AMETEK Land Now Makes Innovative Cyclops Meltmaster Thermometer in India for Local Market
AMETEK Land has announced that it will make a version of its portable Cyclops 055L-2F Meltmaster non-contact thermometer in India specifically for the local foundry market. AMETEK Land will assemble the Cyclops 055L-2F Meltmaster sold in India at its India Service Centre in Bangalore to provide added benefits to the Indian foundry market.
AMETEK Land’s India Laboratory, which is accredited by NABL (National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories), also will calibrate each thermometer against the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standard. It will include this free certification, which is valid for up to 12 months, during the warranty period to give customers a guarantee of measurement accuracy.
This latest version of the Cyclops 055L-2F Meltmaster available to Indian foundries also includes a new optional Bluetooth display, which offers greater convenience when accessing data. The Bluetooth LED unit displays instant temperature measurement updates, allowing for simple quality and process control and management of furnace power to optimise foundry performance and output.
“Customers can be assured of the highest quality manufacture to international standards, with the added benefit that each Cyclops 055L-2F Meltmaster will be calibrated in our NABL-accredited laboratory before being delivered,” notes Prasath Venkatasamy, National Service Manager for AMETEK Land in India.
“Since the equipment is made in India, customers can benefit from an easier transaction and much quicker delivery times. In most cases, they will receive their Cyclops within one week of placing an order. Customers also can benefit from our local technical support and access to our calibration services,” he adds.
The Cyclops 055L-2F Meltmaster is renowned for its ability to measure the real liquid metal temperature, regardless of high temperature sparks, low temperature water vapour, dust and smoke that can cause errors in temperature measurement.
“Measuring the temperature of molten metal in a foundry can be a slow and disruptive process. The use of disposable dip thermocouples can be both expensive and hazardous. The Cyclops 055L-2F Meltmaster is both fast and accurate, easy to use, and does not contact the liquid metal. It is proven to save foundries both time and money by reducing the number of dips required with disposable thermocouples,” continues Venkatasamy.
Providing highly accurate measurement and consistency, the Cyclops gives the operator confidence in the measurement for process and quality control applications. The Meltmaster’s unique measurement mode provides advanced noise rejection, which locks onto the true liquid metal temperature.
Fitted with an internal, neutral density filter within the visual sighting system, the Cyclops 055L-2F provides some additional eye comfort when viewing high temperatures, without affecting the brightness or clarity of the internal temperature display. It also features a rugged instrument casing, which is designed to withstand harsh environments for extended periods and a lens protector, which maintains the optics in good condition.
Established in 2011, AMETEK Land India Laboratory and Service Centre† provides a full service offering that encompasses testing, repairs and recalibration, which can be done at either its customers’ locations or at the AMETEK Land facility in Bangalore. AMETEK Land India Laboratory and Service Centre was the first OEM (original equipment manufacturer)-approved facility to receive NABL accreditation and is now accredited to offer thermal calibration in the range of 0 to 1600 °C for tests carried out in-house and 0 to 1200 °C for on-site calibrations. Its laboratory secured in 2017 the best calibration measurement capability of any laboratory in India for the 0 to 550 °C range.
