Heron Dipper-Temp Temperature Meter
Heron Dipper-Temp Temperature Meter with Bag

Heron Dipper-Temp Temperature Meter

  • Static water level measurements.
  • Temperature measurements, -10°C to 80°C or -10°C to 110°C
  • 30 m (100 ft) to 150 m (500 ft) lengths available.

The dipper-Temp temperature meter is ideal for profiling temperature and static water levels in wells, boreholes, standpipes, lakes and rivers. Temperature can alter the physical and chemical properties of water and should be accounted for when determining an increased level in biological activity and water chemistry. Groundwater temperature surveys have also taken on a new significance as geothermal energy becomes more important for domestic heating and cooling. The premium padded carry case comes included to protect your precision instrument from the elements.

The dipper-Temp is available in 2 different tape jacketing’s:

The heat resistant Kynar jacketed measuring tape on the dipper-Temp-110 allows for temperature profiling up to 110˚C and is able to withstand hydrocarbons, solvents and other harsh contaminants.

The Polyethylene jacketed measuring tape on the dipper-Temp-80 allows for lower temperature profiling up to 80˚C. The markings are under the jacketing for long term readability.

  • Electronic Module (IP65) – displayed in degrees Celsius (-10˚ to 110˚) on a high contrast digital LCD display making it highly visible in the field, removable for easy cleaning and servicing
