT
At low temperatures the top opening of the bed should be completely closed, using the blanking
plate provided, to avoid warm ambient air being drawn into the bed. The LN2 flows through a
helical tube around the outside of the cylindrical stainless steel containing the fluidised bed.
Temperature is controlled by a platinum resistance thermometer and is indicated on a large digital
display. The entire system is completely self-contained. All that is required is a supply of liquid
nitrogen and air, an electrical supply and you have a dry, safe calibration bath working down to
–100°C with considerable precision. Sensors for calibration should be suspended as close as possible to the centre of the working area or, for increased uniformity placed in a probe holder.

FB-08C, Fluidised Bath
The FB-08C has been designed to allow for calibration of thermal sensors over the temperature
range 50°C to 700°C with minimum supervision and works in conjunction with a supervisory
computer via an RS232 interface. Basic control programmes are set by the operator allowing for
the control of set temperature, incremental temperature steps, dwell times and control of dead
bed state.

PID temperature control
Multiple set points and dwell times can be set by computer/programmable controller
This model is specially designed to allow the operating temperature of the fluidised bath to be
adjusted from a remote source while the bath is unsupervised. An automatic fluidising air control
system is fitted which adjusts the air flow rate accordingly to suit the set temperature of the bath.
This automatic air feature is controlled by a control system which switches five solenoid valves.
These valves are opened and closed in various combinations, providing eighteen air flow rates corresponding to eighteen different temperatures throughout the operating range. Where an
ultra stable temperature condition is required a “dead bed” state can be programmed into the
control system. During this “dead bed” condition the air and electrical supply to the fluidised bed
are switched off. For a period of up to 6 minutes the fluidised bed becomes an isothermal mass
without heat input and very low heat loss. Under these conditions the stability at the centre of
the aluminium oxide is ±0.01°C over the range of the unit.
A probe holder is available as an accessory (see page 42) that enhances the thermal conditions
(control stability and uniformity) of the temperature zone within the baths (It is manufactured to
special order to suit sensors under test).
The air flow to the fluidised thermal mass is automatically adjusted in order to maintain optimum
isothermal conditions throughout the temperature range of the unit. Variable ramp rates of heating can be programmed with the Eurotherm 2408 controller or via a PC using the optional software package iTools.

BFS high temperature calibration bath
●● Temperature range 200°C to 1100°C
●● Working volume diameter x depth 203 x 203mm
The BFS is designed for applications requiring a constant high temperature source for calibration.
The BFS has a hinged lid and a cylindrical bath 218mm in diameter and 254mm deep. Substantial
fire brick insulation is incorporated within the outer container and the lid.
Standard equipment includes a separate air supply control unit which incorporates two flowmeters for monitoring the air supply and a charge of fluidising medium (aluminium oxide) and air
diffuser (zirconium oxide).
The inner container of the BFS is filled with two layers of fine granular particles. The lower layer
(zirconium oxide) is denser than the upper layer (aluminium oxide) and does not fluidise but
instead acts as a heat insulator. The inner container of the BFS is divided into inner and outer
fluidised sections. Each area has a separate air supply which must be oil, water and dust free.
The air supply may be monitored on flowmeters in the air flow unit. Air supplies are adjustable to
obtain uniform fluidisation in both sections of the bath. Heaters are mounted in firebrick insulation between the inner and outer container; heat is radiated inwards to the fluidised bath.
BFS High temperature calbration bath
An air extraction tube is located in a horizontal position in the side of the bath just below the
hinge on the lid. When the lid is closed, dust created by the bath’s operation can be withdrawn
by connection to an extraction duct or fan. The dust can also be trapped in a small tank of water.
TC-5 Temperature Controller
The TC-5 supplied with the BFS uses a chromel/alumel thermocouple, supplied as standard,
which mounts onto the back of the BFS and fits into the pocket of the inner container. The TC-5
is fitted to the air flow control unit. The TC-5 uses an Eurotherm controller for setting the temperature in the fluidised bath and will control and indicate the bath temperature.
Advance PID controller giving set and actual bath temperature read out. Control algorithm gives
stable ‘straight line’ control with self and adaptive tuning.
