The measurement of temperature and humidity is an essential part of our daily lives – both at work and in our private homes. Temperature and humidity are vital parameters in process industries and the energy sector, but also in the pharmaceutical, chemical and ceramic industries they play an important role.

In Denmark, there are three DANIAmet NMI’s (National Metrological Institutes) covering the field of temperature and humidity measurements. Their application areas are listed below:

Contact Thermometry – Danish Technological Institute

The Danish Technological Institute achieved status of National Reference Laboratory for Contact Thermometry in 1992. The institute possesses the temperature fixed points necessary for establishing traceability for Standard Platinum Resistance Thermometers (SPRT’s) to the International Temperature Scale of 1990 (ITS-90) in the range -40 °C to +660 °C.

Non-contact Thermometry – DTU-RISØ

The National Laboratory at RISØ – now a part of the Danish Technical University (DTU) – achieved status of National Reference Laboratory for Non-contact Thermometry in 2002. With reference blackbodies traceable to NPL (National Physics Laboratory, UK), DTU-RISØ can establish traceability for pyrometers, infrared thermometers and spectrometers to the ITS-90 temperature scale in the range -40 °C to +1600 °C.

Humidity – Delta

Delta achieved status of National Reference Laboratory for Humidity in 1997. With reference to MIKES and NPL, Delta can offer traceable calibration of dew-point hygrometers in the range -75 °C to +82 °C and relative humidity meters in the range 5% RH to 96% RH.
