Infrared Thermometer Dual Laser


Item #: IT
 


EC400L2 Infrared Dual Laser Thermometer Fast, accurate temperature measurement without cross contamination! We are proud to introduce the next generation of hand-held, non-contact infrared thermometers. The new EC400L2 offers not one, but two lasers! With this innovative sighting system, the dual lasers converge at approximately 14 inches to measure a 0.87 inch diameter circular area. As you move further away, the dual lasers expand as the target area increases to define accurately your measured surface in a virtual circle. Compact, rugged and easy to use, just aim the EC400L2 Infrared Thermometer and pull the trigger. The thermometer reads surface temperatures in less than a second. Safely measure surface temperatures of hot, cold, hazardous or hard-to-reach objects without contact. The EC400L2 is the upgraded version of the EC400L1, with better optics, dual lasers, adjustable emissivity, a comfortable grip, and a distance-to-spot ratio of 14:1! How they work: Infrared thermometers measure surface temperature by detecting thermal energy radiated from an object and coverting the detected energy to a temperature reading displayed on the instruments LCD. The laser facilitates aiming, allowing the location of measurements to be more precise. Specifications: Laser sighting for accurate aiming Infrared Temperature Range -58° to 986°F (-50° to 530°C) Infrared Accuracy ± 2% of reading or ± 1°F or 1°C Selectable temperature units °F/°C 14:1 Distance-to-spot size ratio Emissivity adjustable from 0.1 to 1.0 Bright large blue back-lit LCD display Lock for continuous temperature scanning Select Laser On/Off Uses one 9V battery (included) to provide nominal 30 hours of continuous operation Automatic power OFF

How To Enter Your Own Soap Recipe

Click Here to Print

1. Click on your unit of measurement from the drop down menu. Your options are grams, ounces, or pounds. (Ounce refers to a weight measurement, not a fluid measurement).

2. Choose your "solid form lye". Your options are Sodium Hydroxide – (NaOH) used for making bar soaps. Potassium Hydroxide – (KOH) used for making liquid soaps. **Flakes or beads are the most commonly used forms and apply to both potassium hydroxide and sodium hydroxide.

3. Type in your liquid of choice. Some listed options are milk, water, herbal tea, etc. Try to be specific so that when you want to duplicate this recipe you have not left out any important notes. (Ex – distilled water & goats milk)

4. Enter a # amount next to each oil and/or fat you wish to use in your soap recipe. Remember that the # amount entered corresponds to the unit of measurement that you chose at step 1 . Once you have completed your data entry, click on the Submit button located in the lower left corner of the screen. You will be taken to a page that contains the different oil names, amounts, and % of oil in recipe that you chose in step #3.

5. Print out your recipe, or if you want to change the % of your oils click the back button on your browser and it will take you to step #4. Edit your # amounts and proceed by clicking the Submit button. Now if your new oil % amounts look good, print out the page. (If you are not sure what the % amount should be for an oil, refer back to our online catalog soapmaking supplies/fixed oils section for recommendations.)

6. Reading your recipe:
Start with the Oil Name Column, directly below this is a list of oils you chose for your recipe. The next column is the amount of oil you will use in your soap recipe (this amount will correspond to the unit of measurement chosen in step #1 (grams, ounces, or pounds). The total oil amount will tell you how big your soap batch is (16 ounces= a 1 lb batch). The next column gives you the % in recipe this tells you the % that each oil contributes to your soap recipe. SV refers to each oil's saponification value. The next column gives you the average saponification value of your recipe. Listed at the bottom of the columns you will see total amount of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) or potassium hydroxide (KOH) to get 0% excess fat. Directly to the right of the page you will see a Lye Table that contains two columns. One reads % of excess fat and Lye amount – which again will correspond to the unit of measurement chosen in step #1. **We recommend using 5 to 8% excess fat range / lye amount. This allows for a firm bar of soap with just enough excess fat to be safe.
