Dial Thermometers
(Bimetal Thermometers)

Bimetal thermometers or dial thermometers are durable, inexpensive and often recalibratable.

Metal expands and contracts when heated and cooled. Different metals expand or contract at different rates. Bimetal thermometer sensors are constructed of two different metals bonded together. When heated, the combination will bend because one metal is expanding faster than the other.

A bimetal strip can be wound in the shape of a coil, similar to the mainspring of a clock. In this shape the coil will wind, or unwind, as the temperature changes. If one end of the coil is held so that it cannot move, the other end will be free to move. A pointer is attached to the free end, and the temperature registers on the dial beneath the pointer. The scale is calibrated to the bimetal coil. Bimetal coils vary in length from just over one inch to up to two inches.

Here are some of our dial thermometers:
