Portable Mould Glass Thermometer

The PGM (Portable Glass Mold Thermometer) is a hand held, battery powered Non-Contact thermometer designed primarily for the measurement of mold temperatures in the container glass industry.  The PGM is equipped with fiber optic, an optical head and display which shows the current temperature. Readings taken are stored into memory and logged with Serial number and date/time for review later. Stored temperature readings are held in memory until deleted, they are not lost when the unit is turned off or the battery is removed. it provides a powerful data logging capability with storage for up to 1000 measurements.
Fiber optic tips are available as separate parts, thus allowing for calibration and repair in  glass plants. Fibre optic tips can be produced by Redfoot for most other mould temperature probes and is a direct replacement on existing equipment.
