Mercury in Glass Thermometers
European Commission Regulation EU 847/2012 of 19 September 2012 amending Annex XVII to Regulation EC 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) as regards mercury comes in to full force on the 10th October 2017.
As a result of this ruling ATAC Limited will no longer be able to supply customers with ASTM approved mercury in glass thermometers for temperature calibration of viscometers and vapour pressure analysers. ATAC has sourced a supply of ‘ASTM equivalent’ spirit filled thermometers, and all currently unfulfilled orders will be supplied with the equivalent spirit thermometer.
Part numbers for spares will be unchanged but will now refer to the equivalent spirit thermometer as above.
