The NIST Selecting and Using Alternative Thermometers Mini-Workshop is offered every year and is a laboratory-based workshop designed to assist those in industry in the conversion from mercury thermometers to safer alternatives. The workshop covers different types of alternative thermometers, selecting the best alternative thermometer for your measurement application and uncertainty, calibrating alternative thermometers, and “in-the-field” validation methods.
The 2012 NIST Selecting and Using Alternative Thermometers Mini-Workshop has been cancelled due to a lack of registrants. Registration for this workshop is closed.
