no more calibrating thermometers


Recommended Posts

I was under the impression that using mercury thermometers was not approved by TTB for quite awhile. And not in any food or beverage operation. I haven't even seen a mercury thermometer in several decades.

End of an Era: NIST to Cease Calibrating Mercury Thermometers

Is this important? Is anyone currently using non-mercury thermometers?

My mercury thermometer thermometer broke several months ago. What a nightmare to clean up! I use digital & calibrate with ice water. If you prefer analog, use an alcohol (red) thermometer.
