The Fluke Calibration 5608 Secondary PRTs (formerly Hart Scientific) are stable thermometers ranging from -328 to 932°F (-200 to 500°C). The 5608 is a ±7mK probe at the triple point of water, with a one-eighth inch (3.18mm) diameter sheath in lengths of 9 or 12 inches.
When looking for improved response time and reduced stem effect in shallow immersion, look for small diameter probes, because the measurement error called stem effect is caused by the diameter of the stem rather than the length of the stem.
These probes have Inconel sheaths and are made using a special manufacturing process, giving them great precision over a wide temperature range. The sensors for these probes are reference-grade platinum and feature four-wire connections with less noisy measurements than two-wire counterparts.
These probes come with a certificate of compliance to ensure the meet their specifications. If you'd like, you can also order a NVLAP-accredited calibration from our laboratory, lab code 200348-0. On the report of calibration, you'll get the test data and the ITS90 calibration coefficients that you can easily input into any Fluke Calibration thermometer. If you order your probe with an smart connector, we'll program the coefficients directly into your connector, which loads the coefficients for you when you plug it into our 1524 Handheld Thermometer.
