Liquid-in-Glass Thermometers

Gilson General-Lab Liquid-in-Glass (LiG) Thermometers meet Scientific Apparatus Makers Association (SAMA) standards. They are available in mercury-filled and spirit-filled (non-mercury) models, with partial or total immersion and a variety of °C and °F temperature ranges.

*Note: Please check your state and local ordinances controlling mercury instruments before ordering. Regulations are constantly changing, and Gilson may not be permitted to ship these devices to you.


Liquid-in-Glass Thermometers for Lab Use
  • Mercury-in-Glass Thermometers use traditional mercury as an indicating fluid. They have a single scale to SAMA standards with engraved stems and are calibrated for total immersion.
  • Non-Mercury Thermometers are traditional glass thermometers filled with an environmentally safe, non-hazardous liquid.
  • Mercury-Filled Armored Thermometers are housed in a removable rugged brass case that provides protection from breaking and spilling of hazardous mercury. Thermometers for general laboratory meet NIST requirements and tolerances. Cases have slotted front for ease of reading and built-in suspension rings. They have etched black divisions against a yellow background. Refill thermometers are available to order.
  • Non-Mercury Armored Thermometers are red spirit-filled with a rugged, removable brass case that protects the thermometer from breakage.
