New Belgium Brewing Refines Calibration Process With Self-Calibrating Thermometer

Installed iTHERM TrustSens sensor at the brewery

It takes New Belgium around 45 minutes on average to calibrate each thermometer. With close to 100 RTD thermometers in the facility, performing these calibrations becomes time consuming, taking up approximately 75-man hours per year. Performing calibrations using a portable micro-bath also creates safety concerns and challenges as transporting a micro-bath containing hot oil from sensor to sensor can become a serious safety hazard if not done properly and carefully.

New Belgium and Boughner knew they needed a more efficient solution to calibrate the brewery’s RTD thermometers as the current process was time consuming and hazardous. Boughner made the decision to purchase an Endress+Hauser’s iTHERM TrustSens hygienic thermometer, the world’s first self-calibrating thermometer to see if he could increase time savings and reduce risk and cost.
