ADOX announces itīs newest lab product: The ADOX stainless themometer with glowing indicator and a marking at 20°C.
All laboratory thermometers sold in Europe are of the glass-tube type. This makes it very difficult (actually almost impossible) to read the scale under red light.
If the glass tube thermometer is inserted in a developing tank you canīt read it unless you take it out and if youīre out of luck it falls in and is "lost".
In total darkness no other thermometer currently sold can be read.
Stainless tray thermometers available on ebay as a used product ususally have a short stem so they cannot be used in measuring cylinders or tanks.
All of the above encouraged us to design and manufacture our new ADOX stainless thermometer.
But the best information probably is that we were able to price it in the range of regular glass thermometers with a net selling of 12,50 EUR plus tax & shipping end user price.
Whether for film or paper development, color or black and white - this thermometer measures precisely and reliably. The large display can be read easily under red darkroom light, and if you're doing sheet film tray development in complete darkness, you'll love the fluorescent indicator and the marker at 20 degrees. The thermometer is made from rust-free stainless steel and is maintenance-free. If you drop it, the indicator will jump around like crazy, but it won't break like it's glass cousins. The included stainless steel clip helps make sure that the thermometer sits securely on the tray lip and that the scale is level.
The 20cm length means you can also effortlessly measure the temperature of liquids in a high container like a measuring beaker. But because of the length, it isn't intended for trays that are smaller than 18x24 cm.
Length: ca. 21 cm
Diameter: ca. 5,5 cm
Measures from: 10 to 50 deg C / 50 to 120 deg F
Scale: Celsius in Half-degree steps and Fahrenheit
Precision: 1% (equals +/- 0,2° at 38°)
Readability in the dark: glowing hand and marker at 20° C
(The glowing indicator is glowing with the strength of regular watch handles. This cannot be photographed. The green colour in the image was created in photoshop for illustration purposes).
