FLUKE 62 MAX+

20 Ways You Can Save Time with Fluke 62 MAX+

The Fluke 62 MAX + Infrared Thermometer is a point and shoot device that can help you troubleshoot malfunctioning HVAC mechanical systems. This diagnostic tool can help you save money with its multiple usages:

 

  1. CHECK DISCHARGE AIR TEMPERATURE

 

You don’t have to use a ladder anymore when checking the discharge air temperature of an HVAC unit with a ceiling discharge with the Fluke 62 MAX + Infrared Thermometer. You can also use the values to adjust the control system

 

  1. CHECK THERMOSTAT ACCURACY

 

The Fluke 62 MAX+ IR Thermometer can quickly check the accuracy of the thermostat so you can make the appropriate adjustments or replacement (if needed).

 

  1. CHECK INLET AND OUTLET WATER TEMPERATURES

 

HVAC Systems’ water coils typically use hot or chilled water. This being said, you can use the Fluke 62 MAX+ IR Thermometer to check water temperatures in the inlet and outlet of the coil. This will indicate proper water temperature, heat transfer, and valve operation. It can also indicate if there are problems with water balance.

 

  1. CHECK AIR HANDLER COIL TEMPERATURES

 

You can use the Fluke 62 MAX+ IR Thermometer to quickly check the coil temperatures of HVAC air handling units. This will minimize energy waste and maximize comfort.

 

  1. CHECK BOILER HOT WATER TEMPERATURES

 

You can check the hot water boiler temperatures easily and safely using the Fluke 62 MAX + IR Thermometer. By adjusting the water temperature to avoid getting off over the course of a heating season, you can avoid expensive energy expenses.

 

  1. CHECK STEAM TRAPS

 

Stream trap failure can result in a system freeze up when left unnoticed. With the Fluke 62 MAX+ IR Thermometer, you can quickly identify a steam trap that has failed either open or closed.

 

  1. CHECK AIR DISTRIBUTION

 

The Fluke 62 MAX + IR Thermometer can identify shut off discharge ducts by scanning the discharge temperatures of different ducts and taking note of those that show incorrect discharge temperature.

 

  1. CHECK FOR HOT AND COLD SPOTS

 

Hot and cold spots are caused by system design or installation and it can cause discomfort and complaints. The Fluke 62 MAX + IR Thermometer can identify the sources of this discomfort.

 

  1. CHECK POWER SUPPLIES IN A PANEL

 

The Fluke 62 MAX + IR Thermometer can identify the power supply that has failed and is causing improper system operation in an HVAC control panel that has multiple power supplies.

 

  1. CHECK HUMIDIFIER OPERATION

 

You can identify if there is water or steam present at the humidifier and if it is operating properly without direct contact with the humidifier using the Fluke 62 MAX + IR Thermometer.

 

  1. CHECK CHILLER SET POINTS

 

To avoid energy waste caused by the incorrect temperature of chilled water, you can use the Fluke 62 MAX + IR Thermometer to make sure the chilled water temperature provided to the building is the same with the set point.

 

  1. CHECK LOW-TEMPERATURE LIMITS

 

There is a low-temperature switch in almost every commercial air handling unit. This stops the supply fan to prevent the water coil from freezing up. But in cases that the low-temperature limit is incorrectly adjusted, you can use Fluke 62 MAX + IR Thermometer to check the calibration and adjust as needed.

 

  1. SAFE CHECKING OF CEILING MOUNT EQUIPMENT

 

When the HVAC equipment is located in a hazardous and hard to reach area, you can still check its temperature using the Fluke 62 MAX + IR Thermometer.

 

  1. CHECK THE OPERATION OF VAV BOX HOT WATER REHEAT

 

The most common type of HVAC system installed today is variable air volume or VAV.  Many VAV terminal boxes are located at the perimeter of the building and include hot water reheat coils. You can use the Fluke 62 MAX+ IR Thermometer to check the discharge air temperature of the VAV box as well as the reheat coil inlet and outlet water temperatures. These will indicate whether the hot water valve is opening and closing properly.

 

  1. CHECK RETURN AIR TEMPERATURES

 

The supply air temperature of an air handling unit isn’t the only thing that needs to be checked, it is advised to check the temperature of the return air from the room. The Fluke 62 MAX+ IR Thermometer is an ideal instrument to use to check the return air temperature.

 

  1. CHECK ELECTRIC HEATING COIL OPERATION

 

If the controls are functioning improperly, large energy waste can occur that leads to very high energy bills. You can use the Fluke 62 MAX+ IR Thermometer to check the correct temperature set points of the electric heating coils.

 

  1. CHECK COMPRESSOR TEMPERATURE

 

This can be very expensive. You can use the Fluke 62 MAX+ IR Thermometer to check the compressor temperatures and detect problems before they lead to expensive failures. This can also avoid product loss and system downtime.

 

  1. CHECK COOLER AND FREEZER TEMPERATURES

 

It is critical that products in coolers and freezers are maintained at the correct temperature. The Fluke 62 MAX+ IR Thermometer can quickly show that the products in a cooler or freezer are stored under the proper conditions. And at the same time, you can check the evaporator coil and discharge air temperatures as well.

 

  1. CHECK FOR DEFROST TEMPERATURE

 

You can easily check the defrost system operation with the Fluke 62 MAX+ IR Thermometer. Defrost systems are there to melt the ice when needed. If the defrost system fails to operate properly, the refrigeration system may ice up and fail, which will cause product loss.

 

  1. CHECK REFRIGERANT COIL SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND CONDENSER TEMPERATURES

 

Another usage of the Fluke 62 MAX+ IR Thermometer is to check the actual coil temperatures of refrigeration system evaporators and condensers. These temperatures specify proper system operation and efficiency. Improper coil temperatures can help identify problems while they are small and can be fixed easily.

 

The Fluke 62 MAX + Infrared Thermometer is indeed a device that makes measuring temperatures easier, quicker, and safer.
