Take the Guesswork Out of Brewing with New Triple Scale Beer and Wine Hydrometers

Wayne, NJ-February 8, 2018  - A good beer or wine doesn't happen accidentally. Variables such as temperature and sugar content need to be continually monitored before, during, and after the fermentation process to ensure the desired results. New DURAC® Triple Scale Beer and Wine Hydrometers from SP Scienceware monitor fermentation from start to finish and provide invaluable data points within either a commercial or home brew setting.

"When crafting beer and wine, knowing the initial quality of your mash or wort can be critical to the success of the process. The Triple Scale Beer and Wine Hydrometer not only helps to determine the beginning quality of the mash or wort but can also provide indicators of when variables such as temperature and sugar content should be changed," says Kathleen Hanek, Senior Product Manager for SP Scienceware. "Although the entire process can be completed using only specific gravity measurements, the triple scale makes it easy to know at a glance what the sugar content is (brix) or the potential alcohol by volume. These hydrometers help you to achieve the desired results, plus give you the option of three different styles."

The glass design is the industry-standard and provides inexpensive fermentation monitoring for both the seasoned professional and home brew beginner. The shatterproof style, designed with the home brewer in mind, features a unique easy to read, flat surface design on an all plastic body which removes the risk of contamination due to breakage. The polycarbonate model provides glass-like clarity combined with shatterproof strength to eliminate the risk of contamination due to instrument breakage, perfect for a demanding industrial application or the home brew aficionado.

Industry-standard glass style beer and wine hydrometer (B61807-7100) has a suggested list price of $7.99. Unique shatterproof plastic style hydrometer (B61800-6100) has a suggested list price of $16.99. Finally, the polycarbonate model (B61800-6000), has a suggested list price of $39.96.

Plum Duo Personal Eye Wash Provides Immediate First Aid to Both Eyes

Wayne, NJ- October 11, 2017  - Personal eye wash is a basic first aid supply for any work environment, but most personal eye wash can only rinse one eye at a time. So which eye do you rinse first if a dangerous substance enters both eyes? It’s one less decision, and likely quicker response time if you have Plum Duo Eye Wash with its unique dual eye piece.

“Whether its dirt and debris, or an acid or alkali, getting anything in your eyes is obviously a painful and scary experience,” says Peter Yoo, Product Manager for Bel-Art – SP Scienceware. “It is very important to apply first aid immediately so permanent injury can be prevented. Luckily, Plum Duo provides solution to both eyes simultaneously.”

A unique dual eye piece keeps both eyes open while two streams of solution flow from the inner eyes toward the outside to keep tear ducts free from further contamination.

Plum Duo Eye Wash is available in pH neutralizing solution to neutralize acids and alkalis to a harmless level in 20 seconds or less, and 0.9% sterile saline to rinse dirt and debris. Bottles are housed either in open stations, or covered stations for high dust workspaces. Quick twist caps allow immediate access to solution which can be dispensed upright or inverted, whichever is more comfortable for the user.

Plum Duo Open Eye Wash Stations range in price from $63.45 to $73.55, and Covered Eye Wash Stations range from $76.35 to $81.65, depending on the solution. A pack of 6 refill bottles of sterile saline or pH neutralizing solutions are also available for a list price of $151.45 and $157.80 respectively.

Cable-Free Sample Temperature Verification

Wayne, NJ-May 8, 2017

Verifying sample temperatures has never been easier with new, cable-free Calibrated Electronic Verification Lollipop Stem Thermometers from Bel-Art – SP Scienceware.

“These Lollipop Stem Thermometers are compact, all-in-one units with the display attached directly to the probe instead of with a cable commonly used in electronic verification thermometers,” explains Laura Geenen, Director of Product Management for SP Scienceware. “The entire digital unit can be placed inside a refrigerator, incubator, or room to verify the temperature of the samples within.”
Cabled electronic verification thermometers are useful in ovens and freezers, and other applications that require the temperature to be verified without disrupting the samples’ environment. However, for applications where the temperature is verified less frequently, or can be checked during routine entry of the environment, the compact, cable-free Lollipop thermometer is the superior choice.

Available with general calibration, or with calibration specific to refrigerators, incubators, or ambient temperatures, all of the Lollipop Stem Thermometers are supplied with calibration documents that meet the requirements of ISO 17025. General calibration models are priced at $59.48 while the specific calibration models have a list price of $99.98.

For more information on the H-B Frio-Temp Calibrated Electronic Verification Lollipop Stem Thermometers or the complete line of laboratory offerings from Bel-Art – SP Scienceware, call 1-800-423-5278, email info@belart.com or visit www.belart.com.

Save with H-B Verification Thermometers Calibrated for Specific Applications

Wayne, NJ-April 13, 2017

Factory calibrated instruments eliminate the need for expensive, time consuming custom calibration. H-B Instrument – SP Scienceware now stocks Electronic Verification Thermometers calibrated specifically for Freezers, Refrigerators and Incubators.

“Better service for our customers is our top priority, so offering thermometers calibrated at the most frequently requested points saves users both time and money,” explains Laura Geenen, Director of Product Management for SP Scienceware. “Rather than purchasing a thermometer calibrated at general points and sending it in for custom calibration, customers can now order the temperature range and calibration points specific to these common applications right off-the-shelf.”

Equipped with liquid or glass bead filled bottles which mimic the sample, these thermometers deliver temperature verification without the risk of sample contamination. Multiple models are available with features including dual zone, single or multiple displays, alarms and more.
H-B FRIO-Temp® Calibrated Electronic Verification Thermometers are priced from $127.80 to $168.90 depending on the temperature range and number of calibration points. General calibration at 0˚ and 50˚C or 0˚ and 100˚C are also available and range in price from $67.70 to $100.95 and include models suitable for ovens.

It's Safety Month - Watch Your Step

Did you know that falling down is not only the most common office accident, but that it is also responsible for causing the most disabling injuries? Here are some common ladder accidents and how to prevent them!

    1. Using the Wrong Ladder- Keep in mind weight capacity and the necessary height. If the ladder is too short, get a different one!
    2. Using Old, Worn, or Damaged Ladders  - Like food, ladders have a shelf life. Older ladders are more likely to break and should be inspected.
    3. Using a Ladder Incorrectly - Human error is the leading cause of ladder accidents! Place the ladder on firm, level ground. If possible, have a helper support the base.
    4. Not Using a Ladder When You Need to - People sometimes use a chair, box, bucket, etc. to stand on to reach something stored in a high place. This increases the risk of injury.

Image:  Falling off a Ladder

A good rule, this month and every month, is if you can't reach it without standing on something, get a ladder. Or, if that's TOO large, try a Safety Step Stool!

  • Three (3) spring-loaded, swiveling casters make it easy to kick or push out of the way or into position
  • When weight is placed on the stool a non-skid vinyl bumper rests directly on the floor to prevent movement
  • Passes EN 141183 Testing Standard
    Maximum weight load: 150kg (330lbs)
