With a large choice of thermometers and probes, Quipment can provide the right device for your temperature monitoring requirements.
Min/max thermometers are user-friendly devices used for monitoring room temperatures, cold storage appliances or any other temperature-controlled equipment or environment.
Min/max thermometers can usually display the current temperature, along with the minimum and maximum values recorded. These min/max values can be adjusted manually by the user.
Most min/max thermometers are equipped with alarm functions for alerting the user in case of temperature excursions.

Important points to consider before choosing a thermometer/data-logger are:
- the temperature range to monitor
- the alarm levels to pre-configure if necessary
- is a standard “bullet” probe or “bottled” (glycerol) probe needed?
- the environment being monitored (room, freezer, etc.)
– What is the difference between a data-logger and a “min/max” thermometer?
A data-logger can store a lot of measurements in its internal memory and is able to generate detailed reports with or without additional software (depending on the model).
A “Min/Max” thermometer will simply display the minimum and maximum values recorded (usually along with the current temperature), which can be reset, but will not be able to generate detailed reports.
– The end user has no IT restrictions and can install software. Should we use a Min/Max or Data-logger thermometer?
If the users are able to install software on their computers, we would recommend using a data-logger as detailed reports can be obtained without having to manually record the measurements everyday.
– Do I need a standard “bullet” probe or “bottled” (glycerol) probe?
Standard bullet probes are highly sensitive to the air temperature in the room or device being monitored. However, the air temperature doesn’t always reflect the intenal temperature of the contents (such as vaccines or samples), which hold on to heat and are resistant to small air temperature fluctuations. Glycerol probes are often preffered as they more accurately reflect the temperature of the contents of the device or room.
