The entire Tamson team wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
This year, Tamson celebrates its 140th Birthday.
Tamson is founded on 1 April 1878 by Mrs. Tamson in dedication to her husband, Paulus Marinus Tamson. Tamson started as a wholesaler. The company was trading in laboratory equipment in the field of chemistry and physics. By the 1950s, Tamson started the production of thermostatic baths and circulators. During the 190s, Tamson was famous for its catalog, populary called the 'yellow bible', because it was a very thick yellow catalog, full with all kinds of laboratory equipment. During the 1980s, Tamson also launched the TV2000, TV4000 and TV7000 for the first time, which are the predecessors of the modern day TV2000, TV4000 and TV7000. The famous PMT logo is still being used today.
The Tamson team is proud to work for a company which such a rich history that exists for 140 years this year.
Tamson Instruments is proud to announce that we finished production of a special a few weeks ago: Our T17000 bath, a bath that has a volume of 170 liters and can achieve a stability better than 0.01 degrees Celsius! The T17000 is for VSL Dutch Metrology Institute , where it will be used as diffusion bath for making dynamic gas mixtures with volatile organic components.
If you are interested in a T17000 as well, please contact our sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tamson Instruments is proud to present its apparatus for ASTM D1480, the density and relative density (specific gravity) of viscous materials by Bingham pycnometer. The apparatus for ASTM D1480 consists of our trusted TV12, a TLC10-3 cooling circulator, and Bingham pycnometers with holders.
The ASTM D1480 method covers two procedures for the measurement of the density of materials which are fluid at the desired test temperature. Its application is restricted to liquids of vapor pressures below 80 kPa (600 mm Hg) and viscosities below 40 000 mm²/s (cSt) at the test temperature. The method is designed for use at any temperature between 20°C and 100°C. It can be used at higher temperatures. For this test method, The liquid sample is introduced into the pycnometer, equilibrated to the desired temperature, and weighed. The density or specific gravity is then calculated from this weight and the previously determined calibration factor, and a
correction is applied for the buoyancy of air.
The same apparatus can be used with 25mL Bingham Pycnometers for ASTM D1217.

We would like to thank the DC Scientific team for hosting the hospitality suite at the ASTM D02 meeting in Houston and for welcoming our Director, Roland van Hall, in Houston to represent Tamson at the ASTM.
Thank you to DC Scientific for showing our TFBT and TV12LT at the hospitality suite!
As of the 10th October 2017 Tamson Instruments BV will not be supplying mercury in glass thermometers.
This is to conform with EU Reach Regulation 2006 restricting the sale of measuring devices that contain mercury.
Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, original entry 18a 18a.
Mercury CAS No. 7439-97-6
EC No. 231-106-7
This regulation restricted all mercury containing measuring devices intended for industrial and professional usage, not being placed into the market place after 10th April 2014. The restriction in paragraph 5 of the above regulation shall not apply to thermometers exclusively intended to perform tests according to standards that require the use of mercury thermometers until 10 October 2017.
As a result of this regulation Tamson Instruments is no longer able to supply mercury in glass thermometers. However, we are able to supply thermometers with a blue filling that conforms with EU regulations. These thermometers are not hazardous to ship.
Another option is our E20 Thermometer, which can be found here.
