The Global Reference Thermometers Market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% during 2021-2028, to reach USD X billion by 2028 end. The key drivers for the growth are increasing demand for precise temperature measurements in various industrial applications and growing application scope in developing regions such as the Asia Pacific due to increasing awareness among consumers about the accurate measurement of temperatures.
Reference thermometers are used to measure the physical properties of a substance or body. The main use is in scientific laboratories for accurate measurements and calibration purposes. Reference thermometers are used in various applications including industrial, commercial, and laboratories. They offer several benefits such as they can be calibrated to measured values which makes them ideal for measurement of temperature units with higher accuracy. Reference thermometer is also known by the name of the standard operating device (SOD) or primary standard which refers that these devices are very expensive thus certified reference materials must be stored inside its case requiring full access control.
On the basis of Type, the global reference thermometers market is segmented into PRTs, Thermocouples, and Precision thermistors.
PRTs are non-contact temperature sensors that sense the infrared energy emitted by an object. PRTs require no physical contact with the monitored surface, so they can be used in harsh environments where other types of thermometers may not survive. PRTs feature a sensor and an amplifier in one small package. The impedance of PRT’s is very high, typically from 100 MΩ to 1000 MΩ at 25°C which decreases with increasing temperature. In addition to the accuracy, other key features include: - Inexpensive sensors that can be easily calibrated over a wide range of temperatures without requiring special test equipment or training for use by service technicians; - High levels of stability across many years compared with Platinum RTDs while having better linearity & repeatability characteristics than resistance thermometers (RTD); - No need for frequent recalibration due to their calibration technique based on ratios between known reference resistors.
Thermocouples are the most commonly used reference thermometers. Thermocouples can measure extremely high temperatures, and they work by measuring changes in electric current caused when there is a temperature difference between the hot junction of two wires at one end and an electrical ground at the other. These devices typically have no electronics or circuitry inside them that could be damaged by heat as many PRTs do; therefore it's possible to use them for some types of measurements where you would not want to risk damage with another type of device. The Thermocouples type of reference thermometers is used in the applications such as electric power, chemical, and petroleum industry where reliable temperature measurements are required.
Precision thermistors (PTs) are one of the types and they measure temperature by means of a physical phenomenon, called rectification. PTs exhibit an electrical potential in response to a change in their own local temperature around the room or ambient conditions. The output voltage is proportional to absolute temperature at certain reference points that vary between instruments depending on manufacturer and model type.
Precision thermistors (PTs) type of reference thermometers is the most widely used and popularly preferred for their high accuracy, excellent stability, low drift rate, and long-term reliability. They can be made with a resistance value that is very close to the actual temperature at which they operate without any significant thermal effect on it. This allows PT-type devices to attain extreme accuracies in measuring temperatures within lab environments as well as industrial settings. The working principle of these sensors involves using semiconductors like silicon or germanium alloyed with other elements like carbon or boron. Therefore, this design ensures extremely accurate measurements even when tested under dynamic conditions due to its linear properties along with multiple ranges of sensing parameters over a wide operating range between -200 to 2000°C for PT-type devices.
On the basis of Application, the global reference thermometers market is segmented into Laboratory applications, Industrial applications, and Others.
Reference thermometers are used in laboratories for measuring the temperature of the air, water, and other substances. They can be calibrated to different standards like setpoint network or PT100/PT1000 sensors. It can be used to check the accuracy of other probes or instruments that measure temperature. Reference thermometers are most commonly used in laboratories for scientific applications. They are also used to calibrate other equipment, such as probes.
Reference thermometers are widely used in industrial setups for process control. Reference Thermometer Calibration is a very important parameter of any quality management system to determine and ensure correct temperature measurements that lead to increased revenue, reducing losses due to faulty equipment, increasing productivity, or meeting safety standards.
Reference thermometers are used in industries across various sectors including automotive, aerospace and defense, food & beverage processing, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare. They can be employed to measure the temperatures of a product or for quality testing purposes. For instance, reference temperature devices (RTDs) track changes in fluid flow as well as the temperature during the filtration process; they ensure that contaminants do not enter into clean water systems such as those found at power plants.
