Description

The TP9 is an intrinsically safe digital gauging thermometer designed for use in hazardous locations. With over 30 years experience manufacturing digital thermometers, ThermoProbe has designed the TP9 with reliable RTD sensors based on our previous industry-standard thermometers such as the TP7 and TP8.

The latest TP9 electronics are more accurate than previous models based on our laboratory thermometer technology. The convenient user interface provides a large 1/2” character display and buttons that can be easily used with gloves. An automatic backlight feature is included to help reading the display in low light conditions. The versatile software functions allow easy selection of Celsius or Fahrenheit units and display resolution. The arrow indicators on the display allow the user to readily establish stable readings and temperature trending. Stabilized temperature readings can be conveniently saved for later. The TP9 comes equipped with easily replaceable AA batteries, providing up to 200 hours of operation.

The TP9 rugged instrument body is constructed from stainless steel and acetal components. The TP9 ergonomic probe storage and stainless construction is well suited for gauging heavy products that are hard to clean such as asphalt. With multiple probe configurations and allowable lengths up to 50 meters (165 ft), the TP9 is well suited to many tank gauging applications. The probe assembly is constructed of easy to clean materials such as non-stick cable and stainless steel.

Certifications

The TP9 certifications are recognized internationally (IECEx), in Europe (ATEX), Japan (TIIS) and Russia (GOST).

Probe Assemblies

Thermoprobe gauging thermometers come equipped with probe assemblies consisting of a length of non-stick 2-wire cable and a stainless steel weighted RTD temperature sensor. Indelible brass markings are applied to the cable to aid in tank depth determination. The Probe Assembly part numbers are specified as follows:

Probe Part Number

Example: Our most standard PG-075-SW-SM probe assembly is 75 feet long (075) with a Standard Weight (SW) and brass markings every 5 feet (SM). Various configurations are available.

Probe Assembly Pricing

Standard Weight

0.25 lb (0.11 Kg)

This reliable design is our most popular probe.

Extra Weight

0.50 lb (0.23 Kg)

This design has the same diameter as the Standard Weight but is slightly longer and heavier.

Railcar Weight / No Weight

The Railcar probe is produced as a specialty probe for the railcar industry specifically for small diameter gauging tubes fitted in many tanker cars.

Asphalt Weight

0.75 lb (0.34 Kg)

The probe of choice when working with liquid asphalt, molten sulfur, molasses, or similar high-viscosity petrochemicals.
