(3) In accordance with TM 38-750, annotate and affix DA Label 80 (U.S. Army
Calibration System). When the TI cannot be adjusted within tolerance, annotate
and affix DA Form 2417 (Unserviceable or Limited Use) tag.
In this lesson we have discussed the calibration standards used to calibrate temperature
sensing devises at the transfer and secondary reference level, it is or should be apparent
that much more material could be covered. However, the state of the art of thermometery
is constantly changing. New techniques and standards are being developed to further
simplify and maintain accuracies during the calibration process.
A thorough knowledge of the fundamentals of thermometry and the development of
manipulative skills using the prescribed standards will greatly increase your value to your
unit and the U.S. Army.
