Does anyone have any experience with verifying the temperature reading that an oven has? We want to do some testing in the oven to see if we have hot/cold spots but are having difficulties finding a thermometer that will record the temperature while being able to go into the oven.
Ideally we would like to be able to probe product and get the ambient air temperature.
(a) You omitted to mention the temperature to be verified? Around 100 degC is not too difficult, otherwise maybe less easy.
(b) It also depends on how much accuracy required ?
minimally, if by thermocouple (TC) need a control box + suitable pre-calibrated probe. the calibration required will depend on (a,b)
I do laboratory ovens running at ca. 100degC with a pre-calibrated probe having a long. thin, connection line so as to to be able to slide past the door's insulation and still allow closing.
Ambient is obviously easy to measure but not necesssarily easy with respect to calibration unless you live in an igloo.
