The Thomas Traceable Workhorse thermometer is a Type K thermocouple thermometer used for measuring temperature in kilns, gas turbine exhaust, ovens, diesel, engines, and other industrial applications. The thermometer measures temperature from -50 to 1300 degrees C (-58 to 2372 degrees F), with an accuracy of + or - 1 degree C, + or - 75%. The 3.125"-long stick probe is 0.125 inches in diameter and is attached to the base with a 40" cable. The recessed front panel has an adjustable offset function that enables the unit to be calibrated to an in-house standard or a particular sensor for increased accuracy. The thermometer is traceable to National Institute of Standards and Technology standards, indicating that it is calibrated to International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 17025 levels. This Thomas thermometer is used to monitor temperature in high-temperature industrial settings.

Digital thermocouple thermometers measure the temperature of air, liquids, or surfaces. They may measure temperature in Celsius, Fahrenheit, or both. Thermocouple thermometers are composed of two conductors of different metals, usually alloys of the same metal, which touch at the sensor end of the thermometer. The difference in conductivity between the two metal pieces produces a voltage flow between the sensor end and the open end of each conductor, which can be used to determine the temperature. Different alloys are used for different temperature ranges. Thermocouple thermometers are used in applications that require a large temperature range and do not require a high degree of accuracy. These thermometers are used in kilns, turbine exhaust systems, and furnaces.
