Benefits of Halocarbon 0.8 Oil for Calibration Baths

The calibration of thermometric sensors is essential to maintaining operations in a broad range of industries.  From the chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing to automotive and aerospace applications, thermometric sensors require routine and precise calibration. When extreme temperatures are required for calibration, Halocarbon 0.8 Oil is the industry standard for ultra-low calibration bath fluids.

The selection of a calibration bath fluid is a daunting task , and requires a judicious review of fluid properties to ensure accurate and reproducible results.  Halocarbon 0.8 Oil has been engineered to perform uniformly across a wide range of temperatures (–100 °C to +70 °C) and is the only fluid to provide the most precise and accurate conditions even at ultra-low calibration temperatures, below –75 °C.  Halocarbon 0.8 Oil is an engineered fluid that has low toxicity, excellent electrical resistivity, high thermal conductivity, and no water absorption.  Taken together, these properties ensure that the calibration bath will allow sensor calibration across a broad range of thermometric standards. In addition, Halocarbon 0.8 Oil is a stable and chemically-inert fluid with broad material compatibility, making it easy to handle and ideal for use with a variety of probes and sensors. Below are more details on the benefits of using Halocarbon 0.8 Oil as a calibration bath fluid.  

Halocarbon 0.8 Oil Performs Across a Wide Range of Temperatures 

Fluids used in calibration baths must maintain consistent mechanical, chemical, and physical properties in extremely low temperatures. Accordingly, Halocarbon 0.8 Oil is engineered to maintain an unusually very uniform viscosity across temperatures ranging from -100°C to +70°C, exhibiting excellent fluidity (consistent viscosity) even at ultra-low calibration bath temperatures, providing efficient calibration bath performance.  It is for this reason, that Halocarbon 0.8 Oil is the recommended calibration fluid of choice for use in many advanced temperature calibration instruments including the industry-leading Fluke 7380, Fluke 7381, Fluke 7081 ultra-low temperature bath systems as well as more specialized and custom instruments.

Halocarbon 0.8 Oil Facilitates Extremely Accurate Readings 

Calibration baths are required to test and recalibrate probes used for a variety of applications within technically demanding segments including pharmaceutical, biomedical, and aerospace industries where accuracy is imperative. To accommodate ever-more demanding calibration standards, Halocarbon 0.8 Oil combines high-performance qualities to ensure ultimate precision when recalibrating probes. This inert fluorinated oil’s enduring stability results from a highly controlled polymerization process and maintains its unique combination of properties long-term to ensure consistent results.  

Halocarbon 0.8 Oil Resists Water Absorption 

Halocarbon 0.8 Oil is engineered using Halocarbon PCTFE technology, which ensures near-zero water solubility, which ensures that the calibration bath will not dissolve or combine with water or ice, allowing you to maintain consistent viscosities across a broad range of temperatures and environments. Accordingly, Halocarbon 0.8 Oil calibration baths are not susceptible to adverse physical and chemical property changes due to water condensation, and their chemical inertness and broad material compatibility helps to maintain your calibration equipment in good working order.  These unique properties make Halocarbon 0.8 Oil the industry-leading fluid for the most accurate calibration and easy-to-use performance under cryogenic conditions.

Halocarbon 0.8 Oil – Low Toxicity 

Halocarbon 0.8 Oil presents no known potential acute or prolonged health effects. Tests on the impact of inhalation, ingestion, skin contact or eye contact with this fluid all exhibit safe-to-handle properties with normal and routine lab PPE.  Halocarbon 0.8 Oil provides low levels of toxicity, making this engineered fluid an excellent choice for a wide range of analytical standards and test conditions.  

Halocarbon 0.8 Oil Guarantees Excellent Electrical Resistivity 

Calibration bath fluids should possess excellent electrical resistivity to insulate the flow of electric current.  In calibration processes that require the measurement of bare sensors, it is important that the calibration bath fluid minimizes or eliminates electrical leakage through the fluid itself.  Halocarbon 0.8 Oil has excellent electrical resistivity and is non-flammable (unlike silicone oils or hydrocarbon-based fluids), allowing you to achieve the most safe and accurate readings. 

Halocarbon offers a wide portfolio of high-performance fluids available in various viscosities, grades, and prices to fit multiple application needs. Halocarbon’s 0.8 Oil is a high-performance engineered fluid designed using Halocarbon PCTFE technology.  Halocarbon provides you with a safe, nonflammable, and chemically inert solution for calibration bath processes.
