The Extech Dual Laser InfraRed Thermometer features a fast 100mS response with highest accuracy at a point where the dual lasers converge. The fast response is ideal for quick checks of multiple spots in a process or for catching spikes in temperature. The high 50:1 distance to target ratio measures smaller surface areas at greater distances.
A type K thermocouple probe input ranges from -58 to 2498°F (.50 to 1370°C). The white backlit multifunction LCD displays a bargraph for analysis of data points. The adjustable high/low set points with audible alarm alerts users when the temperature exceeds the programmed set points. Also included is a tripod mount for continous readings, and software to connect to a PC via USB port.

Rivers are a vital cooling source for power plants, but high-temperature water returned to rivers from the plants may detrimentally heat rivers and change aquatic ecosystems, according to a recent study.
Scientists from the University of New Hampshire and the City College of New York gathered federal data on power plants and river systems and linked up river flow and heat transfer models to figure out just how hot rivers get in the northeastern U.S.
They found that about one third of heat generated in thermoelectric power plants in the Northeast is drained into rivers via used cooling water. Just more than a third of the total heat generated at plants in the Northeast is converted directly into electricity for consumer use.Read More
The Charles River used to be a swimming hotspot for Cambridge and Boston residents.
Decades of industrial pollution and nutrient runoff have degraded water quality and eliminated public swimming in the Lower Charles, but a movement is afoot to get Boston and Cambridge back in the water. One step toward the goal of a safely swimmable river—without the need to obtain a permit, as is now necessary—is detecting and managing the harmful algal blooms that appear on the river.
An experimental floating wetland and new research and analysis of water quality data that shows a possible effective detection system for algal blooms on the Charles River are two new steps toward the goal of safe, accessible swimming.Read More
The Gulf Stream, the massive western boundary current off the east coast of North America, moves water from the Gulf of Mexico north and west across the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a lot of energy in that much moving water and researchers are trying to put it to use.
Although the Gulf Stream’s path shifts (researchers say it acts like a wiggling garden hose), in a couple of spots, it stays relatively stable. At one such spot off the coast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, researchers have dropped moorings and research instruments to study the current with the eventual goal of harnessing it for renewable energy.Read More
